Football game today!! GO RU!! Football food can be a tough challenge when trying to stay unprocessed. We tailgate before every home game, and are limited to foods we can cook in a grass lot. It's different than camping, in a way, as we are limited to the small grill and what you can cook on it. This is the only home game during October, so I guess I got off kind of easy. :) The game was at noon, which also presented a challenge. We leave the house at 9:30am; so do you cook breakfast or lunch foods? We usually do breakfast for a noon game. Lunch if it is later.
So we went with egg sandwiches for the tailgate. I bought store-made hard rolls; our grocery, while they do not claim to use whole wheat/non-GMO, do claim that their breads are made with no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives. They "claim" they follow the same homemade recipe we do. Since football was a deliberate exception, I gave in and we used the hard rolls. Still working on my breadmaker. On those rolls, we used cage-free local eggs, fried in organic olive oil, with organic ketchup and sliced cheddar cheese. My husband and boys added a slice of pork roll - Taylor Ham for those of you not from NJ. I tried to hold true and didn't eat it. So I did good, not great. Beverage was a mojito; tradition that can now be broken, since we lost the game. Getting too cold for them anyway, :)
During the game, I ate and drank nothing.
After the game, for dinner we indulged in cleaning out all the leftovers from the fridge.
Evening snack: vanilla Chobani
