We, as a society, focus too much on taste at the expense of texture.  I think this might be because we're scared of fat and fat gives things a better mouth feel.

I haven't tried provolone.  I have tried mozz, and the results were so gooey as to be borderline terrifying.  Now I add a sprinkling of shredded mozz to any white sauce I want to goop up.

Yeah I was thinking mozz but stumbled on the provolone.  My local grocer's quality (as in imported or local farm, not mass market) cheese stock is rotating, so you never really know what you'll find.  The good side is I'm always able to try new things.  The bad is I can rarely find a particularly good one a second time. 

I will say that particular mixture reheated fantastically well, without the separation you usually get reheating.

Anyone have any good superbowl foods? 

I took that Thai Red Curry and put it over my homemade meatballs, turned out really good. 

Also made some Chicken Satay with peanut sauce.

I think you have a point. The irony is that the fat is also more satisfying. I won't binge on dark chocolate candy the way I can on milk chocolate based candy bars.

* Random quote

I sit in my cubicle, here on the motherworld. When I die, they will put me in a box and dispose of it in the cold ground. And in all the million ages to come, I will never breathe, or laugh, or twitch again. So won't you run and play with me here among the teeming mass of humanity? The universe has spared us this moment.
