~ Tuning Up for Tailgate Thursday: The Penn State Nittany Lions vs. The Indiana Hoosiers ~

Texas Chili Dogs #1 ( 2 Dogs Intro Picture)

Oh my... Thanksgiving is right around the corner and there are only 2 remaining games in our Penn State football season!  Football season started just a couple of weeks after I started this blog and I have no idea where the time went!  It's been a whirlwind here at Kitchen Enounters, trying to keep up with a daily food blog and a weekly tailgate post as well...

Anyway, I just couldn't let the football tailgate season end without sharing a very special recipe with all of you and my friends over at Black Shoe Diaries.  For those of you who are unfamiliar with who the folks at BSD are, it is a great and fun Penn State oriented website: , which you should check out.  My weekly tailgate post on their website last Thursday (it was the one regarding five great tailgate sandwiches) prompted a discussion "over there at their house" about hot dogs.  It ended with my promising them a recipe for authentic Texas Chili dogs for this week's tailgate.  So, this post is for all of you at Black Shoe!!!
