One thing about my family, we are football fans, without a doubt. Our dog is even named after the Alabama football Coach Nick Saban. So, you can be sure that not only do we celebrate during the college season but we definitely throw a season ender football party! We’ve either hosted or attended a championship football party with our friends Rich & Jamie for the last 12 years. We switch off who throws the party but regardless of who throws it, besides football, food is the star. What we never want is to be stuck in the kitchen while the game, halftime or the awesome commercials are happening. Basically, we need to be near the TV for fear we’ll miss something awesome. That’s why these simple ideas using Stouffers Party Lasagna, Hot Pockets, Edy’s Limited Edition Touchdown Sundae Ice Cream and Nestle Crunch Dipped Drumstick Cones, all found at WalMart, are perfect! They’ll get you out of the kitchen and back to the game fast!
We’re these football fans. See us up there in the stands? I’m the #1 Hot Pocket and DH is #2. We’re in the second row of the stadium. Well, that’s us if we were Hot Pockets Pepperoni Pizza with Garlic Buttery Seasoned Crust. Rich and Jamie are sitting in the front row this year. They are #4 & #5. They’re represented by Hot Pockets Ham & Cheese with Croissant Crust. I love that you can have this all set up before the game and that people can grab what they want and then go get seated. Fast & Easy = Not Missing a Minute of the Game.
How I Made the Stadium
Want to turn your friends into Hot Pockets football fans? It’s so easy. I used the Athletic Stack paper pack by DCWV. That had a sheet of those football numbers and football patterned paper in it. Perfect! First, I wrapped the Hot Pockets in parchment paper then added strips of the football pattern and a number. Done! I went into my pantry, dumped out all of my gravy and dried soup packets and took the tiered cabinet organizer they were in for my stadium. All I did to it was add twine and punch out little pieces of scrap paper using banner paper punches like I used here and here. I used Glue Dots to stick the banner to the organizer and stadium seating was born! Touchdown!
I got it all at Walmart! I was so glad I was there because I was able get all of this food and pick up a pair of rain boots that I needed for taking Saban out. I’m super happy to have found them with all the rain we’ve been having! It was such a time and money saver to find them at a good price and all in one store. Whew!
Here are the players! Turn Stouffers Party Size Lasagna with Meat & Sauce into football players by dishing the cooked lasagna into large ramekins and adding cheese numbers! This is another fast, easy and yummy way to serve this football feast. Now people can just come by, grab a lasagna and a fork and get back to the game. I simply punched out provolone cheese using number cookie cutters. I had some silly fun doing it. See my “cheesy” 80’s music joke here.
Easiest football dessert ever! When it’s dessert time lay Nestle Crunch Dipped Drumstick Cones out in a football shaped serving dish. Let the dessert blitz begin!
Another great way to thrill a crowd and make it back to the game without missing a minute is to make an ice cream bar using Edy’s/Dreyer’s Limited Edition Touchdown Sundae Ice Cream. Being the football fans that we are, I had this football helmet serving dish on hand. We put the Edy’s ice cream in the helmet on top of some blue ice while still in its container. Keep it simple by adding yummy sides like nuts and chocolate chips or spray whipped cream. Lay your whole football spread out on clean, green outdoor carpet for a perfect game day!
Hope your Game Day is Awesome!
