Yes sports fans…this weekend marks the official start of football season!! From now until Superbowl XLIII on February 1st, the boys of the NFL will be pounding the pigskin for bragging rights to be THE best team. I love football season!! My favorite teams are actually playing each other on Sunday: The Chicago Bears and the Indianapolis Colts.
With football season comes the start of the tailgate season. Tailgating has been taken to a whole new level in the past few years. What started out as throwing some hotdogs on a grill and having a beer has manifested itself into the most serious of cooking occasions. Now there are gourmet meats and wine and fancy table clothes too!
I remember a long while ago there was a tv show on ABC (I think it was called the HOME Show). They showed a party set-up that was 2-die-4!! They took the fake grass that you buy at home improvement stores and crafted a mini-football field to use as the buffet table. There are so many themed items you can buy and make for football celebrations. Just look around from now until Superbowl and you’ll find all kinds of cute ideas.
So what a perfect opportunity to celebrate…the start of football season---and every weekend from now until Superbowl! You can do it simple or complex…for football fans or not…just have fun!! And throw a hotdog on the grill for me!!
