Football season is here, and all the memories of growing up watching Sunday football with the neighbors come back this time every year. I remember them heading down for morning bacon, my dad would always make extra for them. After the breakfast fun we would start creating the best football party snacks that were yummy and really easy to make.
Who Is Your Favorite Team
In my house we routed for Da Bears, most of our neighbors were from Chicago, so they became the team I still route for to this day. In 1986 when they headed into and won the Big Game, our house was filled with fun and laughter, and cheering, and a whole lot of amazing football party snacks.
The Best Football Party Snacks
Most of the best football party snacks are created every time we watch a game, or a race, or a TV series, you know, any chance we get. But a few of them are so special, we only create the during football season.
