It's Tailgating Time

School has started...there have been days where the Temperature is only in the 80's....and people are beginning to refer to what does this mean? It's about time for a little Mountaineer Football! For my fellow Appalachian alumni, you share in this excitement with me. What comes with football? Tailgating! I have recently started my own cooking class at work entitled "You Can Cook:"..and next month's theme is of course "You Can Cook: Tasty Tailgating Treats" .. you can imagine how much fun I've had testing recipes! Here's a unique recipe I found that was really tasty! Let's hope my class likes it next month!

Edamame Dip (instead of your typical guacamole dip)

  • 1 pound shelled edamame (these soybeans are available in the frozen-foods section at grocery stores)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon chopped garlic
  • 5 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
Puree all the ingredients in a food processor or blender until the mixture is smooth. Makes 2 1/2 cups. Serve with store bought or homemade tortilla chips!

Here are a few pictures from Appalachian's Fan Fest last weekend. Too bad none of my friends know who Corey Smith is...but at least Madelyn will be a future ASU Dance Team Member. :)
