QUICK APPS & FOOTBALL SNAPS: Week 4 – Crab rangoons
I love the shit out of takeout.
I love it so much because it’s not only convenient, it’s predictable. I don’t have to think when I’m ordering; I just do it. Japanese – give me miso soup and a Philadelphia roll. Pizza joint – pepperoni topping and mild wings on the side. Mexican – all the chicken quesadillas I can handle.
And when it comes to Chinese food, these little suckers need to be ordered: crab rangoons.
I know not what rangoon truly means; I’ve only ever seen it paired with the word “crab.” (I lied; I just Googled it. It’s also the capital and largest city of Myanmar. THE MORE YOU KNOW.)
These deep-fried dumplings are a combo of crab meat and cream cheese that sweetens the senses, and they don’t always have to be so unhealthy-ish. Take the frying out, lighten the cream cheese, and you have something not half bad.
Week 4 (Sept. 25-Sept. 29): Crab Rangoons
Knowledge while you nosh:
Welp, we’re just starting Week 4 and, thus far, only three teams go undefeated: the Philadelphia Eagles, Arizona Cardinals, and Cincinnati Bengals. Also, the latter two teams have a bye this week, which means they won’t be playing, leaving Philly as the team to have a shot at the first to have a four-win streak. They’ll face off against the San Francisco 49ers (at team whose records sits at 1-2) at 4:25 p.m. on Sunday on Fox.
Kicking off the week tonight is the New York Giants vs. the Washington Redskins at 8:25 p.m. on CBS. Monday Night Football goes to the New England Patriots and Kansas City Chiefs, who play at 8:30 p.m. on ESPN.
*Note that all times are EST and you may not be able to get certain games, depending on the area in which you live.
