hey there! I am so excited my favorite season is finally almost here. Every summer I go through this, I mean don't get me wrong I love summertime. Who doesn't? Sunshine, tan lines, beach days...it's the best, but fall has my heart and always will. I love sweater weather, curling up in blankets, looking forward to the holidays, yummy fall food, and last but most certainly not least, football season! I live for it (okay maybe slight exaggeration), but I really love it. It involves everything I love most - a reason to hang with friends / family, spend all day in comfy sweats while eating good game day snacks, and maybe the best part of all is the justified day time glass of wine, like a glass of JaM Cabernet!
Oh, and a little fun fact about me - I also really love the game. I grew up watching football with my dad, going to high school games in Texas (Friday Night Lights is no joke, y'all), and attended a college that thrives on football. You could say this sport runs in my blood, and you better believe I plan to win my fantasy leagues this year ;)!
The only real complaint I have when it comes to football season is how everything revolves around beer and snacks that go great with beer. Again, don't get me wrong here. I love all those snacks and I love beer, and I get it - that's sort of the tradition....but if you know me at all you know that wine is where it's at for me. I am so excited to be partnered up with JaM Cellars as football season kicks off because their Butter Chardonnay & JaM Cabernet are the perfect go to red & white wines to serve up on game day! And the best news? Under $20 and in a store right near you!
I've rounded up a few super easy cheese based game day snacks that will take you less than 30 minutes a piece to prepare...because what is wine without cheese, am I right?! Especially that brie wheel, someone will have to take it away from me because I could eat the whole darn thing! I hope all my fellow vino lovers have a great fall season, I'd love to hear in the comments what your favorite game day traditions, drinks, and snacks are! xo
3 EASY GAME DAY SNACKS THAT PAIR PERFECTLY WITH YOUR WINE!
Pair with JaM Cab - the berries in the wine pair fabulously with the fruity jam and strong taste of brie!
Pair with JaM Cab OR Butter - the olive tapenade and salami make this a great red pairing, but the cream cheese makes it light and creamy enough to drink with a white. Take your pick!
Pair with Butter - The light creamy goat cheese, tomatoes, and flakiness of the fillo dough make this a great refreshing snack to pair with a creamy white!
cheers! xoxo, simply delish eats & JaM!
