Football season has started with a huge win by my Baylor Bears and we are excited about A&M's game on Sunday! Fall is officially here and I am so looking forward to cooler weather, pumpkin recipes, hunting, and spending this season celebrating my brother and soon to be sister in law!
If you don't live in Texas, you really might not understand how football is king in our state. Believe me, baseball is America's past time and my personal favorite sport but football is THE Texas sport. It is indoctrinated into boys heads when they are young to love football, families spend time around the TV or traveling to root for their favorite college team and little girls anticipate being cheerleaders one day. I have to admit, cheering along the sidelines of my high school Alma Mater was something I will never forget! A literal experience of a lifetime!
Somehow the whole 7th grade football team has ended up in my 8th period (that is a bit of an exaggeration, but it feels like it!) . Imagine loud, burly, HUGE boys barreling into my room talking about practicing in the Texas heat in full pads. When they don't settle down. . . the ultimate threat is, "Do you want me to call your coach?" But, truth be told, I absolutely ADORE them. . . and they know it! :-)
I have posted multiple "football" food ideas on Elizabeth Ann's Recipe Box and guest blogged on Holy Turf numerous times, but I had to add another one today! The fall is busy. . . school has started up and towards the end of football season Thanksgiving and Christmas are on your mind. So many times you don't have as much time as you would like to give to thinking about food for football parties at your house. . . So here you go. . . Pigs in a Blanket. . . addicting, easy, and takes all of 1 minute to prepare!
I hope you have a wonderful Labor Day, whether you are soaking up the sun, hunting, or watching football!
