Fall is here! Those chilly days are soon upon us. But you know what? That’s fine with me because there are plenty of things that will keep us all upbeat and happy just like food does. The season of fall is my favorite time of the year. From those ombre colored tree leaves to the brisk air change, fall is for me. I just can’t get enough of those tasty desserts and hearty meals. Wouldn’t you agree? It’s a perfect time of the year for a mixture of baking and college football.
Yes, I said it, college football. Are you a fan? My family and I have been fans of college football for over twenty years. In fact, my husband played college football for four years. It’s hard to believe it’s been that long. I still remember the first time we brought our twins to their first college football game. At the time, they were freshmen in high school and also played football. Both boys couldn’t believe that their father actually played on that same field. What an exciting game it was. Not only did our favorite team win, but both boys and my husband made it on live television during a touchdown play. You guessed it, we were in the end zone. It was and still is a great memory for all of us.
Unfortunately, after we moved away from our team, we don’t get a chance to root for them in person like we have in the past but once the season begins, and if the game is on television, the fever for college football is alive in my household.
Just the other day while shopping at Publix, I noticed the limited-edition packaging of Dr Pepper® Cherry. I mean, nothing goes with good friends and college football like ice-cold Dr Pepper. Wouldn’t you agree? There’s nothing like the refreshing taste of Dr Pepper. Do you know what else goes with Dr Pepper Cherry? STOUFFER’S® Entrées.
So after I grabbed a few of the specially marked bottles of Dr Pepper Cherry and before checking out, I picked up STOUFFER’S® Chicken Alfredo Entrées. My family and I love the taste of Chicken Alfredo so it was a win-win for me.
Have you tried Dr Pepper before? Dr Pepper is always original. It’s a signature blend of 23 flavors that makes every sip of Dr Pepper truly unique.
When you have a crowd like mine that loves to watch their favorite team play, you can always count on STOUFFER’S® entrées for a delicious dish to serve. They’re made with quality ingredients like real cheese, fresh hand-layered pasta, and vine-ripened tomatoes. It’s a delicious entrée you’ll feel good about serving your fellow fans. Do you know another thing? Shoppers can save big with great deals on watch party needs at Publix.
Talking about college football traditions, one of my favorite desserts to make before a game is my Cherry-Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies. Oh, my heavens, these cookies are off the hook. My whole family loves how chewy and delicious these cookies are. And they’re by far the best to bake in the fall.
From the taste of cinnamon to the chewy cranberries, these cookies are such a delight when you add Dr Pepper Cherry to the recipe. Let me just say, it’s hard to eat just one. In fact, I recommend holding a batch hostage because they will go fast.
Don’t these cookies look scrumptious? Crispy around the edges and chewy in the middle. They’re so irresistible when you’re celebrating your college football team this Fall.
-And remember, College Football is like no other game and college football fans are like no other fans especially when they have an ice-cold Dr Pepper in hand.
So when you want to treat yourself, nothing hits the spot like ice-cold Dr Pepper. It’s a college football tradition.
