We’re on the downhill slope toward full-blown football season and all that entails. Be you a fan of our Saints, Tigers, the Green Wave, the Colonels, Ragin’ Cajuns or any of the wide assortment of the region’s high school teams, it means tailgating, having a few drinks with fellow fans and generally enjoying.
Of course, it’ll be halfway through October before the weather moderates. This means the first month or so of the season is like bringing a football to a July 4th picnic, and the food choices usually reflect that. I love gumbo as much as the next guy, but it’s a lot more enjoyable when it’s 60 degrees out instead of 90.
