Are you ready for some football? Well, ready or not – the biggest game of the year is right around the corner. And I have a little confession to make. I’m not a huge sports fan. I really just want to get in on the food.
(We’re all friends here, so I know you won’t judge me.)
Anyway, no matter how you feel about the actual game, it’s a great excuse to get together with a few friends, enjoy some fab finger foods and keep an eye out for the best commercials.
This week, I’m really excited to share that two blogs – The Food Addicts and Eclectic Recipes – featured Tastefully Simple products as great game day appetizers. See the delish recipes and learn more about these cool blogs on our website at: http://www.tastefullysimple.com/tryourrecipes/foodbloggers.aspx.
Of course, I couldn’t resist playing around with a couple appetizer recipes from our website, too. Check out the easy recipes below, courtesy of Elissa Hancks (IA) and Tricia Schager (IL). These snacks are simple, delicious and guaranteed to make your whole crowd go wild. (Come on … you had to know that one sports pun was coming. A girl only has so much self-control.)
Game on, people – enjoy!
