Football = Food?

I had been trying to figure out what exactly triggered my desire to cook and bake nearly everything over Labor Day weekend.

It wasn't the desire to warm my house up with the oven on given the wonderful warm weather we have been enjoying. It isn't fall yet.

I am starting to think it is the mere mention of football that sends me into a cooking frenzy.

Last weekend, my alma mater (University of Colorado) stomped its rival (Colorado State). I barely got my pumpkin bread out of the oven in time for the game.

NFL regular season games start this weekend and I have a list of things I want to cook.

And I am waiting for the first cool fall Sunday where making chili won’t be viewed as an “Are you nuts?” thing.

Anyone else have this same problem? What triggers the cooking bug for you? Or do you even cook?
