2016 Week 5 Tailgating Ideas

This entry is part [part not set] of 21 in the series tailgating 2016

2016 Week 5 Tailgating Ideas

This is a weekly series where we review last weeks NFL and NCAA action and check new tailgating Ideas!

What? Going into week 5 in the NFL and there are only 3 undefeated teams left. Here’s the incredible part, this short list includes our local team, the Vikings. Denver and Philadelphia are the other undefeated teams.

As an old Viking fan it is really hard to get excited for the team as we have been disappointed so many times in the past. (it’s the scandinavian stoicism in me, Uf da)

Anyway, I digress. Something seems different this year. Even Dot, our chicken, is getting excited. Last week she painted her nails purple. How did she do that? What do you suppose Dot will do this week?

How about some heat in your meatballs? Check out Firecracker Chicken Meatballs by http://littlespicejar.com/

This is my favorite way to eat chicken meatballs. They’re spiced up with a sweet, savory, and spicy firecracker sauce. They’re tender, filled with flavor, and require minimum work!

Here’s a great looking spicy dip: Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Dip by http://www.gimmesomeoven.com/

Ali says:

Simply add all of your traditional buffalo chicken dip ingredients to the bowl of a slow cooker…

…stir them together…

…and then after cooking the mixture on high for 60-90 minutes, or on low for 2-3 hours…

…this ridiculously irresistible dip will be ready to serve.  And I do mean irresistible.  I’ve made buffalo chicken dip dozens of times, and there are never ever leftovers.  It’s a delicious fact of life that I’m ok with.  🙂
