Watching the football game at home can be fun with good food, picnic-style, and a fun projector in the backyard. No matter how you watch the game this year, it can still be perfect with a few thoughtful touches.
We love watching high school and college football games in the fall. There is an excitement in the air when everyone in town is dressed in our university colors on game day.
I love when the air starts feeling crisp and we can hear the games over the loud speaker at the High school that is close to our home. It is magical.
While this year may look a little bit different, we will still be making it fun for our family! We will be streaming the games and enjoying them at home, snuggled in our cozy plaid blankets with some of our favorite game foods!
And we will most likely be wearing comfy sweats most nights if we are being honest.
One of our favorite things to do when we are watching the game is to grab our favorite foods from Albertsons. I can run in, even with all of the kids in tow, and make 3 quick and convenient stops- deli, bakery, and produce. It is the easiest way to pull together a meal so we can spend out time enjoying the game instead of preparing food.
I always grab the fresh cut fruit bowls first. Then, I grab meat and prepared salads at the deli counter like the yummy chicken wings, coleslaw and potato salad. I always grab something freshly baked from the bakery while I am there too. We love the brownies and chocolate chip cookies. We actually freeze our cookies. They are SO good that way!
I shopped at Albertsons in my local area, but you can also find quality game day food at the Albertsons Companies family of stores, including Albertsons, Safeway, ACME Markets, Jewel-Osco, Vons, Randalls, Shaw’s Supermarket, Star Market, and Tom Thumb. Albertsons also offers Grocery Delivery and Drive Up & Go™ which makes my life so much easier, especially on busy days!
My family loves a good little buffet. They load up their plates (or we also like to use these to-go boxes because they are sturdier) and we sit and watch the game while we eat. They like to be able to get refills on their own and I like not having to dish up plates a million times.
Eating picnic style in front of a projector screen (an old sheet) just makes it feel like more of an adventure and is especially exciting. Times might be a little different than usual, but with a little creativity they can be just as fun!
Watching the game outside with fresh air just feels so right.
I love how cozy and magical it feels with the patio lights over here.
I pulled a few pumpkins over just for fun as well.
What are your plans for watching football this year? Are you tailgating in a new way?
