Red Sox Opening Day 2017
Go Sox! Nice to start the season off with a win.
We are a site that celebrates culture, and depending on where you are, certain sports are a big part of that. In my case, you take the girl out of Boston, you can’t take the Boston out of the girl.
To celebrate the start of the new season, we made a mess of the living room while we shelled our peanuts, and had to add some masala to our pigs in a blanket with some curry ketchup. I was tempted to make our own Cracker Jacks that actually taste good… but we ran out of time (as usual! the scarcest commodity). Speaking of scarce, who bought up the entire neighborhood’s supply of cracker jacks? Should have planned ahead and scored some via Amazon.
If you’re feeling it, here’s a Spotify playlist we put together to get us in the spirit. Might also be fun to check out these great and varied versions of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame,” compiled by Fender.
What are you doing to ring in baseball season? Any other fun flavor or tradition twists out there?
* Don’t be fooled by some of the “recipes” you find for cooking the curry into the ketchup! Just stir that curry powder (we prefer the yellow Madras kind) into your favorite ketchup.
