Purdue Game

Congrats to the Soup-Off Winners!

1st- Josh' Crab Chowder
2nd- Greg's Broccoli Cheese
Just Like Momma's- Donna's Chicken Noodle
Caliente- Pam's Chili
Most Original- Marti's Pizza Soup
Click here to check out more photos from the big day!
Hard to believe next week is the last tailgate! It is a noon kick-off so it will be breakfast munchies if you are there before game time and a pot luck after the game. We figured we'd make it easy for everyone for the last game! :)
So far I know Donna is bringing Sausage w/Peppers and Onions. And I am bringing some deli appetizers and Chicken Broccoli Casserole (it is covered in cheese so it negats all the broccoli :)
See you all at Lot 24 for the last time this year :(!!!

PSU vs Ohio State- the SOUP-OFF

The Ohio State tailgate will feature a Soup-Off. Enter your best soup, stew, chili recipe (i.e. anything you can cook in a pot) for prizes and bragging rights.

All tailgaters will vote and prizes will be awarded in the following categories:
  • 1st and 2nd place for best overall
  • Most Unique Recipe

  • "Just Like Momma's" Award

  • "Caliente" Award (spiciest)

Voting will end at 5:00pm and the winners will be announed by 5:30pm. We'd love to snap some photos of all the winners! If you do not want to enter a soup- bread, cheese, crackers or any side item that could go with soup would be appreciated.

For the Kids: In addition to the Soup-off we will have a Halloween party for the kids. Come in your Halloween costumes (adults you can join in the fun too!!!). We'll have a Pinanta, some Halloween crafts and just some good spooky fun. Share any good ideas you might have for this.

FYI- I am planning on bringing Halloween cupcakes as one dessert.

An eight o'clock game, a winning streak, and a FULL day of tailgating! Can't wait!! See you there.

Great Mexican Fest yesterday!

Next week is a 3:30 kickoff and we decided the theme for the Wisconsin game will be 'OCTOBER FEST" so bring your best German dish with a *Cheesy Twist* so we can devour the cheeseheads of Wisconsin!

We have commitments for the following foods for next week
Cheesy Hashbrowns
Pepperoni Bread is a given no matter what the theme!

***Just a heads up: the following game (Ohio State) will be the Soup Off. There will be 5 categories for prizes (I will post those after the 13th). So start thinking about your best soup recipes and we'll have to hope for some crisp fall weather-a perfect soup day!
