Football season is here… and it wouldn’t be the same without awesome food, am I right?
Unfortunately, fall also means it’s back to school season, so things can get a little hectic. (And by a little, I mean a lot!) You’ve got lunches to pack, dinners to make, and about a million other things to do…. Luckily, there are tons of easy dishes you can make to give everyone the energy they need to root on their team!
I love how food brings people together (regardless of what team they’re cheering for), and I couldn’t imagine a game day without food. Even though I’m on a budget (and pressed for time) I always whip up special snacks and stock the house with our fan favs. Here’s what we’re chowing down on, on game day:
Game day just wouldn’t be complete without refreshing Dr Pepper on hand. I make sure to head to my local Albertsons and stock up before game day rolls around.
Bonus: Dr Pepper doesn’t just taste good… it also looks good and allows you to show off your team spirit thanks to a special offer (more on that in a minute).
Have you seen the new college football Dr Pepper cans? They’re sure to help your family get in the football spirit. The cans are basically designed to look like a football with laces and everything. If you haven’t seen them yet run down the field to Albertsons store and take a look. 🙂
These jalapeño poppers, complete with bacon, are how I spice up game day. You can eat them with your fingers (although I recommend keeping napkins on hand), so they’re great for tailgating events.
These homemade jalapeño poppers only call for 7 ingredients and come together in 5 easy steps so you won’t miss a single play of the game!
Mac and Cheese Bites
An ooey-gooey cheesy snack… what’s not to love? This recipe for mac and cheese bites is too good to resist. (I apologize in advance to your diet.)
They’re even approved by picky little eaters (like my son) so they’re a snack the whole family can enjoy!
Coconut Oil Popcorn
Who says popcorn is just for movies? I love snacking on popcorn during the big game. This coconut oil popcorn is easy, delicious, and actually good for you unlike many game day options!
Feeling like you need a lot of ingredients? No worries, you can get everything you need for game day in one place: Albertsons stores. Albertsons also carries non-food items including paper products like napkins (and every mom knows you can never have enough of those, right?).
Now, back to Dr Pepper and their special offer… trust me, you don’t want to fumble this one! 🙂
