|To start each season off right we must place our scripted "A" on the door for good luck!|
Thad and I figured out the other day that this is our 5th football season we have spent together and in that time we have started some game day traditions that are pretty important to us. We both love tradition, good food and the Tide, so that basically makes a perfect combo for a perfect game day.
We recently moved from Tuscaloosa (Home of the Tide) to Trussville, a suburb of Birmingham. Since we no longer are in the center of all the action, we need to work a little harder to create a great game day atmosphere in our home. Usually mid-week we start talking about what we are going to make for game day and when I say "we", I mean Thad puts in his request and I make it. So we plan out our menu and enjoy the sounds of football playing on the TV and the smell of good food cooking in the air. I thought we would share with you a typical game day at the Foresters and show you how we Roll Tide Roll.........
|So to start off with we had pigs in a blanket and they were the perfect appetizer for a football game|
|After the appetizer of pigs in a blanket we had some yummy homemade chili which I had cooked in the a crock-pot and the let all flavors marinate for several hours|
|Then Thad requested I make one of his favorite chocolate chip cookies.........New York Times Chocolate Chip Cookies|
