Finally, the wait is over! It’s football season in the great state of Texas. Most everyone I know is involved with football in one way or another. Let’s face it, it’s a Texas way of life. Whether it’s Pee Wee, high school, college or professional, we all have our favorite teams.
My house bleeds maroon. I grew up in Waco, home of the Baylor Bears, and I graduated from Stephen F. Austin in the deep piney woods of East Texas. But from a very young age, I can recall waking up to the Aggie War Hymn playing over my dad’s home stereo in preparation of the game of the day. Now, Butters’ memories may be a little different. She’ll probably remember putting on her favorite maroon dress and helping her mommy make game day treats.

How many of you have a Junior League cookbook from somewhere in the world? I have about two dozen from different places–Amarillo, Denver, New Orleans and Tyler, just to name a few. There is just something about the recipes in Junior League cookbooks–the attention to detail, the time-honored traditions, the beautiful photos. These ladies know what they’re doing!

Table Top would like to thank Texas Farm Bureau’s Matt Felder for this guest post about the Junior League’s Kids in the Kitchen program. Matt is field editor for TFB’s publications.
Nationally, about one in seven children are obese, and that statistic increases to nearly one in three children in Texas. But that’s something the Junior League of San Antonio—and many other Junior Leagues across the Lone Star State—is hoping to change through its Kids in the Kitchen program.
