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”.
Although in Texas it is still hot and humid I am starting to see resemblance of what looks like it might be Fall. Despite what it might feel like I am rebelling against the weatherman and wearing my boots, dang it! In the spirit of this rebellion the fam and I decided to have some fall family fun at the pumpkin patch a few weekends ago and it was the perfect day for Camilla to run around for her first time at pumpkin patch.
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!
I recently got a new, more family friendly car, so I wanted to make sure that when it came to decorating my tailgate it would make my new car look good too. So off to the store I went and it wasn’t your typical craft store this time. This time I took to my local hardware store to create a SUPER easy DIY Tailgate Astroturf Banner and I think it turned out really great!
