Tailgate Ready



I have spent the past couple days getting prepared for our tailgate and we are ready to have some fun. College football season, with its rivalries, school colors and beautiful fall days on a college campus, is something to look forward to each year. I have been busy compiling tablecloths, cups, serving dishes - all my green and white items, that make our tailgate festive.

I have been to the grocery store three times and will be making my Best Tailgate Dip as well as BBQ Chicken Sliders. To make the sliders, I simply bake boneless chicken breasts, shred and mix with Sweet Baby Rays BBQ sauce. I provide slider buns for my tailgate friends to make their own sandwiches. For a sweet tailgate treat, I will also be taking my S'more Brownies. Our friends will bring even more food and our table will be full with a delicious tailgate feast.

We will have time to relax, eat and have a cocktail or two before game time and will enjoy our time on campus. There is a special atmosphere at the first game, where the season stretches out with possibility. I look forward to walking into the stadium and hearing the fight song - go green!

And the best part - we get to see this girl :-)

Have a wonderful Labor Day weekend!
