It's Cheese soup with beer and brats in the soup!! MAN..does that scream Wisconsin all the way or what???!! I tried it, loved it.

    Interesting and finally fun night at PackAttack out at Dale's Weston Lanes. Greg Jennings was scheduled to be on the show..and he didn't. Long story of miscues, but bottom line Johnnie Gray and Brian Graff of TV 9 FILLED FOR TIME! And man..I know..that is a tough thing to do. A crowd of Packer fans were expecting to see Greg at 6:30pm. Greg finally showed at 8:15pm. So Johnnie and Brian talked to the crowd..kept them engaged for over an hour. Dale Elliott..I have to say is a "go with the flow" guy and I love him for that. AND ONCE GREG showed up...it was all good! I snapped this pic of Greg Jennings, Johnnie Gray, and me! ((Bonus Keyword: "LovePackers"))

    All the turkey in the world has now been "for the most part" eaten! BUT..you have leftovers!! I asked friend of the show super Chef Tommy Gibbons..who lands planes while stirring his fantastic sauces at the Airport Restaurant..to come up with the "Top 5 recipes for Leftover Turkey!!! Yeah!!! They are:..1)...Uncle Wally's Hangover Hash (like Corn Beef Hash just substitute with Turkey) 2)...Turkey Panini sandwich (grill your bread..try different kinds of breads and sandwich spreads for a unique change of pace) 3)...Turkey Alfredo Pasta!!! (Heck Yeah!!) 4)...Turkey Soup with Wasabi Dumplings (Tom King would like a gallon of that please..thank you) 5)...Turkey Quesadillas (Go Mexican for a real twist). Great ideas and MAN you will need them cause you could need a variation on turkey for a month! ((Bonus Keyword: "yummy"))

     

  • Tweet Emotion...

    twitter

    Read a great article that talks about "emotion" in Tweeting. How rare is that?? Emotion in your tweets!? If you're saying "watching Grey's Anatomy"..sorry..no emotion there. If you're saying "Somebody needs to tell the Chief to STOP DRINKING!!" Now that's emotion. We're all guilty of punchin' out the "I'm walking my dog" crap just to remain on the screen, but if you think about what you're doing..tweet about what you're feeling. I'll bet you'll be on somebody's favorite list in no time...((bonus keyword: "emotion"))

In fact..they're talking about making snow Monday and Tuesday of THIS WEEK!!

    Well here we go! The name of the new Dave Kallaway blog is...(drum rolls, tympani, a triangle please,and a side order of cymbals)

    "SuperkallaBLOGalistic"

    I shot the idea of a new name to tons of people on Facebook, Twitter, texted friends and WIFC staff. NOBODY could agree on what to go with..so I knew I was onto something good! Plus, I needed something that looked, felt, and created a different vibe on wifc.com for a blog. I'm sorry. I think weird and I needed a name for the blog that reflected that. The name, by the way, came from David "DAK" Colthurst from the Fabulous Beer Pigs..the trivia team that Stacy Cole and I belong to! Thanks David..it was the one that made little lights go off in my head and made me smile.

    Other new parts to this blog..you'll be able to comment right here, share this blog on Facebook, and Twitter AND..I'll be posting lots of keywords in each blog..you 95-5 Rewards players will love that! So stay tuned..watch for updates galore. SuperkallaBLOGalistic!!
