It’s that time of the year again. When the sweet aroma of baseball begins to hit our senses and remind us of what true sport is all about. I am sure you guys have big plans for the wiffle and baseball seasons. I must say I am personally excited for the season to start, I think this is the year my Cubbies finally break through. Even if that is not the case, I am sure this will be another exciting season.
As you know, I recently started my cooking blog http://www.gustodelmondo.blogspot.com and it has been a blast since inception. Tonight I decided I would cook a couple of good baseball season appetizers, because we all know baseball and wiffle ball are not the same without the foods that accompany them. I included two recipes below and hope that you guys can take what I have written down and enjoy the food, the season and most of all the beautiful sport that we all know and love, baseball.
Have a great season and best of luck.
