I’m all about game day after the holidays are over.  It’s another excuse to sit around and eat tons of food while in the company of friends and family.  But here’s a confession….I don’t even watch the game. Not any game….or any sport (except tennis) for that matter.  But I do love a good tailgate with great food because I just love to eat.
