Fall is HERE! That means bon fires, cozy sweaters, comfort food and crisp autumn air. Know what else it means? FOOTBALL! Who’s excited for some football? I know I am, well I know I really should be a little more upfront. I am ready for some football food! I adore dips, appetizers and game food. Sunday afternoons can be full of nothing but snacks in my opinion and I’d be one happy girl. The actually football game? Well that’s debatable.
I’ll be honest. Food is more my thing. Sure I will watch football but I’m not some fantasy football following junkie. I’m always loyal to my Minnesota Vikings no matter how horrible they play, which trust me is REAL horrible most of the time. This year there might be hope but in true fashion they’ll screw it up some how. This people, I am used too. Minnesotans are not known for their GREAT athletic teams. It’s just a fact of life.
This year the Vikes are building a new stadium, which means their old one has been torn down and they are playing outdoors at the University of Minnesota’s football field. Yes, outdoors in Minnesota. I call them crazy, nuts, off their rocker etc. They must have really, really wanted a new stadium to agree to that. I would have said heck no and stayed indoors where they heat was available.
With that being said I’m attending an outdoor game to say I did it. It’s in early October and I’m praying to the heavens above that I’m not crazy and it’s not a terribly cold, windy, miserable day. It’s Minnesota and even though it’s only October one never knows. So say a few prayers for me ok? I’m not a cold weather, outdoors type of girl. Nope, not at all.
When football season roles around do you get excited for the actually football game or are you just excited to eat your way through the appetizer buffet like me? Is your thing dips like this Cheesy Corn Dip or something with a bite? Maybe you’d rather have some sweet snacks like Sweet & Salty Cashew Chex Mix with a Green Beer? Personally I love, love, love these Ranch Pretzels. If you see me with them you might have to throw a few elbows to get them away from my death grip.
If you haven’t concluded I’m always up for a “Homegating” event to show support for my Vikes and it’s always full of tons of yummy food. Like any event at my house would go down without amazing food! There never seems to be a lack of it.
