Before Thanksgiving: Appetizers for Football and Bribes

Thanksgiving‘s just around the corner, so to speak. Today’s the last day of the college football season for some teams, and that’s a more pressing issue for most of us. Almost no football left!

What to serve to the screaming hordes who are coming over to watch the game on your 112-inch flat-screen plasma TV? (You […]
