All looks very delicious, PSUGirl.
The only thing missing is a gargantuan slab o' dressed beef (or, perhaps, hog).

I think, however, I remember you walking on the vegetarian side; am I correct?

Either way, the veggies look great!

It is so time to get ready for tailgating. - less than 2 months to football - woo woo! Can't wait.

I purchased my "tailgate planning notebook" this weekend -
