who is this team

November 12, 2013

whaaaaaattttttt !!??? the gophers are a nationally ranked FOOTBALL team!! not just hockey... men's football!? when is the last time i could say this?!?! i do not remember a time but i am thrilled!!! i love to tailgate at gopher games & sport my maroon and gold (unless they are playing my alma mater purdue, of course..) the last two home games i got to attend!! :)  we had a huge upset win over nebraska...which i find even more thrilling when there is a TON of husker fans everywhere and last weekend penn state.



first really cold tailgating of the season... brr!!!! we made hot apple cider, fresh spinach artichoke dip, mini banana splits & crock pot buffalo chicken chili with cornbread!!  yum!! it all hit the spot before the big game! 



the recipe i made this with was simple and soooo delicious!!! i put three frozen chicken breasts with 1/2 cup water in the crock pot for a full day (6-8 hours) while i was at work to cook and shred up.  overnight i added chicken broth, franks buffalo sauce, chopped carrots, white onion, celery & a couple cans of white northern beans. serve with blue cheese crumbles on top!! 







what a game!!!


this past weekend against penn state was military appreciation game to thank all of our military just in time for veterans day! they gave out free american flags to wave all game & hand warmers to keep warm.  the u of m takes care of us!! 


we are bundled up and very cozy under our goldy blankets!!!


seriously what a great game again!! such a fun weekend!!
