I have unfortunately never been to a tailgate. Sad, I know. I have never been to an NFL game either lol (too cold)
Especially downtown Cleveland. The stadium being right there on the lake and that wind hitting you. Nope I'll watch from my couch. Hopefully, next fall I will be able to go.

We tailgate at home because we aren't going to the game.

I have done it at the stadium (both in Baltimore and in Cleveland) and it is such a fun time, though I still like to be sure I am IN MY SEAT before kickoff. I hate the stream of fans coming in when you hear the thump of foot on ball.

If you are cooking to enjoy the game today then you are tailgating. If you are cooking to eat and not paying attention to the game then you aren't.

Shrek watches, I keep him fueled up and nudge him when he falls asleep.

Jr and his GF have tix to today's Viking / Philadelphia game. It's one of the last games at the Metrodome before they deflate the roof and tear it down to replace with a new and improved stadium.

I'm trying a new tailgate food today -- Nachos. Actually, Totchos. Tater tots, melty cheese, seasoned burger and toppings.

I saw these listed on a bar menu once. Today's the day to fix 'em. I'm using this recipe as a guide as I liked the picture. I guess I know how to make suitable arranged layers. Try to keep it looking neat.

Great, now Shrek wants Totchos...he gets them tomorrow night. I picked up what we needed at the store just now.

Found a really nice (expensive) avocado. And they had no ~ 1 pound packages of 80/20 burger, only the extra lean, I ended up with a 3.5 lb package of burger.

I know and then I lose it in the freezer and find it when it's freezer burned. I'm trying hard to shop weekly, not in bulk for meats and veg. I'm not wasting so much food this way. Of course, spur of the moment changes to the menu don't help, either

I am a firm believer in vacuum packing now. I pull stuff out out that has been in there for over a year and it is in wonderful shape.
