cooking and lovin' it

Well, today was another busy day.  I worked at the quilt shop all day, stopped at the grocery, then came home and cooked for 3 hours!  My son has asked me to "cater" his OSU tailgate parties for every home game. So...only about 40 people for the home opener.  The weather is going to be wonderful, and the guys are very appreciative of home cookin'.  This week's menu is breakfast of hickory smoked ham, cheese, and egg soufle'.  Lunch is:  quarter pound (yes, Quarter Pound!) all-beef weiners with homemade chili sauce, diced onions and cheddar cheese; a taco dip with fresh tomatoes, green onions, and grated cheese on a bed of homemade bean dip and taco seasoned cream cheese;  and dozens of fresh-baked chocolate chip cookies. 
As the season progresses, the food quantities increase, as do the number of fans.  I have the usual standbys planned:  chili in a bag, chicken and noodes, brats and burgers.  If you have any great suggestions for tailgating food for crowds that can be heated on grills, let me know.  I'd love to hear from you.  Oh, yea, GO BUCKS!

p.s.  Friday, I will be working at the Circleville Quilt Show for Always in Stitches Quilt Shop.  It's held at the Trinity Luthern Church, 135 E. Mound St.  9-5 both Friday and Saturday.  It's a good show with over a hundred quilts and 10 vendors.  Stop and visit if you are in the area.
