Pull Up A Chair…

YouTube: REM sings "Furry, Happy Monsters" on Sesame Street 

With election day fast approaching, I’ve started thinking about election night. It’s likely to be a very late one at my house — and a lot of yours as well, I’d suspect.

I’m contemplating an election night supper that doesn’t require a huge amount of hand-on work for me, but feeds my family some food that’s at least somewhat healthy. And that can sit out a bit and not get gross.

While I’ve been poking around through my cookbooks and some online sites I like, I’ve found a trove of possibilities that I thought I’d share. And then maybe we can spend a little time talking plans for election night — and popcorn toppings. Pull up a chair…
