Tailgate Toys: Artic Cove Misting Fan






Here's a funny/interesting story for you guys. My full time job is a city planner. I share a suite in City Hall with the tourism and sports departments. The other day I walked into their supply closet and I saw 5 Artic Cove Misting Fan boxes stacked on top of one another. The tourism department had purchased the misting fans for a baseball tournament the city hosted.

I immediately thought to myself, what a great product and how perfect they would be for tailgating. So, then of course I had to share with all of you guys! If you want a smaller size version of the fan, they also have Personal Misting Bottles too.

Hope you all are staying cool this summer. It's way, way too hot here in Dallas. At least we only have 35 days left until College Football starts again. Yippee!

Tailgate Toys: Cooler, Table and Chairs All-In-One


I think the concept of this tailgating table is great! It would be really nice if more companies streamlined the tailgating process. More all-in-one products or products that had a dual purpose. I found this cooler, table and chairs combo on Amazon.

Baseball Opening Day 2016





Well, just color me jealous! All of my friends are at the Rangers Opening Day game and I'm stuck here at the office. Wah wah. Oh, well, at least I can look at the pretty pictures from the game and almost feel like I was there. Almost. 

Another way I'm keeping myself distracted is online shopping. 
I really like these baseball themed tee from Touchdown Tees. Very clever! 
They are offering you guys a 10% discount with code slugger10. 

Happy Opening Day!

Football Cheese Ball




Football Cheese Ball
 Cheddar Bacon Ranch Ball


Ingredients:
16 ounces softened cream cheese

⅛ cup dry Ranch Dressing mix
¼ cup chopped green onions
1 cup chopped pecans

Directions: In a bowl, mix cream cheese, cheddar cheese, bacon, ranch mix, and green onions. Place on plastic wrap and and form into a football shape.  I usually use these to help with the form. Roll cheese ball in pecans and refrigerate for 1-2 hours before serving. Add green onion as the stitches of the football.  Serve with crackers of your choice.



Super Bowl 50




Sunday, February 7, 5:30 PM on CBS
Levi's Stadium

Carolina Panthers
vs
Denver Broncos



How will you celebrate? Most of us will be homegating during the big game. It's a perfect reason to throw a party and whip up some really great recipes that are best served at home. 

One of my favorite tailgate related recipes I like to make for bigger occasions is a Cheddar Bacon Cheese Ball. I form it into the shape of a football and it makes a great appetizer.
