How to Make Your Tailgate Party Better Than the Game

How to Make Your Tailgate Party Better Than the Game

Tailgating is always a fun and entertaining time, but sometimes, cooking for a crowd out of the back of your vehicle isn’t easy. To help make your tailgate party better all around, make sure you follow these tips.

Slice into your hot dogs.

Whether you’re cooking your hot dogs on a grill or on a hot plate, consider slicing them partially through, so they open like a book. This will allow them to not only cook quicker, but also become a great vehicle for tons of ketchup, mustard, and relish – maybe even some cheese and chilli!

Butter the outside of your burger and hot dog buns.

Add a touch of the unexpected by slathering the outside of your bread buns in some homemade garlic butter. Simply add garlic powder and onion powder to your butter, lather it on the bread, and grill them for a delicious extra touch to your tailgating meal.

Get a Ford EcoSport.

If there was ever the perfect tailgating vehicle, the Ford EcoSport would be it. With a number of creative organizational options to store everything from your cooler full of drinks to your fold up chairs, along with a power outlet for your equipment, this crossover is a great tool to have with you on game day.

To learn more about the Ford EcoSport, make sure you swing into L&L Motors for a test drive.

New Roosevelt Housing Program Helps Low-Income Homeowners

Roosevelt Housing Program

Owning a home isn’t always easy–especially if that home needs a bunch of repairs. Homeownership is about to get a lot easier, though, for the low-income homeowners in the Uintah Basin area, including Roosevelt.

The Housing Rehab/Replacement Home program utilizes money from community development block grants to help rehab roofs, furnaces, and other issues. If the repairs to the home are too expensive, then the program will purchase a replacement home.

To benefit from this program, there are a few requirements. Kendra Hackford, a housing specialist with the Uintah Basin Association of Governments (UBAOG), explained these qualifications: “To qualify for the program, you must own the home, own the land, and have it paid off. If they come in and need help fixing something and we see the repairs are going to cost more than half of what the house is worth, we offer a replacement home.”

If the home happens to be a mobile home from before 1978, the program offers a replacement home automatically.

Each home is purchased using a loan from the US Department of Agriculture. This loan has low interest rates, which makes it easy for low-income families to repay.

Local programs like this make us at L&L Motors proud to be part of the Roosevelt community. If you’re interested in learning more about the Roosevelt Housing Program, visit the UBAOG website at http://ubaog.org/.
