A game day party with simple and delicious food ideas that will give you more time to enjoy the game!
My Facebook newsfeed was going crazy on Sunday night, as I can imagine most everyone else’s in New England was as well. We’re down to less than two weeks for before the big game and if there’s one thing I know about football games, it’s that they’re best enjoyed with great food. Okay, everything is best enjoyed with food, am I right?
As east and west coast face off for glory, I’ll be in my kitchen cooking up some tasty food for all the football lovers. But I figured I should share those ideas with you so you can plan and prep for the
commercials big game too.
Now, I don’t know if I’ve ever told you, but I’m a bit of a sucker for french fries, like I love LOVE LOOOOVE them! But I refuse to eat the pointy ended ones, so Matt takes care of those for me ever since the first time we went out to eat together. I know, we’re cute.
Anyways, back to french fries. When it comes to frozen, there’s only one brand I turn to, Alexia. They’re a staple in our house and a great addition for game day, we use usually stop into Walmart once a week to pick. The Alexia Sweet Potato Fries are my favorite, especially when paired with marshmallow fluff, can you say YUM!
Speaking of fluff, I didn’t realize until just last week that fluffernutters were a New England thing. Seriously, if you don’t have access to fluff, you’re really missing out! If you do, have you ever tried them toasted? AHHHmazing! I could probably live off the things, but my pants would hate me and they’ve been pretty happy with me lately, so I’m trying not to mess that up.
Right, okay, back to the point. Football. I honestly don’t watch professional football, but you know I’ll use any excuse to make (and eat) food. After deciding on pulled pork sandwiches for the main course. We added some pigs in a blanket, mini eggrolls, some fries and Alexia Crispy Onion Rings to the menu.
I decided to kick things up a notch with a homemade Raspberry Honey Mustard Sauce, ever had it? It’s so good. We loved it with the Alexia Smart Classics Crinkle Cut Fries, and if I had been thinking at the time, because I clearly wasn’t, I would have loaded some on my pulled pork sandwich too! The tartness of the raspberries with sweet honey and tangy mustard is just so good.
