Cougar Kick-Off party and sale. As I mentioned in my last post, I am starting to get anxious for fall. A big part of that is my love of BYU Football. Adam and I are true blue football fans and have loved being season ticket holders for many years. Going to the Kick-Off got me even more excited. The excitement of the hundreds of fans attending was palpable. We were all decked out in blue, meeting athletes and taking pictures of Cosmo. Oh dear. September 4 can’t come soon enough.
If you remember correctly, I love tailgating. I love everything about it. Friends and fellow Cougars gathering, great food, fun music and just doing the crazy things we fans do.
I love baking for tailgates. I honestly think that was one of the things that got me into tailgating. If you are looking for some inspiration try some of these Cougar tailgate treat ideas from me. Since my birthday falls on the first game, I am considering throwing myself a tailgate birthday party. Sounds fun, right? Send me ideas.
One more thing, while perusing Deseret Book I came across this tailgating cookbook written by a BYU Alumna. It’s called the Brigham Young University Cougars Cookbook. It has some fun and cheeky recipes for tailgates and more. I think it would make a fun addition to my cookbook collection. The author, Jenny Stanger, evern wrote a book for those “up North.” You should check out her site too, it's got lots of great info, recipes and more.
