Football Friday - Food Edition!

Happy Football Friday!! I'm SO excited about having one of my best friends from college come stay with me ALL weekend long. I can't even remember the last time Amanda and I got to hang out, so that definitely means it's been entirely too long.

What football match-up are you all looking forward to this weekend? The Buckeyes will be playing Cali tomorrow night and then the Bengals home opener isn't until Monday night against the Steelers. Whew, bring it on Pittsburgh!!! It's a good thing Amanda, who is FROM Pittsburgh, is leaving Sunday.... I told her I won't allow any terrible towels in my house. ;)
My last visit to Amanda's resulted in many pictures like this.
Love, Fun & Fotball
I'm also excited to be bringing you all another addition of the link-up Erin, Tiffany and I got started last month. And today? It's all about the football food. Oh, the food! The reasons I gain weight every football season. I LOVE good snacks for the game and always love getting new recipes to try out as well. 

Below you will find my go-to dip for football season as well as a few favorites from some of my lovely sponsors! I highly recommend doubling or even tripling my Cheddar Bacon Ranch Dip when making for a crowd, as you and your friends literally will NOT be able to stop eating it. So simple, yet so addicting. Enjoy these and be sure to comment or link-up with your favorite football foods!

  1. Since I'm more of a college football than pro football fan, I'm looking forward to the Alabama and Texas A&M game. I'm hoping Alabama doesn't let them beat 'em again this year. :p

    That bacon ranch cheddar dip looks GOOD. I'm going to pin that for future reference. I'm glad you're still doing this link up.
