leave your inhibitions at the door
I never thought I’d hear myself say this but, mercifully, this football season is almost over. It was an ugly week for this Bears fan, topped by their losing badly to a mediocre Seattle Seahawks team. A couple of days before the game one of their receivers, Sam Hurd, got pinched for receiving a bunch of cocaine with intention of selling – to other NFL players and the general Chicago drug-using community. Obviously there’s a lot wrong with this situation because of the whole drugs being illegal thing and that athletes are usually role models. But here are some other observations:
So all of these things combined made for a bummer of a football week. Or it could just be that this week’s losing produce – a black Spanish radish – was pretty uninspiring.
Sweet and Sour Black Spanish Radish
This was a very simple recipe and I had very low expectations. It wasn’t bad, but it’s not one I personally would choose to make again. The radishes themselves are very spicy and this recipe killed all of the sharpness out of them. Boom Boom gave it a thumbs-down – not so much because of the flavor, but because the radishes and leaks are going to wreak havoc on our gastrointestinal systems. Recipe is from http://www.fruitguys.com.

This week’s guest produce is a sweet potato.
