Round 1: Baby Back Ribs - After seeing the expected taken off the board (Beer with the 1st pick, and Steak with the 2nd) I opted to quickly take the second best meat available. Last year, I opted to skip drafting a meat in round one and will never make the mistake again, as I was left with only Beefalo and Slim Jims as my 1st and 2nd meat by the time I got around to drafting them. Obviously, it was a very long season.
Round 2: Mashed Potatoes. I toyed with the idea of taking Kung Pao Chicken here, knowing what a premium the meat position is (pork chops were drafted already or I would have taken them) However, with Baked Potato (1.9), Potatoes Au Gratin (1.11), and French Fries (2.1) already off the board, there was an obvious run on starch, and I did not want to get stuck with a Rice Pilaf or an Olive Bread as my starch.
Round 3: Hard Cider: Probably waited too long to draft a drink. With Beer (1.1), Scotch (1.5), Red Wine (2.3) and Margaritas (3.2) all gone at this point, I opted to go with Hard Cider. This, I believe, is an undervalued sleeper pick. I may regret not taking Gin Martini here – but I sometimes you just have to go with your gut. Hard Cider will certainly perform better than the other options still available (White wine, Mexican Coke, Vodka tonic)
Round 4: Caesar Salad: Was really hoping to get broccoli here, but the owner just in front of me took it (don’t you hate that!) I considered Green Beans or Snap Peas, but decided to go with the consistent performer, very safe pick, good vegetable value in round 4.
Round five coming up – I am either going with my second meat (duck is still available, as is Dried Genoa Salami) but run the risk of missing out on any decent desert if I wait any longer (Cheesecake (4.5) and Apple Pie (4.7) are gone, naturally. So is, Boston Cream Pie (3.2), but that guy is such a homer, took it waaaaay too early.
What do you all think? How am I doing so far? What should I take in round five?

weige:I find I can usually get salted butter really late, like in the 10th round, saves me a roster spot.
