Hi guys!

I’m bringing back a super old recipe today. Because, for some reason, it was the most popular recipe on my blog for New Years Eve and New Years Day even though the only photo it had was small and horizontal and pretty terrible.

But seeing everyone else make it made me want to make it again.

I mean, I’d named it my number 1 most favorite recipe in my 2011 wrap up post and then I never made it again.

Hi guys! Are you ready to start talking football watching snacks?

Homegating snacks?

Yeah?

This is my favorite favorite favorite time of year for food.

Give me all the cheesy dips, all the tiny hot dogs wrapped in crescent rolls, and a slow cooker full of meatballs in a  sweet sticky sauce.

Plus, hosting friends is always fun, even if all your friends have terrible taste of football.

Ahem.

Slow Cooker Pork and Butternut Squash Stew - a bowl of comfort! Quickly brown the pork and then toss everything in the slow cooker!

Okay guys, real talk.

I broke the driver’s side window of my car.

“How’d you manage that one, Amanda?”

Well, it’s a Wrangler so the windows unzip and the zipper broke.

Okay, fine, I broke both zippers. Which is okay most of the time since I normally have at least the back windows off anyway. But y’all, it’s cold in the mornings and at night in central Texas now. I was shivering on my way back from Austin last week.

An hour and a half at 75 MPH with the window down at 10 pm?

It was cold.

It’s that time of year!

Time to transition from Thursday margarita posts to Thursday football snack posts! Wooo! I know we have a few weeks left before football actually starts but I cannot wait any longer!

I have decided, after months of deliberation, that I am going to become the world’s biggest Broncos fan. I know, that sounds crazy.

But since I’ve also decided that I’m never leaving Colorado, I might as well be one of those people walking around in a Broncos jersey every Sunday. Yeah, I already bought one. I bought one for all the kids, too. And I guarantee the dogs will both have one before the season starts. We are all in.

As much as I love the games, my number one favorite thing about football will always be the food. Why is food such an important part of football? Who knows. But for whatever reason, football season gives you an excuse to snack from Thursday night to Monday night.

And I like any excuse to have snacks for every meal.
