Ooooo weeeeee! What a week it’s been. Tensions are SUPER high in our country but we have to realize that life will and does go on. While we have all been glued to the TV looking at politics and ranting (or scrolling through rants) on social media I’d like to clue you in on a few sportsy things that have happened. I think we can all use a little light-hearted relief, wouldn’t you say? Here are a few things that happened somewhere between the last few debates and election day that your sports lover might have noticed, but may have escaped you.
For some of you the weather is about to start getting real nippy and I am low-key jealous of you. Just because the temperature changes doesn’t mean the grid iron game stops. So I put together this COZY game day style round up which I am actually pretty excited about adding these pieces to my winter wardrobe for the 2 weeks of cold we will experience in Houston around February. This is for sure the coziest style round up you ever did see!
Although wine is not the norm while watching football a good cocktail can be a great way to add a little somethin’ somethin’ to an other-wise, frat boy, bro-ed out tailgate party. So, I added a little “flair” if you will to your standard margarita. The Champagne Margarita is the perfect tailgate upgrade that is the marriage of “I’m here for the football” and “I am here to socialize”.
A person can eat hot dogs from a card table so many weekends in a row without getting burt out! For college football fans 12 weeks is a long time to have the same old boring tailgate party! From the tailgate parties that I have been to, I have gleaned a few tips for tailgating that every tailgate party hostess should know.
I have to admit, I am a sucker for sweets! Not only is eating (and drinking) them my weakness, but I also love making them. Sometimes when I am planning game day food I have to remind myself to have a menu that includes savory snacks too! Last year for a Super Bowl watch party at my friend’s house I was in charge of bringing the sweets (obviously). Among the three options the game day recipe that I am sharing with you today was the crowd favorite. These Football Whoopie Pies are sure to be a “fan favorite” with for your next watch party too, trust me!
