A Penn State Tailgate & Vocal Point RSVP Party

I always enjoy crisp Fall homecoming weekends at Penn State.
This year we could not sneak away for the big game, 
so I set up a tailgate at home. 
It's {almost} like being there. 

Vocal Point sent me some tailgate goodies 
to test out Chiquita's newest product, ripe and ready avocados!

I've never bought fresh avocados, so I knew this would be an adventure for me. 

I taped 2" party circle Football Printables from Anders Ruff
to push up pop containers filled with BLUE and WHITE peppermint patty pieces
 (major score because they are much cheaper than custom M&Ms!)

Mozzarella, Tomato and Avocado Salad
Recipe Found here

Cilantro Lime Chicken Salad in Avocados
Recipe found here (I omitted the jalapenos)

For any Penn State fans out there, this is my tribute to Joe Paterno, Head Coach of the Nittany Lions since 1966.
I get chills every time he runs out on the field. 

Thank you Vocal Point and Go Penn State!
