After last week's edge-of-your-seat game, where Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo saved the game, even with a broken rib and collapsed lung (some reports even said he died during the game!), this Monday's game is not one to be missed.

On Sunday, September 26, the Cowboy's play their first home game against Washington at 7:30pm. The weekend forecast is shaping up to be perfect tailgating weather -- expect it to be sunny with a high of 97 on Sunday.  Whether you are tailgating at Cowboys Stadium, or hosting or attending a tailgate party in the driveway, here are a few things to keep in mind.

Food. A tailgate party isn't a tailgate party without good, hearty eats. Bring the grill to cook up your favorite meats, and we'll take care of the rest with our  Take Away Chef  casseroles. Every man will love you if you come loaded with our home-style meals, like Mom's Favorite Meatloaf, King Ranch Chicken, along with Macaroni or Cheese and Sweet Potato Bake. Our Take Away Chef casseroles are inexpensive, easy and delicious.

LIKE us on Facebook  and we will send you a complimentary 7-Layer Mexican Dip your friends will love! When you "LIKE" us, be sure to comment on our wall with your email address.

Team colors. Don't even think about showing up to a tailgate party without sporting your team's colors. You're not out to impress anyone (ok, maybe you are), go all out in support of your favorite team. (Go Cowboys!)

Make yourself at home. Whether you're tailgating at Cowyboys Stadium, or in the driveway, be sure you've got the best seat in the house with the most comfortable seating --living room furniture, camping chairs -- you can manage to get to the party. Don't worry, nobody's going to think twice about you rolling up to the stadium with your leather sofa in the bed of your F-150.

Preseason is over and football season is officially on! This Sunday the Cowboys travel to New York to play the New York Jets. Kickoff is at 7:20pm (CST), and the game airs live on NBC. If you -- like us -- plan to celebrate the first Cowboys game of the season with a party, here are a few things you’ll want to consider.

Show your spirit. Nothing says game day like a room full of Cowboys gear. If you don’t have your Romo jersey, better get to one of the numerous stores selling Cowboy apparel before the game starts! Granted, it’s not the Superbowl, but you can still decorate for game day with blue, silver and white plates, cups and plastic utensils. Check out your neighborhood dollar store or Big Lots to save cash on game day décor. 

Make a game of it. Whether you’re a Fantasy Football player or not, offering up a friendly little wager on the game’s outcome will keep your football buddies entertained during commercials. Take bets on the final score, total yardage for the Cowboys, etc. and offer up a sweet treat as a prize to the winner.

Nothing says football season like food. You can’t have a good football party without good food. Save yourself a trip to the store for the mundane chips and salsa or veggies and dip snacks like the rest of Dallas. Check out our Take Away Chef menu for filling (and delicious) casseroles, chicken dishes, homemade lasagna, veggies and desserts. We promise our homemade meals won’t disappoint your big eaters. Call ahead and we’ll have your meals prepared for you and bring them right out to your car when you come pick them up! Best of all, our Take Away Chef meals are easy, casual and affordable. 

Join our mailing list on Facebook or our website and get a complimentary Buffalo Wings recipe ... just in time for game day!
