Okay party people.

I’ve spent countless hours scouring the web this week for what I think are some of the *best* recipes for football season. Some are from me… some are from my internet friends… and some are from people I creepily stalk. Most of these recipes can work regardless if it’s just you, yourself and you, you and a friend, you and your family of four, or you and your party of 20. Just adjust accordingly. Many of us have the same taste buds, some of us don’t. Feel free to link your favorites in the comments and tell me what YOU think the best football food is.

You know how much I love to overwhelm you.
