OK, not this Chuckwagon (but go ahead, tap your feet):
but the Deli Express Chuckwagon!
It was created in 1961. Back in the day, it came with mustard and two pickles—but otherwise, that yummy ham and melty cheese and soft, pillowy bun make up what is one of Deli Express’ top-selling sandwiches.
Don’t you need one today? Of course you do.
6 Tips for Tailgating Season
It’s that time of year—football season! Are you ready to tailgate? Here are some tips to get game day off to a great start!
- Plan for the weather. Fall is tricky. Will it be hot? Cold? Sunny? Rainy (or even possibly, snowy)? Check the forecast the day before and prepare: Do you need blankets or sunblock?
- Bringing the kids? Then bring kids’ activities. The younger the children, the less likely they’re going to want to trade sports stats for hours before the game begins.
- Invest in erasable chalk and markers. And go to town proclaiming your loyalty to your favorite team all over your car windows (the erasable chalk ink markers wash right off).
- Decorate everything. Basic terra cotta planters can be painted your team’s colors, and then used to hold everything from munchies to silverware. Use paint or colored duct tape to adorn your coolers. Face paint can decorate—well—faces. And who doesn’t like to decorate cookies?
- Bring plenty of trash bags. Not only will they help you be a model citizen by cleaning up after yourself, they can be repurposed into rain ponchos if there’s an unexpected downpour.
- Make the cooking easy. Enjoy your tailgating even more by bringing Deli Express sandwiches, so you can sit back, relax, and wait for the game to start. Simply buy the night before, cut them into snack-sized bites and load them on a platter. Bring your favorite condiments so everyone can make their own sandwich masterpieces while you smile, knowing how easy it was.
5 Tips for the End of Summer
It’s almost the end of summer. Days are getting shorter, stores are offering back-to-school sales. But there’s still time to make the most of this glorious season.
- Go where you haven’t been, do what you haven’t done. Where haven’t you explored and what haven’t you tried? Rock climbing at a state park an hour away? New exhibit at a museum or zoo? Outdoor yoga class? End the summer by doing and/or seeing something new.
- If it’s been a busy summer, relax. Summer can be crazy, especially if you have kids in summer sports. So if it feels like summer whooshed right by, carve out some time before school starts to just relax. Have a family barbecue in the backyard, complete with card games and a bonfire to toast marshmallows. You could even pitch a tent for some low-stress backyard camping. Pro tip: Make it a digital-free event.
- Yard games. Badminton, volleyball, slip ‘n’ slides, even water balloons—what can you do that’s silly and fun and doesn’t take more effort than going out your own door?
- Enjoy the sun. Take some time and enjoy the sun, either while it’s rising or setting. In fact, if you don’t normally watch the sun rise, give it a try—it’s a great way to start a day.
- Go on a picnic. Outdoor meals always taste better. Go to a local park or nature preserve along with your water bottle, some fruit, and your family’s favorite Deli Express sandwiches to make things easy. Then relax and enjoy your surroundings.
