A Utah Fam Are We

I've been a lover of college football for as long as I can remember, and every summer of mine is spent pining for the first week of September. I was lucky enough to marry a man as fanatical as I, and since today marks the start of the season, we couldn't be happier at the Clark home. We are mega Ute fans and planned to attend the University of Utah vs. Montana State game tonight, but things fell through at the last minute. Never one to forego a party, though, my husband called me from work to say he was at the grocery store buying items for our "red party" that we would have at home (that's yet another reason I love him). Although it was completely last minute, it was great fun and our kiddos loved it!

It's hard to see after cooking, but we asked the worker in the food court at Costco to make a U out of pepperoni. Everyone at Costco got a big kick out of it, and so did our kids because it was a surprise ("Did you know the pizza makers are Ute fans?!"). The Lehi Costco food court team made our day; they are awesome.

Our red desserts included Berry Burst Oreos--fabulous, by the way-- Big Red gum, red pretzel M&Ms, Red Vines, raspberries, strawberries, red jello, and fruit punch. We also had chips and ranch dip dyed pinkish red ( there's just no way to make it look appealing in a cell phone photo, sorry) and plenty of other junk food.

Now that we've all got the fat-happies and our fill of artificial red food coloring, bring on the Ute football! I hope all of your teams win this weekend and happy fall to all of you.
