Ask him a question about his beloved team Jordan Scarlett Jersey , and the first words from his mouth are “WhoDat? Who Dat?”Still, Temple, a noted chef who has cooked for several NFL players, including Malcolm Jenkins, Brandin Cooks and All-Pro receiver Michael Thomas, recognizes there are three other teams remaining in the playoffs. So when Hormel Chili asked him to create dips for the Super Bowl, he dived right in with versions that reflect not only New Orleans, but New England, Los Angeles and Kansas City .“The beautiful thing about it is chili and football go hand in hand,” Temple says, noting Hormel was a partner with the NFL as far back as the 1950s. “At tailgates or with friends at a viewing party or wherever, it is easy to accommodate a larger crowd.”But his chore for now is to accommodate four distinctly different tastes as part of a contest in which fans will include touchdown dances; a winner and a guest will get tickets to the 2020 Super Bowl in Miami.We won’t give away too many ingredients, but suffice to say Temple catered nicely to each region.“Chili is versatile, but you can’t throw everything in it,” he says. “Don’t want it to be intimidating.”First, the Big Easy.“I had to make sure I represent the culture right, being from New Orleans,” he says. “Nobody wants to eat shrimp with their chili, they don’t go together. So what to do?”Temple quickly came up with an answer: red beans. Add in some onions, celery and bell peppers, sausage Jonah Williams Jersey , creole seasoning, a few other items and, voila.“I was thoroughly impressed with it,” Temple says. “Friends said that is rolling.”So he rolled on to LA.“The fun thing about Los Angeles is it’s such a large melting pot, so you don’t know which culture to pull from to represent the area,” he explains. “I came across a Felipe’s restaurant known for their chili, they do annual giveaways. So we paid homage to the Latin culture.”Which meant a touch of cilantro and some jalapenos.Next stop, Kansas City, renowned for its barbecue. As in his LA chili, no beans for this creation.“My wife is from Kansas City and we went on a barbecue tour of about eight spots recently, so I knew I wanted to play with the burnt ends,” Temple says. “That is what they do well and people wait on line for.”This recipe included the flavor of a Kansas City barbecue sauce, which Temple says is “spicier and bolder than I expected. I am used to more of the sweeter side of barbecue. I was impressed with the tang.”He wanted the smokiness of the burnt ends to blend in, but urges folks to mix the meat into this dish, not to simply put the burnt ends on top and chow down.Finally, he tackled New England, knowing that, like in New Orleans, clams or lobster wouldn’t quite work.“Boston baked beans,” he exclaims. “That’s a savory sweet payoff, and because you can use a variety of baked beans http://www.bengalscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-drew-sample-jersey , I can imagine you will get a lot of different flavors with it.”Temple recently gave cooking lessons to Vikings star receiver Adam Thielen. Indeed, the dance contest emanates from some of Thielen and his teammates’ touchdown celebrations. From now through Super Bowl Sunday on Feb. 3, 2019, fans can submit their best touchdown dance via social media by tagging @HormelChili on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter.Temple and Thielen created a Minnesota chili.“I told Adam that I am the chef, so this is my side of the field,” Temple says with a hearty laugh. “But when I have an engagement with whomever I am cooking with, I want him to throw out some ideas and we bounce them back and forth — especially with people who do not get a chance to cook too many times.”That would be Thielen, who had 113 receptions for 1,373 yards and nine touchdowns this season. Thielen attended the game last year in Minneapolis, but this time will be at home with his wife and two children.On the menu? Well, chili, of course.“Since I’m from Minnesota, I thought chili and tots would be perfect together,” he says, “and Chef Kenneth said, ‘We can add some creole seasoning on the tots and you pour the chili dip on top.’ The combo came out perfect!” Madison Bumgarner isn’t easily impressed in pregame warmups.
Thursday night was different.
”I don’t put a lot of stock into the bullpen before the game, but today I could tell that the stuff was picking up a little,” the 2014 World Series MVP said.
Bumgarner pitched eight innings of three-hit ball for his first win this season, Mark Melancon earned his first save in a year and the San Francisco Giants beat the San Diego Padres 3-0.
”It was the Madison we know Germaine Pratt Jersey ,” Giants manager Bruce Bochy said.
San Francisco won for the fourth time in five games and sent the last-place Padres to their fifth straight loss.
Bumgarner (1-2) struck out eight and walked two in his best start since coming off the disabled list. He also drove in the first run with a sacrifice fly.
”It was the type of game we’ve seen so many times from him,” Bochy said. ”We needed it because their guy pitched well, too.”
Bumgarner outdueled Tyson Ross (5-5), who gave up one run and four hits in seven innings. Ross struck out three and walked three.
”This is what you want to do as a pitcher, to go toe-to-toe against a guy,” he said. ”You just have to give your team a chance to win. He was little bit better tonight.”
Bumgarner began the season on the DL with a broken pinkie on his pitching hand sustained in his final spring training start when he was hit by a line drive. The ace left-hander was 0-2 with a 4.67 ERA in three previous outings since being reinstated.
Bumgarner’s sacrifice fly scored Pablo Sandoval in the fifth. Sandoval singled leading off the inning and Joe Panik followed with a double.
It was the fourth time in his career Bumgarner made a scoreless start and had the game-winning RBI, tying Stephen Strasburg and Fernando Valenzuela for the most such games by any pitcher in the last 40 years, according to STATS.
The Padres’ best scoring chance came in the fifth, when Jose Pirela was thrown out at home trying to score from second on Manuel Margot’s one-out double to deep right field. Giants catcher Buster Posey tagged out Pirela after a perfect relay from Andrew McCutchen and Panik.
”We had one chance offensively and we ran through a stop sign, which took away that one opportunity,” Padres manager Andy Green said.
Melancon, who started the season on the DL with a right elbow flexor strain, pitched the ninth for his first save since June 20, 2017.
Bumgarner was winless in his six previous starts against the Padres. He was 0-4 with a 4.73 ERA during that stretch.
