Don’t worry. I’m not losing my mind or prematurely getting my hopes up for an undefeated Aggie football season. I’m just reliving the glory days.
To tell you the truth, this is just one of the first pictures that came up when I googled A&M football.
I have a point.
College football season officially started last night! This time of year always makes me so happy. Maybe because I know Seth is over the moon. Maybe because I know there will be less golf on TV. Whatever the reason, it’s exciting. Until about mid-October when I start wondering if I’ll ever be able to watch anything else on TV in my whole life. But I did my part. Seth was at school last night. I was in bed with a headache. But I still had the TV on as if I was watching Boise St vs. Oregon. Even though the blue turf bugs.
I really do have a point.
I noticed that BooMama was hosting a “Diptacular” on her blog. And it got me thinking. College football is really 40% football, 60% food. You know you agree. It’s hard to get irritated at the TV that is mysteriously stuck on ESPN when you have a nice hot bowl of queso and lots of chips. Or a plate of brownies. And a soda (or your drink of choice) is a MUST. Heck, I might even risk pulling out the cherry salsa.
Do I dare??
So in the spirit of the Diptacular, I wanted to share my own gameday dip recipe. Except it’s not my own, it’s Cara’s, but it’s still so very good and I reminisced about it the other day when asked for the recipe. This is an easy one that we often take to our Aggie tailgates (and one Seth will be taking solo tomorrow…almost a little sad here, folks!) and it gets eaten right up.
(not to be confused with Anderle dip)
2 16oz cans diced tomatoes
2 4oz cans chopped green chilis
2 4oz cans chopped black olives
2 tbsp red wine vinegar
1 tbsp oil
4-6 green onions, chopped
salt & pepper to taste
Mix all together and serve chilled with chips
Easy and delicious. In fact, maybe I will start sharing a good gameday recipe every Friday!
Then again, maybe not.
Here’s hoping the Ags can pull off a victory tomorrow against New Mexico. Because it’s a new season, right?
p.s. We also need to discuss ESPN’s poor choice of using Kenny Chesney to sing their new college football song. Really? I mean, yes, I was as tired of the Big & Rich promo as you were, but Kenny Chesney??
