Eating the Opponent: Green Bay vs. Atlanta

It's time for Georgia peaches and Coke with peanuts!

Last year I made peach cobbler and it was delicious. I also have peach jam this year - made from Wisconsin and Upper Michigan peaches, but tasty. Very tasty. We served Coke products with the meal, of course.

If you're new to Eating the Opponent, we've developed a tradition of looking at the Green Bay Packers schedule and serving a local dish from the opposing team's locale. Sometimes it's sincere, sometimes it's tongue in cheek. We had bear claws for breakfast the day of last season's Conference Championship game in Chicago.

Lately, Wisconsin sports fans have offered up a lot of great play for fans, and a lot of fun eating for us. Our Brewers keep on hitting and defending their Beast-ly title, too. And the Wisconsin Badgers? Last week was easy; sweet corn on the cob to represent Nebraska. This weekend, we'll eat our fill of good food and cheer on our favorite team: last year's Super Bowl Champs, the Green Bay Packers.
