Here are some recipes for the Big Game

When it comes to parties for the Big Game, food and football go hand and hand! Traditional game day eats tend to be all-American: think wings, hot dogs, hamburgers, basically, if you can grill it, you can eat it! If you’re up to thinking outside of the box, spice up your menu with these fun recipes that you can try to spice up your menu with. Game day foods usually tend to not be so forgiving to your waistline. With that in mind, it is possible to eat healthy and be festive. Check out these 25 recipes for healthy game day meals!

Grilling

From corn on the cob to a juicy burger, the taste of off-the-grill food is just better. If you’re going to grill for the Big Game, propane is the way to go. A previous post on propane grilling tips gives us the run down on how to properly cook meats and veggies. Remember, grilling accessories can be your friends. Some accessories include a meat thermometer for grilling or a grilling basket for veggies. Also, don’t forget to fill your propane tank before the Big Game – you can find a refilling station here.

TVs

Are you a super fan? You know one of those fans who doesn’t want to miss a second of the game? If that’s you, you might be streaming the Big Game from multiple TVs in your home.  If you’re borrowing a flat screen TV from a friend, make sure it’s packed and secured well during transport.

Make a Game Out of It

Creating a Bingo Game for The Big Game

Creating a Game Day Bingo Board is a great way for those that need a little push when it comes to enjoying football games. Gather those  leftover moving supplies such as cardboard and packing peanuts, pick up some markers, a pair of scissors and create a bingo board. The great thing about this game is that you can have fun with it! Create 24 football-related tiles (plus a free space if you’re generous). Label your tiles with calls such as “personal foul” or game moments such as an interception. Mix in some tiles related to popular commercials and you have something for everyone! Play along the standard Bingo guidelines and decide if your group is going to connect markers, or in our case, packing peanuts, vertically, horizontally or diagonally. Enjoy!
