Here’s the good news Saints fans: We don’t need Marques Colston to beat the Redskins. Here’s the better news: One of our division rivals is guaranteed a loss this weekend…either the Bucs or the Falcons, as they’ll play each other in an NFC South battle this Sunday in Tampa Bay. Oh football gods, how you’ve smiled on me!
Since I plan on tailgating at this weekend’s game at FedEx Field, I felt it necessary for this week’s Chick Chow to reflect the spirit of outdoor grilling. As for the Chick Sip, well…any old excuse to show that picture of Clinton Portis. Besides, nothing says ‘I’m drunk as a skunk’ like dressing up in a yellow wig and heart-shaped glasses and calling yourself ‘Bro Sweets.’
So prepare to watch our team win and one of our enemies lose with full bellies and drunken eyes thanks to this week’s Chick Chow and Chick Sips: Cajun Broiled Redskin Potatoes & Bro Sweets & Sour Tea.
Cajun Broiled Redskin Potatoes
3 lbs Redskin Potatoes (cut into wedges)
3 tsp olive oil
3 tsp chopped, fresh rosemary
3 chopped garlic cloves
5 tsp chopped parsley
1 tsp Crab Boil
Place pre-boiled potatoes on a sheet of foil. Drizzle with olive oil and crab boil and toss with fresh ingredients. Fold over the foil and place it on the grill. Turn potatoes over every 2 minutes and remove when the potatoes turn golden brown. Once they’re ready, take the potatoes off the grill and sprinkle with remaining seasoning to taste.
Bro Sweets and Sour Tea
1/2 oz Spiced Rum
1/2 oz Whiskey
1/2 oz Gin
3/4 Sweet and Sour Mix
Splash Coca Cola
Mix up all the liquor. Mix in the sweet and sour and the coca cola. Add ice, shake it all up, and prepare not to see straight.
