Football Season is Upon Us! What are you Making for the Big Game?

Last weekend was the first official full weekend of college football.  As I have stated in prior posts, we worship the round orange ball that makes its appearance in the near future.  

Being Kentucky Wildcat fans we still watch them play football and cheer for their victory each and every week.  Brooks says that the only reason they created football was to give us a reason to sit around, drink bourbon, and talk about basketball season!

Whatever the reason you watch, or team you cheer for, one thing is universal: GAME DAY FOOD!

Game Day Round Up | Take Two Tapas

We love to tailgate and gather in groups to chow down and cheer on our teams, so there must always be lots of good food around!  I have a few recipes of my own that I love for game day, but I have asked a few of my fellow bloggers for theirs!  

Here is a round-up of those recipes.  This collection of appetizers and tapas will be certain to please any discerning tailgater!  I hope you enjoy them!

Everyone loves jalapeno poppers and Leia from Eat It and Say Yum is wrapping them up in a handy Chicken Jalapeno Popper Eggroll.  What a genius way to speed the jalapeno poppers getting into your mouth!

A party is not complete without some stuffed mushrooms!  Kat and Melinda from Homemade Interest are stuffing their Mushrooms with Chorizo and Cheese.  My husband will drool at the very thought!

The round-up wouldn’t be complete without some chicken wings so here is a recipe for my Crispy Green Herb Chicken Wings.  They are baked and tossed with fresh chopped herbs!
