    Hi Ladies!!!
    Great ideas. I’m anxious to try the black bean salsa recipe.
    Love the whole tailgating thing!!! It’s the only thing I like about football season! HATE football, but cheered and coached and mothered cheerleaders for MANY years, so I was drug into the whole football atmosphere for a good portion of my life. The yummy food, tailgating, parades and halftime sustained me through each season.
    I know down south you ladies do it up bigtime. so…..question ….do southern ladies wear jerseys or do they glam up??
