Get your Tailgate On!

It's hard to imagine that we're midway through October already! (Wasn't it just a few days ago that we were all enjoying the beach?) Not only is it the middle of October; but for a lot of us, it is also the middle of football season! It's that time when we pull out our favorite sweaters, grab our stadium blankets and head to the game. Or else we get together with friends and family to enjoy the big game in front of a big screen television.

It's also time for us to change our game plan when it comes to Tailgating, whether we're at the stadium or in the comfort of our own homes. Time to put aside submarine sandwiches, carrot sticks, chips and salsa; time to start making soups and chili; sloppy joes, pulled pork sandwiches, and wings. Time to fill our thermoses with hot mulled cider and hot chocolate.

For home chefs, this is good news, because it gives us a chance to flex our “tailgate muscles,” and up our own game a little. And it's great news for our family and friends who get to enjoy all those wonderful goodies, along with some season-appropriate new recipes, they haven't had since last October - or maybe haven't ever had before.

So, what do we do now? What do we serve our friends on Friday night or Saturday afternoon - any time we’re headed off to the game, or entertaining a group of football fans at home? At MorningStar Kitchen we have lots of ideas for you! In fact, we’re serving a lot of them to our guests and crew these days, in celebration of both football and high color season here in Northern Michigan. Most of what we’re serving these days are recipes that we reserve especially for this time of year. Many of them take advantage of our fall harvest. And all of them add to the celebratory spirit of the season.

Let me give you a glimpse into what we’re serving before next week’s game. With the incredible flavors on this menu, we’re confident that this will be a memorable start to another beautiful October afternoon at the stadium!

All these recipes, along with hundreds more, and the seasonings that make them over-the-top delicious are available on our website. Check us out now and be prepared for your next Tailgate Party!
