Even though football season is over, I’m still sharing game day food with you because we have the OLYMPICS.
I’m not as big on the winter Olympics as summer (hello gymnastics), but I do like to flip it on every now and then. The other night I watched snowboard cross which was terrifying to me given that I can barely get down the mountain on skis. I liked their outfits though.
On Saturday one of the bars in Federal Hill opened at 7AM and did a $9 all-you-can-drink special for the USA hockey game. This is why I’ll miss Baltimore.
I mean, I wasn’t there. I was at school doing thesis testing. But I heard it was fun. And crowded and rowdy.
But if you’re watching biathlon or curling in the comfort of your own home, I suggest you make yourself a snack. Buffalo chicken sandwiches and this slaw to make them special.
Celery & Blue Cheese Slaw
adapted from An Edible Mosaic
2-3 stalks celery, small dice
1 carrot, peeled and shredded
1-2 cloves garlic, minced
2-3 scallions, sliced thinly
1/4 cup plain nonfat Greek yogurt
1-2 tbs mayonnaise
1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese
salt and pepper, to taste
This is pretty straightforward. Chop up the celery. I peeled the carrots and then kept peeling, and then chopped up the thin strips a little bit more. Add in the garlic, scallions, and blue cheese. Stir in the yogurt and then add a little bit of mayo. You could probably do all yogurt too if you’re a mayo hater.
Refrigerate until serving. This was perfect with the hot and spicy buffalo chicken- I just used the same method as I do when I make chicken wing dip. It would also be great on chicken wing burgers or buffalo shrimp po boys, too. I think I have a buffalo problem.
It just shows I’m American.
