One thing M and I have learned over the years is that after the game:
1. We're hungry
2. So is everyone else
3. There's a lot of traffic to contend with

So in order to make things a little more efficient (without leaving the game early-- we're going to stick around for every last second/ down/ point-- you name it), I pack post game sandwiches to enjoy after the game and always make several extra to offer friends who have pitched tents and extended gracious hospitality.

The nibbles vary from week to week and are pretty basic in nature only because I really can't stand for a soggy sandwich (hold the tomato, please). I have leftover sliced dinner rolls from last week's Barbecue Sliders that I tossed in the freezer. I'll build the sammies right on the frozen rolls as they'll have plenty of time to thaw before we enjoy them. This Saturday's post game stash:

Roast Beef-Horseradish
Samm-ettes: Stir together 1/2 cup mayonnaise, 3 Tbsp. prepared horseradish, 1 tsp. Dijon mustard, and a light sprinkle of salt and pepper. Spread mixture on about a dozen or so split dinner rolls and layer up with deli-sliced roast beef and Swiss cheese. Wrap each samm-ette, separately, in Saran and tuck into a gallon-size zip-top plastic bag. Before sealing, add several napkins. Push all of the air out of bag as you seal it. Toss into your cooler before heading out the door.

What are you craving? Let me know and I'll tackle it for you!
Chow, y'all!
