Gameday in Tuscaloosa

If you haven't heard already, there's a football game that will be played Saturday night in Tuscaloosa, Alabama that is gaining a bit of attention.  #1 LSU is playing at #2 Alabama, the result of which will have major implications in who walks away with the National Championship.  As you can guess, gameday hosts in Alabama are gearing up for a big weekend.  Gameday Style was able to get some insider information on one tailgate, hosted by none other than the Test Kitchen Director at Southern Living magazine, Rebecca Gordon.  

Yes, ma'am...from testing recipes day in and day out for the magazine content of Southern Living, this gal knows a hundred things or two about good food.  Rebecca also knows a lot about being a fan of the Alabama Crimson Tide (she even keeps her season tickets in her safe deposit box as you can read it!).  So much a Bama fan, that she holds her own blog, TideFan Fare, and has created a darling tailgate tote, which you can catch in her second post below. 

On TideFan Fare this week Rebecca shared her menu plans for Saturday's big tailgate, which you can see below, but you should go cruise through and check out some of her other wonderful past posts on celebrating with gameday style:


Only in the South do you place regular season football tickets in your safe deposit box. Just don't forget to retrieve them before Saturday's kick-off!

Literally, get ready to devour LSU with these Louisiana inspired snackies.

Muffuletta Dip:

Tailgate Tip: Prepare Friday night. Pack in an icy cooler before hitting the road.

Chicken-and-Sausage Gumbo:

Tailgate Tip: Plan to plug in on the quad. Your crock pot, that is. Serve in Styrofoam cups with saltine crackers.

Bananas Foster Upside-Down Cake:

Tailgate Tip: Cut cake into bite-size cubes and place into Tupperware containers for goodies on the go. Serve with toothpicks for easy eats. The ULTIMATE pick up food!

Plain Chicken Every Football Friday

Steph from the blog,  Plain Chicken , happens to have some phenomenal looking recipes and happens to be a football fan.  A GREAT football fan.  I know this because she wrote this: As Andy Williams says, “It's the most wonderful time of the year!” No, I'm not talking about Christmas. I'm talking about College Football season!!! It is finally here! I sense some major excitement in her voice about football season.  Not to mention her weekly menu list simply says "Tailgating" for Saturday's dinner.   Plain Chicken  was featured just yesterday on the engaging  New York Times' college football blog, The Quad ,  with Steph's recipe for these divine looking  Cheddar Bacon Ranch Pulls .
