Hello again!

Well, Gameday Style is back!  I thought it best to take a bit of a break from writing to take care of matters near and family.  We have changed jobs-- as many college coaches do every year-- so the Gameday Style hiatus not only came during a great time during the off-season, but during the time we made the move to our new city where our coach has been working since January.  We are getting settled in, remodeling an old home close to the stadium so it will be ready in time for kickoff at our new school on September 1.  I missed out on filling y'all in on Spring Game happenings...last weekend wrapped up spring football at all schools all over the country.  We will be rounding into late spring and summer, which means we have to at least have a little thought of our fall fashion, travel and party plans for next season.  And I, along with the other coaches wives all over the country who have moved, have to change the colors of our wardrobes.  

 I really enjoy hearing from dedicated readers of the blog about fun things you see or want to hear about.  If you have some great party items, ideas, recipes, fashion resources or anything that has gameday style, please email me at gamedaystyle@yahoo (I purposefully left the .com off to prevent spam finders from finding my email, but please include the .com at the end so it gets to me).
Don't forget your friends that are making and/or selling creative items for gameday so that I can share with fans of stylish gamedays.   Best of all, let me know what stylish things you'd like to find for gameday.

Enjoy the beautiful spring weather...we'll talk soon!

Save that Turkey! It's Gumbo time...

Life is so simple and delicious when you follow a formula such as this. Get your turkey going for gumbo while cleaning up after the feast on Thursday evening and you'll be all ready for Saturday and/or Sunday's tailgating or football-on-TV watching.   Garden and Gun tells us how. from Garden and Gun  magazine Day-After Gumbo Turn your Thursday bird into a Friday  Saturday feast If the day after Thanksgiving is your favorite food day of the year, then Justin Devillier, of  La Petite Grocery  in New Orleans, is your kind of chef. “Although leftovers ‘as is’ are good, turning them into another celebratory meal keeps the holiday eat fest going at my house,” he says. On Thanksgiving night, the chef covers the carved turkey carcass with water, and as the family party winds down, the roasted bones simmer away, forming a rich stock. The next morning, he adds aromatics and andouille, and stirs in a nice dark roux. “I like mine as dark as I can get it without burning it,” he
