Bloody Mary in my school colors? Yes, please!




Leave it to Martha (Martha Stewart Living August 2011) to come up with recipes for Bloody Marys, a tailgate classic, in various colors. The various colored tomatoes used in these are actually in season during the first few weeks of football season.  Maybe one of these fits in with your colors!


















Brilliant for tailgates! Stays colder longer because it's somewhat frozen.










Postscript: See that fantastic garnish above...the lemon slice and pickled okra one?  He is very cute!  Pickled okra is a staple at my house and at my tailgate.  I buy delicious pickled okra in a giant jar at the warehouse club.  I pickled okra once and the $3.88 jar is much tastier and much easier.  But because of that one batch of pickled okra I made, I can't convince one of my husband's co-workers that I don't make the okra he loves that we always have at our house.  Oh, well!  Go to your "club" (that would be warehouse club...not country club..hee hee) and get some yourself.  You can impress your guests by telling them they are yours (they ARE yours. you paid good money for them, didn't you?) or that they're from the "club".

Happy Gameday

Snack on the Stadium

With bowl week upon us, I felt it "important" to re-publish October's Snack Stadiums post.  Snack Stadiums strike me as the uber-appropriate addition to a holiday gameday party.  Whip one up in the next couple weeks or start planning for a Super Bowl Snack Stadium.  Enjoy!


You are going to love this gallery of football stadiums made of  enough food for the entire party.  Holy Taco gives you the instructions to  create this beauty, complete with the dip field.  Click here for the instructions.



Now this is the time I should let you know that there is an entire website  dedicated to these pieces of edible art/architecture/engineering feat.   www.snackadium.com.  I am not making this up!   Here's what you'll see over there:



The Old Try

The regular season is over and it's time to start thinking about the season (aka bowl season).  Don't forget to check out past Gameday Style posts for more great gift ideas.
First up, is The Old Try.  I purchased this print a few months ago for my home that's trying hard to raise two gentlemen...

The Old Try has some Gameday Style in a subtle, fun and classy way.  Subtle, because you may not know what some of these designs are referring to, unless you're a devoted fan of one of these Southern schools.
