Social Fabric Theme of the Week: Tailgating and Homegating Party Ideas
It’s football season, and that begs the question, who throws the best parties? The folks tailgating away in the stadium parking lot, or those at home, big t.v. showcasing the game, and the house filled with the delicious smells of homegating? Whether you prefer to get all bundled up and cheer in the stands, or root for your favorite team from the comfort of your own home, one thing’s for sure…the food had better be good! We went into the Social Fabric communities and asked for some tips for food that all of the fans will love, regardless of the team they’re rooting for, and we got some great advice!
Kristin from Mama Luvs Books suggests dips for homegating. She says that her family is into any flavor of pretzel chips with hummus right now. Sounds yummy!
The Creative Princess’ Brandi shared a great recipe for Potato Skins. They’re easy to make, and there’s bacon. Seriously, does it get better than that?
Patricia from Frugal Family Tree encourages us not to forget the crowd favorites, pizza, wings and meatballs. Hey, they’ve sustained us for years, right? Why mess with a good thing?
Laura, who also writes at Frugal Family Tree, is a big SF 49ers fan (we won’t hold that against her!), and she loves to serve clam chowder in a bread bowl in homage to tradition in her team’s region.
Rachel from Bubbly Nature Creations makes homegating super creative with her football styled food. Her super cute football pizzas, and Boston Cream Pie minis look almost to good to eat. But not quite, yum!
Finally, just because you’re tailgating, it doesn’t mean that you can only eat grilled meats and salty snacks. Adriana from Adriana’s Best Recipes shares her recipe for Pickled Veggies Delight that travels well and is perfect for tailgating!
This is a great start, but we have a whole season of tailgating and homegating ahead of us! Do you have any recipes to share? Leave a link in the comments and we’ll check them out!
