Firstly, just because I am posting a New England post today does not mean that I am endorsing the New England Patriots in this Sunday’s AFC Championship.
Because, Steelers. Duh.
Also, I actively hate the New England Patriots with a fiery passion.
And doesn’t everyone by now? I totally don’t understand the people in Baltimore who are all still like “boo, Steelers!” Um. C’mon! I was totally rooting for the Ravens vs. Pats that year that the Ravens made it to the Super Bowl and Beyonce shut the mutherfucker down.
I’d be all-Ravens all-day if the roles were reversed. The enemy of my enemy is my friend, no?
But back to the Pats–on Sunday I want Tom Brady to be pressured (ok, hit #sorrynotsorry) a lot in the game. Not just because, BRADY. But when it happens, he gets all pissed/frustrated and does Tom Brady Tiny Mouth™
But anyhoo! Although I am anti-New England, I am pro-New England food.
So let’s get to Locke Ober’s New England Boiled Dinner!
Locke Ober is the third oldest restaurant in Boston.
Locke Ober hosted Massachusetts royalty. Example: JFK Lobster Stew
Locke Ober is where I first tried Boodles Gin (which became my favorite gin) while I was in graduate school.
So I was happy to see that, in my first edition copy of Vincent Price’s Treasury of Great Recipes, there are a handful of recipes from this now-defunct restaurant.
I don’t wanna toot my own horn and shit, but I am pretty proud of my presentation there.
But this one was kinda bland. I mean, there’s not a lot going on there. But it was still good! I’m a fan of these types of meals.
Anyway, in closing, I hope everyone has a lovely remainder of their week and enjoys the football–if that’s youur thing.
I want a Pittsburgh/Green Bay rematch. But those are my 2 favorite teams, so it’s a win-win for me either way. But how about you?
