PHILADELPHIA, PA — The word is out about Habs Tweetup – people all over the world are discovering for themselves why it’s so much fun to get together with other fans of the Montreal Canadiens and make new friends both far and wide. But like the old saying “food is family”, one of the most important ingredients of a successful Habs Tweetup is making sure there’s a selection of tasty treats on the menu.
On a day when folks are prepping for their Heritage Classic parties and gathering around their televisions for Hockey Day in America coverage, I’m excited to announce a new weekly feature here at HabsTweetup.com. For all you foodies out there (whether you’re the one who likes to cook or the one who likes to eat) we’ll be spotlighting a collection of recipes to tempt your tastebuds.
Some weeks you’ll see a theme, other times we’ll feature a recipe simply because it’s scrumptious. Do you have a favourite recipe you’d like to share? Perhaps you have a lucky dish you make for every Habs game? We’d love to serve it up to our readers! Send your recipes to email@example.com – you can even include a photo of the finished product.
Since today promises to be an exceptionally cold experience for the Canadiens and their fans attending the Heritage Classic in McMahon Stadium, we decided to pay tribute to those brave souls with our inaugural recipe.
It’s no secret that the Habs have a tried and true method for keeping warm at an outdoor game – steaming hot chicken soup is always on hand behind the bench. Nothing beats the original, simmered all day on the stovetop. It’s simple but comforting food – cook up a batch before the big game!
