What I Ate Wednesday – MNF tailgating

Posted: December 14, 2011 in family, football, sports, travel, wiaw

My Mom is cute. Way cute.  She always does her best to make every event special.  Her efforts at a healthy tailgating are the topic of week’s What I Ate Wednesday…Tailgating style!
Last week my Mom was in town for a visit and some Monday Night Football! We made the drive to Jacksonville to watch the Chargers take on the Jaguars.

The city of Jacksonville
Talk about some muscular legs.

You may have heard me talk about the Cowboys….. a lot…Kyle loves the Cowboys and because I love him…I love the Cowboys.  However my Mom is a Chargers fan and I grew up a distanced east coast Chargers fan in Virginia.

In an effort to be healthy and eat a good, yet portable, meal before the game my Mom created an in-hotel tailgating buffet.

Our spread included:

  • whole wheat bread
  • deli chicken and roast beef
  • deli cheeses
  • fresh tomato and romaine lettuce
  • baked chips
  • kumquats
  • potato salad
  • veggies
  • Beck’s light
  • Chocolate chip macadamia nut high protein cookies from the cookie party
It was great to have a fun meal and something lighter then typical tailgating fare.  Sammy’s and chips are great to me!
The game was wonderful as Philip Rivers and the Chargers offense finally got a movement going! We also had amazing second row seats! Thanks MOM!
Kyle & I polished off the remainder of the cold cuts, cheese, and veggies on the late drive home.
Thanks Mom!

On another note today is Kyle’s birthday! The BIG 3-0!  Happy birthday KYLE!!

Love and first downs, 

Carissa & Kyle

  1. Happy Birthday Kyle (my husband, also a Kyle turned 30 this year)!How cool to go to the football game and have your mom, who is quite awesome, create the tailgate.I too am from Virginia, but was always a 'Skins fan (just guess that was due to proximity of the team). Have a great Wednesday Carissa!

  2. Hey Rachel! I'm from Southern VA and there are A LOT of Redskin fans there…I'm just not one of them! :)It was a great game and a wonderful MNF atmosphere!Yeah to your Kyle!
