Election night dinner should be simple, satisfying and strong (as in a strong martini).
Whether you are watching the election returns with like-minded family, with a mixed crowd or on your own sofa, on your own, you’re going to need some serious sustenance as the numbers come in tonight. That’s one thing we can all agree on.
Let’s agree on this: Our election night dinner needs to be simple, satisfying and a little bit strong. While we’re at it, let’s make it patriotic, too. An easy dinner of take-out cheese-and-tomato pizza, a Spinach Blueberry Salad and a strong, classic dry American martinidoes the trick. And it’s red-white-and-blue to boot. There is nothing hard about this menu (except the alcohol, which will be much-needed). Just set a calendar reminder to call your favorite pizza place after you drop by the grocery for some spinach and blueberries, and you’re set. Oh, and make sure your remote’s got new batteries; you’re probably going to be flipping channels a lot.
Comfort on days like this should be easy, because, let’s face it, red or blue, we have more pressing things to worry about than watching the oven.
