    I just saw a commercial for Direct TV and Patten Manning was joking about Tapanade not exactly being a dish you'd eat while watching football.

    I looked it up and it looks tasty. I also love Hummus. Man, that's a great dip with Doritos.

    Looks like something a farm animal would leave behind.

    Sounds almost as good as salsa.

    It also looks healthy.

    I'm gonna try to ether buy some or make some.......but I'm not eating it during a football game.

    I'll break out my Blue Ray copy of Pride & Prejudice.

    It's very salty! But it's excellent mixed into cream cheese and spread on bread or crackers. Particularly if one's going to top them with some gravlax.....

    Also good mixed into the mayo of a roast beef or smoked turkey and provolone sandwich on rye or dense 'artisan' bread.

    Oh, yeah - and you can toss it into the hummus, too. Great for dipping baby carrots into..........

    Now I have to look up gravlax.


    Sounds like a laxative.

    Why not eat it during the football game? Salty snacks mix really good with beer!
