Library: Get pumped up for NFL playoffs


The NFL Playoffs and Super Bowl are coming right up so pick your teams, get the food ready, and kick back for some football fun.

VickieHardin copyYou may not agree on which team is the best, but everyone agrees that good food is always a winner.  “The Deen Bros. Get Fired Up: Grilling, Tailgating, Picnicking, and More” by Jamie Deen is filled with mouthwatering recipes that will satisfy a house full of family and friends. Recipes from “Born to Grill: An American Celebration” by Cheryl Alters Jamison and Bill Jamison, and “Firehouse Food: Cooking with San Francisco’s Firefighters” by George Dolese & Steve Siegelman are guaranteed to please a hungry crowd. 

Bring home a handful of books about favorite football heroes, coaches, and teams like “Mr. Inside and Mr. Outside” by Jack Cavanaugh, “If These Walls Could Talk: Dallas Cowboys, Stories from the Dallas Cowboys Sideline, Locker room, and Press Box” by Nick Eatman, “Captain Crash and the Dallas Cowboys: From Sideline to Goal Line with Cliff Harris” by Cliff Harris or “Johnny Football: Johnny Manziel’s Wild Ride from Obscurity to Legend at Texas A&M” by Mike Shropshire. 

Sit back and enjoy some downtime after the busy holiday season.  May the best team win.
