The weather feels like it’s finally turning a little cooler, and just in time for football season. We no longer have a football player in the house, but with a college game or a professional game on almost every night of the week, my family will be tuned into football on the big screen for the next several months.
Nothing is more perfect than football season and snacking season. So, I try to bring some of that tailgating into the kitchen with chili, tortilla soup, meatballs or BBQ sliders. This year, I kicked off the season right with Slow Cooker French Dip Sandwiches. You can put this in the slow cooker early on a Sunday morning before church, and then return home to a yummy Noon kickoff!
This recipe scored big points with my family, and it was easy to eat while watching the game and having a little football family time.
