Cooking Through the Football Season – Week 1

August 31st felt like I was back in the old Southwest Conference days of my college years.  Texas Tech was playing SMU. LSU was playing TCU.  A&M was playing Rice.  I was *this close* to pulling out my old Fish Camp t-shirt and actually did do my Fish Camp yells. 

Fish Camp ‘91
Aggie spirit, pride and fun
All the pieces come alive
For the Fightin’ Class of ‘95!

If you’re not an Aggie, don’t worry, you really won’t get that.

Oh, and by the way, it really is a cult.

Anyways, it’s week 1 of college football season and therefore the first week of my personal challenge to cook through the football season with my Southern Living  Official SEC Tailgating Cookbook.  We played a non-conference opponent this week, so I picked something from the Texas A&M tailgating menu to cook. 

This week’s choice….

Oven-Baked Churros

Baked Churros

Just slice some frozen puff pastry into strips, bake, dip in butter, sprinkle with cinnamon sugar and allow to dry.  Super simple and not a bad facsimile of churros.

And nice job by Southern Living for a dessert choice for Texas A&M.  See… if you make enough of them, you could stack them like Bonfire.

Just sayin’.

At the end of the day, the game was exciting, I’ll be rooting for Rice in the C-USA the rest of the season and these Oven-Baked Churros were quite tasty.

Next week, we BTHO Sam Houston State. 

Gig ‘em!
