It’s OU weekend!  That means most Longhorns are spending the day in Dallas tomorrow eating corn dogs and hoping the our O-Line can stop the Sooners for the big game.  Me, I’ll be spending the day in my sister’s kitchen and hoping for whatever luck we can get.

I’m focusing our tailgate on comfort food with a little more game-time preparation than usual. (The better to distract me with.)  Whatever happens tomorrow, we’ll at least be happy about the food we eat.

Pregame: Radish Dip with baby carrots and crackers
First Half: Beer and hope
Second Quarter: Beer and agony
Halftime: Venison burgers, creamed cream peas with bacon, spicy baked sweet potato fries
Third Quarter: Nervousness, elation at our comeback.
Fourth Quarter: Apple Pudding
