Here we geaux, Tigers...Here we geaux

After a pretty good performance at Jerry's World/AT &T /Cowboy Stadium, Tigers still have some kinks to work out, but they looked much improved in some areas.  Anxiouly awaiting that proverbial "biggest improvement is between games 1 and 2" adage. The younger set of FFT 'ers were stellar tailgaters on an actual piece of grass with great ambiance in Lot 4..."passed a good time" and the Tigers did not let us down! All safely returned home to prepare for the Home Opener. Here is week 1 Menu

HOMECOMING 2012-Mississippi State

Well, the Bama game outcome wasn't victory, but the team sure put forth a great effort...Tigers need to hold heads high and take it to those Mississippi bulldogs.....it's homecoming after all.
Preliminary menu is

Pastalaya  ..Assorted snacks and desserts...All home cooks contributions accepted

I will be in Houston until later in the week, but if you are bringing something let me know.

Kudos to chefs Jay and Eusebio as well as all the others who contributed to last weeks festivities.  I am delighted I was able to be there and truly appreciate all the dedicated FFTErs.  Food was ALL FABULOUS....

BRING ON BAMA......THE BIGGEST GAME BECAUSE IT'S THE NEXT ONE!!!!!

FFT IS PROUD TO ANNOUNCE GUEST CHEFS FOR THE BAMA GAME--------

The one and only JAY Ducote and the "infamous" EUSEBIO Gongora... quite a dynamic duo.....

There is a distinct possibility that there will be NO Baton Rouge Fords in attendance due to such things as the B.R. City Swim Meet Championship, Soccer Games and last but certainly not least a "BIRTH-DAY"...that's right, even Mama and Papa may miss this one for a grandson's arrival in Houston---stay tuned for the outcome>>>>>>>Please carry on in our absence and pull the tigers through!!!!

We are ever so grateful that Jay and UCBO decided to make this their game to grill etc....If you would like to contribute snacks and/or dessert, bring it on.....If Mama is there, she will bring some, but if not, well folks you are on your own!!!!!

The trailer, and the supplies as well as all the FFT stuff will be loaded and ready for Jay to place in the designated spot on Friday, if Charlie is in Houston.....If you can help set up, show up EARLY Saturday morning to help!!!!

So, I really don't know what's on the menu, but I do know it will be top notch delicious.

Bama will be a FFT with a different twist, maybe our team will follow suit--"BRING IT!"
