Week 2 – On the road again, just can’t wait to get on the road again

Seriously, Miami is not kind to our Pats.  It’s one of those things like the long history of bad Detroit teams playing like heroes on the Thanksgiving day games.  We just don’t do well down there.  Hard to watch as it seemed like the team kept doing what it could to have an off day.

Today though is another day.  MN?  Yup, we’re in MN.  My last personal trip there was late December in my prior job to visit a vendor.  I remember it was below zero and my goatee froze on the walk to the cab.  That’s cold.  This trip though is in mild fall and it’s time for us to get on the same page in all aspects.  Mostly by that I mean let’s see the lines step up.  Offense and Defense.  We aren’t going to have a good year if teams keep running over 190 yards on us and Brady has constant visitors in the back field.

So what’s the food for today’s game?  Glad you asked.  After an exceptionally busy week of packaging and brewing capped by Passport in Portsmouth I’m spent.  I still want something more than chips in a bag so I’ve one upped the chips in a bag. Read on for the simply tasty snack….

Cheesy Chips

cheesychips (1024x768)


1 bag of chips.  I like to do this with the Tostidos Scoops
1 cup of shredded pepperjack or your favorite cheese.

Spread the chips out in an even layer on a large cookie sheet.  Sprinkle the shredded cheese on the chips evenly.  Bake at 350 for 10-15 minutes or until you see the cheese getting a golden edge on it.  Remove and let cool for a few minutes and enjoy.

The baking let’s the chips stay crunchy which is key if you decide to accent with salsa, picante, french onion or any other dip.  Make no mistake, this incredibly simple recipe is way too tasty on it’s own.  The pepperjack cheese gives it just enough zip to make everyone happy.  So happy you’ll wind up making a second or third batch.

I’ll be enjoying mine with a Hop Session and rooting for a solid W in Minnesota.  Hope you enjoy today’s game with friends, family, good food and of course great beer.
