$50 Bucks, Football, and Food

With football season in full bloom, your home has now become the stomping grounds for Sunday Football.  Food is huge component of that celebration and around here, we like finger foods vs. a meal.   I am a dedicated football fan so the last thing I want to do is cook all day. I want to be sitting on the couch, yelling at the TV and jumping up and down when a touchdown is scored so I try to come up with super easy appetizer like food for everyone to grab during game time.

This time around, I decided to let my crew have a say in what I fixed. I asked each of them what they wanted for an afternoon of football and they each had an answer.  Now to get all of that at a good price.  THAT is the challenge!  I headed to Walmart of course with my list in hand.  Items bought were:

  • 1 Family size of Fritos
  • 1 smaller Great Value bag of Fritos
  • 1 lb of jalapenos
  • 1 big can of Wold Brand Chili
  • 1 can of Rotel
  • 1 2 liter bottle of Mountain Dew
  • 2 lb of Oscar Mayer Bun Length Franks
  • 1 sour cream
  • 1 package of lil smokies
  • 2 packages of Kraft Phildelphia Cream Cheese
  • 1 package of Velveeta Slices
  • 2 packages of Pillsbury Butter Crescents
  • 2 packages of JM/Rath Bacon
  • 1 box of Capri Sun
  • 1 gallon of sweet tea
  • 6 pack of Dr. Pepper
  • 2 packages of Great Value Hot Dog Buns

Total price for all was $41.82! I kept it under $50!  Not too bad considering how much my guys can eat! Plus, there’s plenty for their friends that they invite over for the game!  That also leaves me a tad over $8 bucks to play with.

Stay tuned to see how I put it all together, including links to creative invitation ideas, the best football movies ever, halftime games,  and more!   Be sure to check out Walmart’s Game Time Kids Crafts! I love the homemade pennants!

What are some of your favorite football foods and who’s your favorite team?
