You may notice that there are TWO Baked Apple Bries on this football. There are just so many tasty combinations that one can make with this dish, so I just had to try another one. The Baked Apple Brie on the right is topped with black raspberry jam and was equally as delicious.
In case you’re, wondering, here’s a summary of how it went down in the kitchen:
Can we talk about how pretty this dish is? I couldn’t stop taking pictures! Check out the beauty of the inside.
If you’re mouth isn’t watering, there may be something wrong with you. Go to a doctor, immediately.
Pair this with a sweet apple cider, such as, my favorite, Angry Orchard, and you’ve got yourself a fancy lil’ tailgate.
If you really want to get cute with it, go ahead, add the football decorations. Your man may complain that it’s too “cute and girly” for a tailgate, but he’ll shut that mouth once it’s stuffed with ooey, gooey sweet brie.
A note here on the practicality of this dish for a tailgate. My very smart and logical friend, Michelle , mentioned some concerns about eating Baked Brie at a tailgate for fear it would be too sloppy and also because it’s better served warm. For those of you that share her concerns, simply bake the morning of your tailgate (only takes about 45 minutes start-to-finish), wrap and foil, and don’t unwrap until you’re ready to serve. OR, leave in foil and place on the grill for a couple of minutes to warm that sucker up!
The second recipe is a quick and easy sweet treat that was shared on Wednesday’s post : Pumpkin Spice Muffins. These semi-homemade muffins take no time to prep at all, and when topped with my pumpkin spice glaze, make the perfect hearty breakfast muffin to fuel you and fellow tailgaters through a long, “hard” day of beer drinking.

No defense required to scarf this muffin down!
You see the little orange dots? Yeah, I went ahead and threw in some Halloween colored chocolate chips while I was feeling crazy last night doing all of this baking.
Yes, it does get even better.
If you wanna get all festive on these babies, go to a candy store and buy some M&M’s that are your favorite team’s color. Throw ‘em in the batter, top with some colorful football decorations, and boom, you’ve got yourself the perfect tailgate treat.
Oh yeah, and about the workout…
This IS a Sometimes Healthy Living Blog, after all. My goal is to load you up with recipes for delicious food and then provide you with workouts that make you feel even better about indulging in these foods.
Today’s workout is in line with the whole tailgate theme. Awhile ago, I discovered these “ One-Song Workouts” on BuzzFeed and was instantly hooked. Sometimes the idea of working out can be so…overwhelming. So, the idea of simply playing one of my favorite songs and busting out a prescribed workout seemed much more approachable.
There’s only one problem. I cannot find any one-song workouts set to country music, and nothing motivates me more than a heart-pumping, downhome, hillbilly, redneck-celebratin’ country song.
So, I went ahead and created my own, using songs with a hard, fast beat and intense, yet hilariously fun lyrics.. Complete 1 of these workouts to work your: arms, legs/butt, abs and fully body. OR, blast each one of these motivating country songs and finish the entire workout.
A word of warning for those unfamiliar with country music. Most of these songs talk about “buyin Patron” “shootin’ Bacardi”, “fillin’ it up and throwin’ it down”, “sippin’ on a cold brew” and heading to the “bottom of a real tall cold drink.” This might feel a little strange to hear as you’re sweating your little booty off. BUT, keep in mind what you’re working towards: a nice cold beer and some greasy tailgate food.
You won’t find any Carrie Underwood or Taylor Swift here. These are the hardcore, hillbilly bad boys of country, and nothin’ motivates me more. There is something about this type of music that makes me just want to let loose, kick ass and take names. I promise it will make you feel the exact same way.
So, do yourself a favor this Football Sunday (or College Football Saturday). Wake up early, bust out this workout and get your yehaww on. Then, class it up a bit with my “fancy” tailgate food.
