Tailgate 2008 #4

So I haven't really followed through with posting about the tailgates, but actually nothing noteworthy has gone on so far. Our default fare is hot dogs. This year I swapped out chicken breasts split down the middle lengthwise for a hot dog and with the ketchup and mustard, you can't really tell the difference.

This past week, being our last tailgate for a month, I decided to take it up with carne and pollo asada. The Sprouts grocery by our house has great marinated meat for purchase and it just happened to be on sale for $3.99 a pound. I picked up 4 pounds of chicken and 3 of beef. For sides I made 2 types of rice, one was salsa and cilantro rice, the other was cilantro and adobo seasoning. I also made up 2 cans of black beans with some diced jalapenos in it. We had chips, salsa, shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, corn and flour tortillas and shredded cheese. I brought the stuff to make authentic margaritas using a classic 3-2-1 ratio (tequila, triple sec, lime juice) along with a bunch of Tecate and lime slices. It was quite a bit of fun. We has a childless tailgate and Darrell Kinder showed up sans wife. One of my cornhole boards took a beating last week when Zach jumped onto it. I fixed the most obvious issue, but found that one of the joints had come loose so only one board was used. I will have a whole month to fix the other board as it is late October before our next home game (2 open dates and 2 road games) and I am planning to do an Oktoberfest theme with Brats and some good German beer. After that it is Homecoming and then our post T-Day bash.

Tailgate for First Game

So here is my post for the first tailgate.

It isn't happening. No one can come so I canceled the tailgate. I am thinking of going to Four Peaks before the game so look for a review of their new Endless Summer beer.

Tailgating Rudowns

Because my life is sooooo interesting, I am going to do tailgating rundowns on the blog, including but not limited to talking about what I cooked, new toys and games that I bust out for the games and a recap of what we drank. I know, I know it sounds truly fascinating and everyone with be hammering the site Monday mornings looking for my posts. Actually there are some interesting things that go on and I have cooked some pretty interesting things, so I give this a shot. Look for it next Tuesday (Monday is a holiday and will not be doing much of anything.)
