FOODball – game day eats

Last Saturday night we went to play B.I.N.G.O.

Jason and I met my sister, her husband and other friends for a fun night of numbers and daubers. I didn’t win anything this time, and we all still had fun. One of our friends wasn’t able to make it, and she later explained she was sitting out in the cold the night before, at her sons high school football game, and was feeling under the weather.

My first thought was to suggest she show up this Friday with a thermos full of hot soup. (Okay, if I’m being honest, I actually suggested hot soup or hot toddy – either way).

Then I started thinking of what I would bring to a football game these days. Leave it to a food writer to make a culinary experience out of any event…

I’ve gathered my favorite recipes from my own archive and that of some of my friends… these recipes are things I would bring to a football game on television at someones house, or what I would make at our place. We are football fans here, and I love a good tailgate or television viewing spread of food.
