Will and I love football season! We both attended different colleges that today are rivals – Will went to school in West Virginia and I attended one in Kansas. It’s pretty funny to see us when our teams play each other. Talk about friendly rivalry! There have been a few bets placed (and lost). All in the fun name of sports.
This year during the College Football Playoffs, we are going to be choosing sides once again. But since neither of our teams made it, we will take our loving rivalry to the kitchen. As we have fun homegating, we are making our own favorite recipe and letting our family pick their favorites.
Will is making his favorite: fried meatloaf sliders. I’ll be dishing up easy garlic knots with homemade honey mustard sauce.
One thing we both agree on – our homegating recipes taste the best with an ice-cold Dr Pepper®! That fizz and flavor is refreshing. Check for the 2-liter football bottles. They are great for having out at your Homegating party.
Easy Grocery Pickup From Walmart
When I discovered my local Walmart offers grocery pickup, I was elated! I just ordered my food online (no crowds, no lines!). Then, I used the app to notify them when I left my house. It uses GPS to alert the staff when I arrive. While I’m checking my emails, they are loading my car with my groceries.
It’s kind of insane how easy this all is. My least favorite thing of grocery shopping was always how crowded it was and how long it took to find the food and pay. With all the crowds and long lines gone, I’m back to being a huge fan of shopping at Walmart.

Which is your favorite? I can’t wait to hear what you think. The girls really loved Will’s fried meatloaf sliders! I think overall, his recipe won the most votes!
The College Football Playoffs are such a fun time for our family! I love homegating with them – eating good food and cheering for our teams. It’s such a fun time to give each other a hard time while enjoying just being around each other.
Next time, I’m going to put bacon in my rolls…then I’ll win for sure!
