My hubby is obsessed with football. And I HATE IT. And I’m not a good enough wife to even sit there and pretend like I’m having fun. BUT, now I don’t have to…I can just sit and faceplant into ALL THE FOOD EVER. Pinned!
WHAT. A. Round-up! :) Those nachos look out of this world delicious!

I am definitely saving this for this football season. I have never been a fan before but I need to start watching games because I am participating in a fantasy league for the first time…yikes! These recipes will be my motivation to get into it ;)

MMM, an awesome list as always! Gonna have to show my husband this list. We just made the steak fajitas this weekend (omitted the beer bc we were drinking that instead, oops, lol), but we actually put the flank steak on our smoker/grill and put the fajita veggies in a foil pack on the grill also….turned out awesome!! Thanks for all the awesome recipes as always!
I was reading some of these aloud to my hubby last night, and he goes ‘YES TO ALL OF THEM’ haha…looks like I know how my Sundays will be spent! What a great list :)
Mouthwatering photographs. You rock! Your recipes rock! What a discovery! I liked this recipe list so much I printed out this page and handed it out to just about everyone in my neighborhood that showed up today.
your butternut squash goat cheese dip is one of the most delicious things i’ve ever made – i am completely obsessed with it! can’t wait for cooler temps so i can make it all the time. i’m trying the french onion one next… it’s been on my radar since you originally posted it. SO GOOD
Well what do you know, there were other football appropriate foods besides the home-made zucchini chips. I’m sharing this to my wifey this instant. The guys are coming tomorrow and we need to prepare something different.
Greetings from UK and thanks for sharing this extensive list!
