If Girls Ruled the Tailgate

First of all, I apologize in advance for bombarding you with what you are about to see. After my post yesterday on tailgating, you ladies really got the wheels turning for pulling together our menu for next week and for future tailgates to come. 

As a thank you to my awesome readers {I love ya I really do!} I wanted to feature some of their ideas they tossed my way. I really do appreciate each and every comment, but I am not the best at responding to emails and whatnot. However, I want to say "thank you" to everyone who reads this little blog and sends comments my way! 

Prepare yourselves....if we all got together...this would be our tailgate y'all: 

Mrs. Easton from Life of an Easton Wife recommended pretzel bread and beer cheese. I mean, that is a winning combination, is it not? As a twist on this idea, I have been wanting to make pretzel bites for quite some time now. I think it's time I give it a go. I have always been a sucker for Auntie Annes in the mall. Who's with me?!

Laura from Our Life in the Queen City said one of her favorite things to snack on are these Ham and Cheese Sliders. Ham and cheese sliders are one of those things I will just pick up at a tailgate because they look so good and are irresistible.

April from A. Liz Adventures knows how to make her hubby happy with Buffalo Chicken Dip. This recipe is the one I go by and the bowl is usually empty and devoured by the end of the party. I haven't made this one in a while so I'm thinking its a must!

Whitney from Drab to Fab Design shared that one of her favorites is Velveeta dip {also one of my all times faves}. Here is an easy version that looks delish!

And since we are on the "dip" subject, Megan from Fried Green Pickles  and I would get along great, we both are huge fans of any and all dips. Seriously though, if all my meals were dips I would be happy.
Cotton from Cottons Pickins brings boiled peanuts and some good ol' beer to a tailgate. Sounds like every mans dream, right? 

I'm glad everyone kept it real and told me their favorite indulgences for this fun season upon us. Of course, we can throw in some celery, carrots and cucumbers to keep things under control.

Thanks again to everyone who commented yesterday!
{I only mentioned those who left specific food comments, but I appreciate every other comment just as much!!!}

Is it time yet? I have a feeling the next week is going to go by pretty slow...

I CANNOT wait for tailgate food! A few of my favs are sausage balls (of course) and some little pulled pork sandwiches!

Whitney @ Drab to Fab Design said...

Ummm YUM!!! All those look so good! I seriously could indulge in some pretzel bites right now!

I love that ham and cheese slider recipe. I usually add a bit of brown sugar to the sauce that you pour over the sandwiches. I like that it gives a little bit of sweetness to the sandwiches.

April of A. Liz Adventures said...

Okay, when can we have our girls only tailgate? I'm loving the food lineup!

Amanda said...

Yummmm! To all of the above. I want to have a tailgate now lol.

Mrs. Easton said...
