The Big Game Appetizers

By, Bob DeWitt, Newburgh Meat Manager

The NY Giants were in the Super Bowl in 2008 against the New England Patriots, who had gone undefeated up until that game. My wife Elisa is a paint-your-face-red-and-blue Giants fan, so we decided to have a few people over to watch the game. To make the party really special we went out and bought a 42” flat screen TV, a huge purchase for us. Then we got a whole bunch of frozen appetizers and we were set for the Big Game. And what a game it was! With just over two minutes to play the Giants marched down the field and scored a touchdown to complete the upset. The TV was the hit of the party. The food wasn’t. Had the Giants lost, the party would have been almost a complete failure, although we still have the TV. But I’ll never forget how disappointed I was with the food.


The Giants aren’t in the Super Bowl this year, but the Patriots are. If you’re planning to have a party, chances are the Meat Department isn’t necessarily on your list of places to get your food. Well I’d like to help you learn from my mistake! There are so many outstanding choices of fresh and oven ready items that will really make your Super Bowl party stand out from any you’ve ever experienced. Pork Tenderloins stuffed with our Apple Raisin stuffing, or just seasoned with our salt-free Garlic and Parsley seasoning is an easy way to upgrade your table. A half an hour to forty five minutes in the oven and they’re ready to slice and platter. Everyone loves our Adams Meatballs, and we make them from Turkey or Chicken as well. Bake them in the oven or make a crock pot full of them and some of your guests might just miss the big plays! And those of you who love our Gourmet Beef Burgers, you’ll absolutely go wild for their little cousins, our Gourmet Beef Sliders, also hand formed and loaded with flavors that will Knock you out like a full on linebacker blitz. In our Fresh Meat case you’ll find what you need for the best Pulled Pork or Fall-Off-the-Bone Baby Back Ribs as well as Coarse Ground Beef that makes the best Chili! We’ll even put a chili pepper in the package! If you want to make this Super Bowl special, even if the Giants aren’t in it, and you want your friends to remember the food and not the new TV, come on in and let’s do this together! We’ll huddle up with all the other Food Departments and run the play that’ll put you in the end zone like that sweet 13 yard pass from Eli to Burress. And when it’s all over and the confetti is all cleaned up, we’ll dream of next year when it could be the Giants versus the Jets!

On Saturday, January 24th, Sean Lacy will conduct a Seminar at 1:00 “The Big Game Appetizers”. Sean will show you how you can make his award winning Chicken Wings, as well as several other appetizers that will make you shine like the Lombardi Trophy. We look forward to seeing you there, and once again, Thank You for shopping at Adams.
