     For as long as I can remember, we would have nachos for dinner on the day of the Oscars.  We would gather around the plate of glass resting on a pair of iron rams heads in our living room, trying to find a comfortable position from which we could both see the TV and eat the tray of nachos Dad had just placed on top of a pair of pot holders in the middle of the glass.  Dad's nacho recipe has always been fairly simple, grated cheddar layered with triangular tortilla chips.  Tonight Mom and Dad will be at a friends Oscar party,  though Cy, Mimi and I will still squeeze around the plate-glass table with a plate of nachos.  I'm going to try and spice up the recipe a bit though.  I think I'll add mozzarella, olives, taco meat, maybe we'll see something else at the grocery store to add to the nachos.


  1. Those look tasty. I assume that somewhere, someone does a menu inspired by the nominations. For instance, Winter's Bone would inspire a squirrel dish or "deer stew." I haven't seen the other movies with nominations, but would guess The King's Speech would support some tongue preparation, or at least Bangers-n-Mash. Discuss.

  2. Something weird happened to this post. It got completely butchered leaving only the first part. The ending got completely cut off! I bet it's a blogger bug.

    Mom says they had squirrel (chicken) stew at the party as well as "True Grits"
