It's finally game week and I don't know about all of y'all, but I couldn't be more grateful it's here. After months of dealing with the unknown, it appears (as of Wednesday) that we will have SEC Football. Praise be!!!
To celebrate this season, I'll be sharing Tennessee-inspired recipes, rituals and traditions each week to get in the game-day spirit. I am so proud of my Tennessee roots and I absolutely love supporting local businesses. So why not promote these like-minded brands alongside Preserve Press? It makes sense to me.
This week, it's all about "Hound in the Henhouse" as the Tennessee Volunteers travel to Columbia, South Carolina to take on the Gamecocks. If you remember last year's matchup, you know that the Vols took a big bite out of the chickens, winning the game at Neyland Stadium 41-21.
We're now living in Covid life and that will change how we watch games. The stadiums that once held over 100,000 fans will only host twenty-five percent of that, and that means most of us will be watching from home. So let's make the best of our all-SEC schedule by creating our own tailgates at home. We will affectionately call it #Homegating.
What better way to celebrate this season opener than with a delicious roasted Tennessee Chicken from Paris, Tennessee company, Allegro Marinades?! Allegro Fine Foods has been a staple around these parts since proud Tennesseans Dave and Betsy Wilcox founded the company in 1977. Not surprising, we at Preserve Press find great value and like-minded philosophies in this family-owned business and we hope you'll support all of us who continue to celebrate our roots and work ethics that were formed hundreds of years ago through our hard-working ancestors who paved the way for us.
I hope you and yours will find your own #Homegating joy as we navigate these unprecedented times. Let's make this season special in our own personalized ways, creating and preserving memories each and every game day.
