Are you ready for some football? I’m more about the game day foods these days, but, hey, I’m good.
Life-long Football Fan
I’ve been a football fan for as long as I can remember. I was a cheerleader from the time I was in first grade all the way through to high school. I well remember my very first cheerleading outfit, those little black and white saddle shoes and blue and white pompoms.
After all these years of being a fan, I actually understand the game of football. My three brothers all played football in high school and one of them was the star quarterback.
As a cheerleader and a fan, I never missed a game. And I won’t even go into detail about my teenage crush on a certain football player at my high school. 🙂
Nowadays, when it comes to football, we are a house divided. This past Sunday, my future son-in-law was cheering for his favorite team (not mine) and they were leading the entire game until the very end and the kicker missed the field goal! I do believe I saw tears in his eyes! Yes, we take football seriously around here.
We also take football food seriously. Everything I serve has to taste delicious, but I’m not about to spend the day in the kitchen missing all the action.
Over the years, I’ve nailed down the football food necessities and that includes pizza and crunchy veggies and dip. I also have a few tricks up the sleeve that keeps me in on the action and away from too much food prep.
I order pizza. And I also grab an Edwards Pie (so good for dessert), and pre-made spinach artichoke dip and white bean dip from Walmart.

Helpful Hint: I like it hot, but if you don’t like a lot of heat, dice the peppers and reduce the amount to 1/4 cup.
