Library: Cookbooks for tailgating

Football Season is officially here and fans are in game mode. That means a whole lot of grilling and tailgating will be happening on game days. The origin of tailgating is difficult to pin down, but it seems the tradition may have started in the late 1800s or early 1900s. At least that is the unofficial consensus. One thing for sure, it is still a good reason to get together with friends for great food and plenty of fun. VickieHardin

For tried and true recipes the library has an extensive collection of cookbooks filled with quick and easy dishes perfect for tailgate parties such as: “The Southern Tailgating Cookbook: A Game-Day Guide for Lovers of Food, Football, and the South” by Taylor Mathis; “The Deen Bros. Get Fired Up: Grilling, Tailgating, Picnicking, and More” by Jamie and Bobby Deen, and Melissa Clark; “The Kentucky Barbecue Book” by Wes Berry; “Michael Symon’s Carnivore: 120 Recipes for Meat Lovers” by Michael Symon; “Good Times, Good Grilling: Surefire Recipes for Great Grill Parties” by Cheryl and Bill Jamison; and “Barbecues 101: More Than 100 Recipes for Great Grilled, Smoked, and Barbecued Food, Plus all the Fixings for Perfect Outdoor Projects” by Rick Rodgers.

According to the Pro Football Hall of Fame website, http://www.profootballhof.com, NFL Representatives of more than 20 clubs met at the Hollenden Hotel in Cleveland, Ohio on June 24-25, 1922 to amend to the two-year-old league’s constitution changing the official league’s name from the American Professional Football Association to the National Football League.
