As the weather gets cooler and the leaves begin to change colors, thoughts often turn to ... football! And nothing is more traditionally linked to the big game than the big tailgate parties that precede them.

This month, instead of turning to the traditional burgers, hot dogs and chips, I'm offering some options that you can enjoy without having to carry around a grill -- although you certainly can do that. Enjoy them before the game and even during if you can manage to save some for that long!
