Hallelujah football season is upon us!!! That means it’s time for me to make an Ultimate Game Day Tailgate Food List! Game week is officially here and I am so ready! It is by far my favorite “season” and I look forward to it all year long! Getting to tailgate with friends and family, eat delicious food, and attending my favorite team playing my favorite sport is THE BEST! Just sitting here writing this makes me so excited about the next 12 weeks. I know several of you would rather just watch football games on TV, but for me it’s all about getting in that stadium where I can even smell the sweat!
Growing up with a football loving family meant lots of Saturdays tailgating before and after the games. So, the food situation at these games is always a big topic! Gotta feed everyone who may even think of walking by, ya know? Heaven forbid us not be able to feed a friend…or a stranger! Us Southern ladies know better than to not have anything to offer our guests haha!
A few years ago I decided to take on the task of organizing the food for our tailgates. We attend every Razorback home game, which means we have 6 or 7 tailgates per season. That doesn’t seem like too much until you start to think about eating the same BBQ sandwiches for 7 out of 12 weekends straight. NO THANKS! So how do I change up what we have to eat and not completely go nuts trying to find different ideas each week? I started planning (because I do love a good plan) and initiating my time management skills into a Tailgate Season Food Plan!
