Tailgating or Homegating This Fall With Coleman

Tailgating or Homegating This Fall With Coleman

Ready for tailgating? Football season is almost here. Get your tailgating or homegating needs from the Coleman Collection. #TailgatingWithColeman

 

Tailgating or Homegating

This Fall With Coleman

 

Are you ready for football? We can’t wait to hit the Friday night lights when our alma mater plays. It’s such a fun time gathering around and tailgating with old friends and cheering on our favorite high school team.

We thought we’d give our new Coleman products a trial run with a preseason kick-off and a little homegating to get us in the mood. Walmart has an entire Coleman collection. You can find things in the store, but there is even more available online. You can have your Coleman products delivered to your home or pick them up in-store and SAVE!

SHOP THE COLEMAN COLLECTION!

 

Coleman 4-in-1 Mosaic Table

We ordered the Coleman 4-in-1 Mosaic Table and the Coleman Party Ball. It was easy to run through our local Walmart and pick these up. I could even text the store when I arrived, so they could get my packages ready for me. How easy is that? I love anything that saves me time.

We love the Coleman 4-in-1 Mosaic Table. It has a thoughtful and well-planned design. It is compact to carry and store, and all of its pieces snap inside the closed table. There is even a handle. The table consists of two tables that you can configure in a multitude of ways — two side tables, one square table, one long table. The table also features adjustable legs for differing heights and adjustable feet for stability, awesome. You could even make a two-level table for serving. Strong, sturdy, stable.

Watch this video on how easy the table is to set-up, tear-down, and configure.

 

Coleman Party Ball – Charcoal Grill

The Coleman Party Ball is a small charcoal grill that features foldable legs, lid latches, and a handle for transport. The grill has a removable charcoal tray for easy clean out of ashes. The lantern shaped draft holes are pretty cute. We easily fit four hamburgers on the grill, and we had to toast our buns in two batches. The Party Ball is great for on-the-go.

All in all, we had a fun time with our homegate. We had some great food and even laughed it up with some crazy antics. So, whether tailgating at the game with friends or homegating in the backyard with family, Coleman is there to help you enjoy the outdoors!

Get ready for your Fall tailgate with the Coleman Collection and get your discount when you pick-up in the store.

Happy Tailgating!

15 BLT Recipe Ideas – Re-imagine The Classic

Re-imagine the classic favorite with these 15 recipe twists on the Bacon Lettuce, and Tomato sandwich. Celebrate with BLT recipe ideas for every meal or party.

15 BLT Recipe Ideas

Re-imagine the Classic Favorite with These Tasty Twists

I have to admit, a good bacon, lettuce, and tomato sandwich is one of my all-time favorites. There is just something sublime about the melding of those savory and fresh ingredients. It is an easy sandwich that everyone knows how to make…or do they?

We have had a big laugh a couple of times within the last six weeks or so while dining at two different restaurants. I ordered the BLT sandwich, and both times my sandwich was served without tomato. What’s that? Bacon, lettuce, and TOAST??? Both waitresses were as shocked as we were, and the laughter just rolled.

Needless to say, BLTs have been on my radar, so I thought it would be fun to do a round-up of bacon, lettuce, and tomato inspired recipes. I’ve scoured the web and pulled together some amazing BLT recipe ideas that will make your mouth water. Plus, these varied twists on the classic can be served for breakfast, brunch, lunch, appetizers, dinner, you name it — they are delicious anytime, anywhere. And, take note, they all include tomato! LOL Enjoy the celebration…

BLT Recipe Ideas – Twist on the Classic

Fried Green Tomato BLT from Julie and Debbie @ Cooks With Cocktails

“This fried green tomato BLT is made with buttery toasted bread, smoky bacon, crisp lettuce, juicy fried green tomatoes, and a zesty balsamic garlic mayo.

 

BLT Bruschetta from Allyson @ Domestic Superhero

“everyone goes crazy over bacon, and this spin on traditional bruschetta is just so easy and tasty!”

 

BLT Pizza from Bev @ Bev Cooks

“And as if the crust wasn’t enough to do me in, I topped the whole dern thing with a BLT. Should we take a moment of silence?”

 

BLT Roll Ups from Kelly @ Mostly Homemade Mom

“This amazingly easy appetizer blends cream cheese, mayo, bacon, tomatoes, and lettuce in sliced wraps for a fresh take on the classic BLT!”

 

Grilled BLT Kabobs from Cade and Carrian @ Oh, Sweet Basil

“If you thought you loved a fat, juicy BLT sandwich you’re going to go nuts for these grilled BLT kabobs with a garlic aioli drizzle!”

 

BLT Pasta Salad from Brandie @ The Country Cook

“When I saw this recipe for BLT Macaroni Salad, I knew that I had to make it!”

 

BLT Bites Recipe from Ronique @ Stagetecture

“…try this twist on the traditional bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwich with these BLT bites that combine bacon, tomatoes, and more yummy ingredients.”

 

Breakfast BLT from right here on Life With Lorelai

“I decided to just go for it and make a BLT on the Buttermilk Biscuits… they were AMAZING!”

 

BLT Summer Roll from Vicky @ Avocado Pesto

“The classic BLT reconstructed and offered in new form — BLT Summer Roll recipe with Avocado”

 

Bacon, Lettuce, and Tomato Grilled Cheese Sandwich from Liz @ Pocket Change Gourmet

“There once was a grilled cheese sandwich that longed to be exciting, to be full of flavor and added crunch. And then along came the Bacon, Lettuce, and Tomato Grilled Cheese Sandwich.”

 

BLT Cole Slaw from Michelle @ The Whole Smiths

“…the perfect dish to take to any summer gathering that EVERYBODY will love… a BLT Cole Slaw.”

 

BLT Chicken Caesar Salad Wrap from Trish @ Mom On Timeout

“This BLT Chicken Caesar Salad Wrap has all the makings to become your new go-to recipe!”

 

Rachel Hollis’ BLT Bites from Cathy @ She Paused For Thought

“This simple recipe can be customized to your personal preference. I prefer to use sourdough bread, freshly made aioli & Romaine lettuce. Turkey bacon or Veggie Bacon is also a good option if you don’t eat pork.”

 

French Toast BLTs from Jaymee @ E Is For Eat

“It’s bacon. And french toast. What more do you need in a breakfast food?”

 

BLT Quesadillas from Nick @ Macheesmo

“…put a BLT twist on a simple Tex-Mex quesadilla.”

I hope you have enjoyed these tempting recipes that re-imagine the classic bacon, lettuce, and tomato.

  • Chop Tomatoes (I used our homegrown regular sized tomatoes, but you could use grape or pearl tomatoes), Red Onion, and Italian Parsley.
  • Place all chopped vegetables and herbs into a large bowl.
Couscous

Directions

  • Bring Asparagus Water back to a boil.
  • In a skillet, add the Olive Oil and the Couscous (my box had about 1-1/2 Cups of couscous). Toast the couscous until lightly golden.
  • Follow the directions on your couscous box for how much Boiling Water to use. the asparagus water will add extra flavor.
  • Bring couscous to a boil.
  • Reduce heat to a simmer, and cover couscous.
  • Simmer for about 10-12 minutes or until couscous has soaked up all of the water. If it sticks to the pan a little, you can add a tiny bit more of the asparagus water to loosen the couscous from the pan.
  • Add the couscous to the other salad ingredients in the bowl, Salt and Pepper to taste.

Serving Suggestions

  • Serve the Salmon Kabobs hot off the grill.
  • The Lemon Asparagus Couscous Salad with Tomatoes can be served directly after making, at room temperature, or chilled.
  • We rounded out the meal with fresh sliced Avocado.
  • Leftover salmon can be added to the couscous salad for a delicious lunch the next day. Warm the salmon or use it cold.

Sour Cream, Cilantro and Parsley Potatoes on the Grill – Printable Recipe

Sour Cream, Cilantro and Parsley Potatoes on the Grill

Sour Cream, Cilantro and Parsley Potatoes on the Grill

Last week when Luke and I barbecued our Citrus, Chili, Cilantro Chicken, we made these delicious potatoes to go with it. You are going to love this simple recipe!

Ingredients~

  • 1 Bag Red Potatoes
  • Cilantro
  • Italian Flat Leaf Parsley
  • 2 Tsp. Butter
  • 1 Tsp. Sour Cream
  • Coarse Sea Salt to taste
  • Freshly Ground Pepper
  • 3/4 to 1 Cup Sour Cream

Directions~

Potatoes
Wash Potatoes and cut into bite-sized chunks. Place Potato chunks on a large sheet of Heavy Duty Aluminum Foil. Chop Cilantro and Parsley (you will use this for the potatoes and the sauce). Put a heaping handful of both Herbs on the potatoes. Add Butter and 1 Tsp. Sour Cream on top of potatoes and herbs. Salt and Pepper to taste. Give a light mix of ingredients with your hands so you don’t rip foil (butter and sour cream will not be thoroughly mixed).


Making the Packet: Pull long sides of foil loosely up around potatoes so the edges meet at the top. Fold over the edges to seal (don’t make this tight to the potatoes). Then pull up and fold in the sides to seal them.

Place your Potato Packet on the top rack of your Grill. They will take about 40-50 minutes to cook.


Sauce
Add remaining Cilantro and Parsley to 3/4 to 1 Cup of Sour Cream, stir to combine. Refrigerate until serving.

Serving~

I top the grilled potatoes with a dollop of the herb sauce, and leave the rest of the sauce on the side for people to add to their taste.

The flavors in this dish are amazing…enjoy!
