Gameday Fashion: College Colors Day 2014

So many reasons I'm excited right now. It's a 3 day weekend. College football returned last night! That means we are making our trek up to Norman this afternoon for the first OU home game and tailgate of the season! I'm having lunch with Lauren today at my favorite restaurant. Check out her blog Pretty Pieces. And I'm proudly wearing my orange and blue today to celebrate the annual College Colors Day .

Hope you all are wearing your college colors today too. Here are some great orange and blue options for my Gator girls!

Tailgate Recipes: Hawaiian Ham and Cheese Sammies

20 small Hawaiian sweet rolls, cut in half crosswise
1 pound deli black forest ham, sliced
20 slices provolone cheese
8-oz. container spreadable cream cheese
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
1 tablespoon yellow mustard
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons dried minced onions
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons poppy seeds (I would eliminate these)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9x13 baking dish gameday kickasserole dish with cooking spray. Line the bottom of the pan with the bottom halves of the sweet rolls. Top with the ham, then the provolone cheese slices. Spread the cream cheese onto the bottoms of the sweet roll tops and place them in a layer on top of the cheese. In a medium bowl, combine the butter, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, onions and Parmesan cheese. Mix well and pour evenly over tops of the sandwiches. Cover with aluminum foil and bake in the preheated oven for 25 minutes, or until warmed through. Cut at the seams with a knife and serve warm!

Gameday Fashion: Ammunition Jewelry

Growing up with a big-time hippy for a mom, I'm very familiar with quartz crystals. She had them spread all around the house. At the time, I couldn't get into the idea behind them, but now looking back I do think they had a calming effect on our household. But you guys aren't here to read about my childhood....let's talk gameday jewelry!

Apple and Jayme are the team behind Ammunition Jewelry. (We share a love for Mi Cocina.) They are two Texas Aggies, living in LA, creating unique bullet encased necklaces. The necklaces are created with recycled bullet shells and raw gemstones. What's even better, is that a portion of each online purchase is donated to Wounded Warrior Project. Very cool!

Gameday Fashion: State Traditions

State Traditions has a unique piece of the gameday market. They sell apparel, housewares and products that feature a prominent State outline with different school colors. Though their products do not have team logos associated with various schools, there will be no doubt who your allegiance is with. For example, if you are an University of Florida fan, there are numerous orange and blue products which feature the State of Florida outline. I'm sure you all get the gist. It's a pretty savvy way to get around licensing.

I like the understated nature of their products. I like that you can support your home State or your team without being blatant about it. They make it very easy to shop too, just click on your State and the plethora of items comes up.
