Of course, as an AF wife, I was delighted to see AF beat CSU...but I've known a bunch of kids that played in that CSU band after having either sung or played with Dave or me. It's a thing of beauty.
A lot of the fun of the usually broiling or freezing AF games is in the tailgating. Is there anything better than a picnic in perfect weather with the Front Range in the background? We went with old college friends, which makes for a really easy day of being with people who knew you before you could cook and when you looked a whole lot better. We had a rather Texan food theme with chicken enchiladas, a new salad of beans, rice and lots of vegetables with a lime-cilantro vinaigrette ( I promised to blog this later), and totally out of character, crostatas for dessert. Oh, and of course we had sangria and margaritas. It was, after all past 10 in the morning.
But, back to the crostatas. I have to make them in the fall, and this time, they're coming up in a fall Italian cooking class I'll teach October 30. I thought it best to run through the recipe ahead of time. So....
