Football Recipes: Any Given Sunday!

On any given Sunday, it is football day in the Farmer household. Saturday is football day too, but Virginia Tech lost yesterday… *sighs*  Anyway, today we’re making a few new dishes to try while watching the games. One is from a friend; one from the Knob Creek Facebook page, one from Pinterest, and one my husband is inventing as he goes along. We’re happy to share some football recipes with you! (No, not recipes to make a football-you know what I mean!)

Leroy Houser’s 3 Packet Pot Roast

From my friend LeRoy Houser, came the recipe for “3 Packet Pot Roast.” It’s so simple to make, just buy a 3 lb. sirloin tip roast, 3 packets of dry gravy/seasoning mix and some carrots, onions and taters and you’re in business. Visit his site for the recipe, it’s under “Hot Stuff” on his page menu. There’s a great salmon recipe there as well.

LeRoy is quite a guy; a perfectionist, a great speaker and an even better fisherman. He doesn’t blow smoke; when LeRoy speaks, people listen. There are only 2 recipes on his site -I think it’s because LeRoy won’t put his stamp of approval on just anything. If he says it’s good,  it is GOOD!

From the Knob Creek Facebook Page came the recipe for a “Knob Creek Sour Ginger.” It’s a cocktail that’s not too sweet, which I appreciate. Here’s the recipe:

Knob Creek Sour Ginger

Knob Creek Sour Ginger

  • 2 parts Fresh Squeezed Ruby Red Grapefruit Juice
  • 1¼ parts Knob Creek Bourbon
  • ¾ part Domaine de Canton Ginger Liqueur
  • ½ part Lemon Juice
Garnish: Lime Wedge with a candied ginger
Serve: Combine all ingredients and shake with ice. Strain over rocks. Squeeze the lime wedge to disperse the candied ginger into the drink.
I encourage you to visit Knob Creek’s page, as they add recipes regularly.

Pinterest provided the “football recipe” for Honey-Beer Bread, and oh my is it delicious! It has a thick crust, tastes of malt and is unlike any bread I’ve ever had. It’s very easy to make and just soooo good.

Honey Beer Bread

Last but not least, my husband made salsa from the last batch of tomatoes we picked from our garden. He is making it up as he goes along, so this is not really a recipe…yet.
Eddie’s Salsa…so far
  • 3 cups chopped fresh tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup chopped green pepper
  • 1 cup onion, diced
  • 1/3 cup minced fresh cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1  teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 4 teaspoons chopped fresh jalapeno pepper (including seeds)
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 chopped chipotle chili in adobo sauce
It’s been a lot of work and a lot of fun!
