Football Season is HERE

Hubs joined his first ever Fantasy Football League this season.  I had NO idea the thought that went into picking some players for your Fantasy Football team.  I mean, those guys had spread sheets and everything!  And they had to be careful to watch out for the “buy weeks” so they didn’t end up without a receiver… whatever THAT means.

I confess, I have never paid much attention to football.  I mean, if you are from St. Louis, you are a Rams fan, right?

I like the Cardinals (baseball) and the Blues (hockey) as well.

I have been a Rams “fan” since they came to St. Louis.  I couldn’t name a single one of the players right now, but that doesn’t mean I don’t root for them.  I do know that they play the Jaguars tomorrow, and that they’ve had a good preseason run (33 to 10 against the Colts, 17 to 16 against the Titans, and 14 to 10 against the Chiefs) so far.

What do I like most the most about football season?

The food.

Some of the best recipes are passed around during football season!  My Aunt makes a dip called Hook Dip, and it is DELISH.  One would think that it is called Hook Dip because one taste and you are hooked.  It is, however, her maiden name.  And since I am not a Hook, I do not have the recipe.  Guess I’ll be munchin at Karyn’s house.  LOL.

Here are some yummy appetizer ideas to get your game party thoughts rolling…

And what would great snacks and appetizers be without great savings?  Have you seen the soda sales lately?  WOW.

Matching those sales up with coupons can save you a lot of money!

I used ClipNGo Coupons to get $75 worth of coupons, and was entered to win $1500 to throw the Ultimate Football Party.

Go Rams, Go!

Who is your favorite team?  Are you a die hard fan, or a casual fan (like me)?

  1. That Skinny Taco Dip and the Mango Lime dip are also gluten free. I think the mango lime dip would go great with the gluten free cheese crackers.

  3. omg, I think I’m gonna have to try that mango lime dip and those pizza pinwheels. DANG, they look good!

    Football however? I don’t so much like pro ball, but I love college ball.

  4. Oh my goodness..I’ve gotten so addicted to fantasy football the last couple of years. I didn’t even like football. 🙂 He should try entering some fantasy football contests – they’re free and you can win thousands of dollars if you pick the perfect team…

  5. The skinny taco dip looks great!!

  6. Great recipes. How’s your hubby’s team doing? I have two teams this year, thanks to my husband corrupting me!
