If you're a fan of period dramas (think Mad Men) that are binge-watch-worthy I have one you need to check out: Narcos. It's set in the late '70's and details the life and (many) deaths surrounding Columbian drug kingpin Pablo Escobar.
Bob and I adore sharing our favorite dishes with you. Actually, that's probably more my thing but, when he's not making me laugh, he does a lot of taste testing and takes all the photos. Is he a great husband or what?
Before we kick off a new round of recipes for this year, I thought it would be fun to see which of last year's picks you all liked the most. So let's take a look at the top 3 Boomer Brief recipes from 2015.
My mom Patsy's yummy potato salad is one of our all-time favorite sides as well as your number 3 pick for 2015. It's comforting, creamy and calls for only 10 ingredients. Mom and I like using Miracle Whip (or Miracle Whip Light) instead of mayonnaise to save calories. Sweet and dill pickle relishes, dill weed, white vinegar and yellow mustard provide a nice zing.

When we moved to Texas and my husband joined the faculty of Texas Christian University, we accepted the serious responsibility that came with it to follow college football. TCU's Horned Frogs are the pride of Fort Worth, and it was for one of their away games that I hosted my first-ever "football-watching party," a task that, not having ever been a sports fan, seemed somewhat exotic.
WOW is it 2016 already?! That means it's time to wipe the blood smudges off the old crystal ball and see what we're in for this year.
Before I get to that, let me APOLOGIZE for getting all of my 2015 predictions WRONG.
In my defense, I really DID think 2015 was the year for the Zombie invasion and I'm sitting on a crap load of T-Shirts that say, I Survived the 2015 Zombie Apocalypse. I'm paying for my mistake. Trust me. Looks like Cole will have to unload 'em in the estate sale when I've gone to that big ol' blog in the sky.
Like you, I'm bummed we didn't get pizza delivery by teleportation, or a permanent ban on Taylor Swift music, but some good things did happen. Remember when Tony Romo beat Tom Brady in the Super Bowl? Wait...that DIDN'T happen? I've gotta stop getting my drugs predictions from that guy in the parking lot of the Euless Wal-Mart.
Not to worry, he's given me some tips I KNOW will come true this year. Sitting up here in my secret lair (It's really just a rusted out VW Microbus off Highway 10), I see the faint glimmer of hope. It's either that or the sunlight reflecting off the dull yellow eyes of my tweaked out muse.
When I asked for his 2016 guidance, his lips curled into what he'd call a smile and he said, "Buckle up, buttercup. Shit's about to get real."
