Coffee Milk Punch

When Southern Living Magazine published this recipe for Coffee Milk Punch, they intended it to be a brunch item.  But for those of us who get up early to head to the stadium for the big game (and just can’t stomach a beer at 8am!), this seems like a perfect way to start a tailgate on a cold weekend morning!  Creamy coffee with Kahlua and a touch of fudge…Yum!  The Philadelphia Eagles play at 1pm this Sunday but unfortunately they are away so there will be no tailgating for me 😦  And even though it’s not terribly cold yet in Philadelphia (thank goodness!), I’m making this drink anyway.  Now if I can just talk my Chicago friends heading to the Bears tailgate on Sunday morning into trying this to start their day… 😉

Buffalo Chicken Eggrolls

For some people, Labor Day is depressing because it marks the end of summer.  But not for me.  Labor Day means the beginning of football season!  Since college football started last weekend (Go Illini!) and the NFL starts tonight (Go Eagles!  Go Bears!), I figured what a perfect opportunity to make these Buffalo Chicken Eggrolls.  These could easily be an appetizer, a snack, a lunch or a dinner – perfect for whatever time your game starts.  These cute little spicy eggrolls contain shreaded chicken (I used thin chicken breasts which cook faster than regular chicken breasts), buffalo sauce, light cream cheese and ranch seasoning.  I prefer my buffalo chicken with ranch instead of blue cheese so the cream cheese/ranch combination was right up my alley.  And they are baked, not fried so there is no reason to feel too guilty.  There isn’t a set recipe for these so you can add as little or as much buffalo sauce as you want (just make sure to roll them up tightly so the sauce doesn’t ooze out as they bake).  They pack up easily too which will make you the hit of the tailgate!  Try them.  Like now.
