Whoa! 11:00 kickoff means you better load the car the night before or you're not making it to the stadium in time to make your tailgating prep worth your while. This particular tailgate may call for coffee, but September 3 outside is much too warm for coffee. In our case it was much too stifling for the cheese on my menu or for taking many photos. I wish I had a photo...the cheese melted into a heap. You would think I would be experienced enough to avoid this, but the intense heat was a bit of a surprise (hottest game of my life, fry an egg on the metal bleacher kind of heat). And I have to admit, since I'm a single girl on Gameday (my husband is not available), pre 11:30 kickoff tailgates usually have been, "let's grab a snack and drink from the back of the car". But, hey, it was our first game so we had to get out the candelabra!

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.
