Week Nine Menu

Week Nine of the season is upon us and this means for most of the teams they are getting deep into their SEC schedules.   We don’t know about y’all but we love and hate all the SEC games as at this point it means a lot more nail-biting each week.

Spinach Artichoke Bites  Who doesn’t love a great spinach artichoke dip?  This little bite has all the taste without the mess.


Bourbon Apple Autumn Cocktail  The sweet taste of apples combined with bourbon.


Brownie S’mores  How perfect are these cute brownies for the weekend before Halloween?  And S’mores is one of everyone’s favorite treats.


Hissy Fit Dip  The name alone just makes us want to try this dip filled with melted cheese and sausage.


Cuban Sliders  A great way to change up the ham sandwich at a tailgate.  Even one of us loves it and she is an extremely picky eater.





The Southern Living SEC Tailgating Cookbook has put together a great combination for the Belles cheering on their tigers this weekend.

This week we’re sharing another breakfast tailgate menu for all those belles getting ready to cheer on their teams at noon on Saturday.

Guinness Bloody Mary  A new twist on an old brunch standard.  The beer not used can be drank after the game, of course.


Glazed Mixed Berry Scones  Berries are a great addition to any breakfast and a scone is a great change from a muffin.


Southwest Brunch Casserole  A spicy kick to start off the morning.


Baked Pumpkin Donuts with Caramel Glaze  Pumpkin, donuts and caramel are a great taste on a fall morning.


Bacon Cinnamon Rolls  Two breakfast favorites combined.  We think these will become a tailgate favorite.

Monday Morning Observations

We’ve reached the halfway mark , and this week’s Monday Morning Observations are chock full of things we really didn’t see coming when we started this season.


We aren’t going to talk about the Todd Gurley suspension, purely because for one of us, it causes heart palpitations. What we will talk about is the fact that without Gurley, Georgia ran all over Missouri. They stepped up to the plate, answered the call, and all the other cliches that imply they laid the hammer down on the Tigers. Hutson Mason did what we’ve been hearing he can do and Nick Chubb filled in running game holes without Gurley rather nicely. What was most impressive, perhaps, was the defense who forced FIVE Missouri turnovers.

Seven games into the season, Kentucky is only one win away from being bowl eligible. We’re talking football, here. Kentucky football. Who saw that coming at the beginning of the season? Certainly not us.


The entire state of Mississippi is no doubt waking up this morning pinching themselves to make sure they aren’t dreaming. In a season not many saw coming, both Ole Miss and Mississippi State are taking care of business and are 6-0. Mississippi State was up an impressive 21-0 on Auburn within the first NINE minutes of the game. Auburn was staging a pretty good comeback, and there were some questionable calls against them in the second half, but State held onto the win.

Oh, Florida. You had everything in your favor to pull out the win against LSU Saturday, but you somehow managed to still come out of the Swamp with a loss. It’s going to be a struggle for them to even win 6 and be bowl eligible. Muschamp’s seat sure is heating up.
