tailgate menu part 1: mixed grill


As the summer heat slowly drifts away and the crisp fall air comes to take its place, I can’t help but be excited for what’s to come in the next few months. Pumpkin flavored everything, apple picking, apple cider, the orange and red foliage, an extra blanket to cozy up with at night and so much more. But most importantly, tailgating before and after our alma mater football games. One of mine and Nate’s joys is to create menus for each home game for everyone to enjoy and with our friends now a part of our tailgate food discussions, I thought it would be fun to share with you our weekly menus. First up this week, we decided to have a “mixed grill” with remaining frozen summer BBQ fare; chicken, ground beef and sausage with some yummy sides. Here’s the whole menu, if you would like to see…



  • Burgers
  • Chicken Patties


  • Sausage and Peppers

  • Brownies
  • Oreo Brownies
