When I was a little kid, I can remember hanging around the house on Sunday afternoons, and evenings watching football with my dad. He was always rooting for his favorite New England team and was an avid fan until the day he passed away. At the time, I didn’t really understand the game, but I knew it always meant yummy snacks, and convenient, delicious meals.
Now that I am adult, I get that 15 minutes on the game time clock can be stretched out into 1 hour regular time. I just couldn’t understand why my dad would always say there were just 15, 10, or even five minutes on the clock yet it took forever for the game to be over.
Not only do I look forward to our New England team playing, but I especially look forward to preparing easy, convenient, and delicious meals and snacks for our family to enjoy. A few favorites happen to include: Red Baron Pizza and Edward’s Dessert Pies. They are two foods I can pick up at Target in the frozen section, and prepare within minutes.
I don’t know about you, but I love a good salad with my Red Baron Pepperoni Pizza. Salads are amazing game day foods because they can easily complement a pizza, and they store well. This Pepperoni Pizza Salad was easy to make and prepare in conjunction with the pizza. Served with homemade pizza crisps, this salad is jam-packed with nutritional ingredients, and pizza fun!
The best part? My kids actually LOVE it! Making Pepperoni Pizza Salad to accompany your game day meals, snacks, or desserts is a blast! I visited my local Target store to get some fresh produce, Red Baron Pepperoni Pizza, and an Edward’s Key Lime Pie for Dessert. I wanted easy things to prep, and eat because I didn’t want to miss a single play!
