Sunday Night Football Family Tailgate Party

Sunday Night Football Family Tailgate Party

A few weeks ago I posted a story about Sunday nights being great family nights. The idea was to make Sunday Night Football a focal point for your family, and turn your TV room into a tailgate party.

It’s an “if you can’t beat’m, join’m, strategy.” Don’t let football cause for family members to retreat to different rooms. Use it as a catalyst for cohesiveness. Just because the football players are trying to tear each other apart, doesn’t mean you need to!

In my last post, I had suggested that you don’t need to be a super-fan to make this work.  It’s all of the stuff that surrounds the game that’s fun for the family.  Getting decked out in team colors and logos; side bets on who scores first, who fumbles first, etc., using stakes like chores or privileges.

But even without all these things, having your own “TV Room Tailgate Party” has one minimum requirement: awesome food! Last time we showed you how to make Chicken and Waffle Sandwiches. In the spirit of trying fun, new recipes each week, the folks at Farm Rich are providing some awesome, Game Day Snack Hacks all season long.  Check out www.farmrich.com/gameday so you can keep your team well-nourished for the game.

Here’s this week’s recipe:

    these recipes looks so good but so dangerous! football food is always indulgent and bite size so overeating is hard to avoid, but its only once a week right!?

  2. Crystal says:

    Those quesadillas are insane! I can’t believe I’ve been eating boring quesadillas all my life. Is it Sunday yet?

  3. What awesome tailgate ideas! I cannot wait for football Sunday! We will be testing these ideas out!

    Those Barbequed Pulled Pork Quesadillas look delicious. I’ll have to pick up a package of Farm Rich’s pulled pork and break out my quesadilla maker.

    A TV Room Tailgate Party is such a fun idea! I need to try those pulled pork sandwiches too!

  7. My husband is a football coach, so football is a big part of our life. My kids love to eat in the living room while watching the game.
