The weather has finally turned, the leaves are falling, and football is all we can think about in this household. We are lucky to live in the same city as our alma mater and football season is an important ritual we take seriously. Lately I have been in a bit of a rut thinking of creative food and drink items to bring to our tailgate. With 40 plus attendees, I need something that will fill up a whole crowd and is family friendly *think mocktails*. Thanks to Dr Pepper® and Stouffers® I am ready for the next big game and I think you too will love these recipes!

Right now shoppers can save big for all their tailgate needs at Publix.



This creamy, gooey, concoction was easier than I could imagine thanks to Stouffer’s entrees. I picked up the macaroni and cheese entree that served up to 15 people- perfect for our large tailgate. I spiced the macaroni up and added a protein punch by adding tomatoes, green peppers, and pulled chicken. I love how this recipe is super easy yet looks like I cooked in the kitchen for hours. I can’t wait to impress the crowd at our with both the look and taste of this tailgate essential.


Diet Dr Pepper Floats  

These floats are super easy and will satisfy every fan’s cravings. The simple ingredients include Diet Dr Pepper, vanilla ice cream of choice, and for added flavor, chocolate syrup. I personally prefer the diet soda because the sugar is a bit too much for me in the regular version. But give the regular version a try for a more “filling” float.

Directions: Pour an ounce of Diet Dr Pepper in the bottom of the glass. Put in two small scoops of ice-cream. Pour the soda over the scooped ice cream and repeat until the glass is filled. I like a 4 scoop to 2 pour ratio! Finish the drink with a drizzle of chocolate syrup. Make sure the soda is cold!

I hope this provides some tailgate inspiration. Be sure to check out Publix for all your party needs, our local store has a whole section for quick grab and go party foods. Shopping couldn’t get any easier.
