We filmed another cooking show last week. Maureen joined me, and we came up with a few more recipes to add to her tailgating repertoire.
When we filmed our last tailgating show, we focused on more traditional recipes like chili and wings.
This time around, we focused on recipes that are easy to prepare in advance as well as transport easily. And since Maureen draws dozens of fans (they may say that they are football fans but I'm betting that they show up week after week because they are even bigger fans of Maureen's cooking), we wanted to prepare foods that can also be made in huge batches to feed a crowd.

We started with this and by the time we finished our cooking we were lucky there was any left to photograph!
I think it took me longer to wash and cut up the celery sticks for dipping than it did to throw the dip together.
Oh, my, this is one of my favorite salads ever. It will be perfect for tailgating because Maureen can prep all of the ingredients in advance, pack each ingredient in its own container and let her tailgaters create their own salads. And douse it with the yummy balsamic vinaigrette.
We proceeded to top it with vanilla bean ice cream, but for ease of travel Maureen can use whipped cream.
