Letterman , Leno and Oprah Together?

Posted in Comedy, Late Night TV, NY Times with tags , , on February 8, 2010 by mattyfresh697400

The spot was a quick one and almost subtle, but midway through the Superbowl Sunday night CBS aired a brief spot for “The Late Show with David Letterman” with Leno, Dave and Oprah sitting on a couch watching the Superbowl. I know everyone at my little Super Sunday gathering kind of looked at each other , and was like “that was wierd” and sort of understood how crazy it was given the recent Network Late Night Soap Opera. But honestly it was so underplayed that I actually thought it was pretty cool.

But the real craziness was how this spot came together and how rival networks , put three of the most famous people in the country in the same room together to film the spot.

Mardi Gras 2010….3 Weeks Long???

Mardi Gras Just Got a A Little Longer!!!

Bourbon Street

I have had the distinct pleasure of going to Mardi Gras on 4 separate occasions , each year more insane than the next. With a best friend at TULANE University, the annual trip during my college years was an incredible highlight that I think of often.

But in the year 2010, just hours after the Saints won the first Superbowl in the history of the Franchise….MARDI GRAS has come early. And with the official start of the greatest party on the planet still  7 days away , its safe to say Bourbon Street will be mayhem for the next few weeks and in the N.O. trust me when I say the party goes all day and all night.  As I said last night, this city deserves it!

Saints Win

Tonight was a great night not only for Football fans everywhere but also a great night for America and of course most importantly the city of New Orleans.  Hurricane Katrina was a real American tragedy that will be discussed and debated for years to come. Americans looks at the tragedy in Haiti and as terrible as it is , it still feels distant. Katrina happened right here in our backyard, an event most proud Americans could never have dreamt would happen within the borders of our great Nation. BUT…It did happen and the city has been rebuilding ever since.

The Superbowl is arguably the biggest single day sporting event in the world and with the media spotlight back on the N.O. this team rose to the occasion , and put the city on its back and the Saints faithful rode Drew Brees, Jeremy Schockey and Reggie Bush all the way to the Super Bowl Championship and gave the wonderful city of New Orleans something to brag about and cherish forever..They Certainly DESERVE IT!!

This is why I LOVE AMERICA!!

Super Bowl Sunday Stuffed Shells!!

Posted in Superhero Movies with tags on February 7, 2010 by mattyfresh697400

Today is the day of the big game, and also the one day out of the year where I break out my signature (and perhaps my only) gourmet dish: My Super Bowl Sunday Stuffed Shells. This is an old secret RONZONI family recipe passed down from the side of the pasta box directly to me. But seriously the shells are a great addition to any Superbowl party. For my dedicated readers you can find the recipe below…YOUR WELCOME!!

Now as far as the game goes, my heart is the New Orleans (If any city needs a lift its the N.O) , but my mind says Peyton and The Colts will take the game > Colts Win 34 – 31!

Superbowl Sunday Stuffed Shells


1 pound ground beef
1 large onion chopped
1 clove garlic chopped, to taste
8 ounces mozzarella cheese shredded
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1 each egg
1 x salt to taste
1 x black pepper to taste
1 x parsley leaves to taste
1 x oregano to taste
18 each pasta shells, jumbo
1 jar spaghetti sauce
1/2 cup parmesan, parmigiano-reggiano cheese, grated grated


Brown ground meat, onion and garlic.

Drain and cool.

Cook shells in boiling water about 15 minutes, drain.

Into meat mixture, stir in mozzarella cheese, bread crumbs, egg and seasonings.

Spread 1/4 of the jar of sauce into a baking dish Stuff the shells with the meat mixture and place in dish on top of sauce.

Pour remaining sauce over the stuffed shells and sprinkle with the parmesan cheese.

Cover with foil and bake at 375 for 20-25 minutes.

Freezing instructions: I have frozen this dish several times with success.

Use the foil pans for this or put foil in your baking dish before the sauce and assembling shells.

You can cook the shells then cool and freeze; thaw and reheat at 350 Degrees till heated through

You can also freeze the stuffed shells before cooking, then thaw and cook as directed.

The only thing I have noticed when freezing is that you may need to add more sauce over the top.
