And – only 4 more days between us and college football season. We’re quickly running out of time to get our taste buds fired up.
So, let’s keep this tailgating train a rollin’. Below are some more innovative tailgating recipes, inspired by California heirloom garlic. Tailgating isn’t boring…your food shouldn’t be either.
But first – a few more random, collective thoughts on perks of the Southern lifestyle…per my recent trip to Knoxville.
1.) Everyone calls you ma’am…even four-year-olds. Maybe they can educate my boyfriend on manners.
2.) There are green trees and vegetation. Living in LA, it’s easy to think brown and concrete are the new shades of coniferous.
3.) It rains…and people don’t start driving 10 miles an hour, while scattering like cockroaches. In California, you would think a meteorite is dropping from space when it drizzles.
4.) Cockroaches remind me of another insect…cicadas. I had completely forgotten about the melodic whistling cicadas emit during summer months. The rhythmic cicada symphony is truly one of the most soothing noises I’ve ever heard and is a prevalent backdrop in the South.
Now, for those delectable recipes.
T-minus four days and counting ’till college football kicks off – pun intended. So, get yourself to the grocery store before all the California heirloom garlic runs out and you’re forced to resort to hamburgers and potato salad.
