Winner update: 9/19/13: This giveaway is now closed. Thanks so much to everyone that entered! And the lucky random winner is… commenter #6 KELSEY JAST! Congrats!


If there’s one great thing about summer coming to an end, it’s that our favorite season of the year (at least in my house!) is about to begin… and I’m not talking about fall – I’m talking FOOTBALL! ;)

There are so many fantastic things that football season brings: game day get-togethers, tailgating, high-fives with fellow fans of your team, and even – or sometimes especially – playful banter with your friends rooting for the opposing team. There’s just an air of excitement all around… and this year we’ve teamed up with Frito-Lay to help get you fired up & ready for it all to begin! Here’s how…

P.S. My daughters are pictured here sporting the gear of our hometown team… just like most of their little friends do. Our own close friends know that Sonny (or “Dad”), who grew up near Oakland, still remains faithful to his own childhood favorite… but we’ve lived in San Diego for 15 years now, and he recently said “if this is the extent of their rebellion against him he’s cool with it”. HA! And ya… wouldn’t that be nice?! ;)

  28. Paul Boynton says:

    Bust out the avocados and start mashin’! We always add onions, tomatoes, and salt to the guac but cucumber is a cool addition. Not a fan of lemon juice. I am a fan of the Dolphins and the Chargers, so on game day I’ve gotta try to spread the love. Then just hope I made all my picks right…

  29. Oanh H. says:

    We buy beef and chicken wings at BJ’s the week of the game and condiments at supermarket. Marinate the meats the night before and on game day bake cupcakes in the morning. We try to do all the cooking and cutting in advance so there’s time for us to mingle with guest and enjoy the show.

  30. […] inspired Twitter Party TONIGHT at 5pm PST/8pm EST to help get the party ideas (not to mention some prizes!) flowing. I hope to “see” you there! Just use hashtag #FritoLayGameDay to join in the […]
