In this issue: The Big Game Tips and Savings

What is your favorite easy snack to prepare for your family during game time?


Tip #1 from Stacey in Tempe, AZ

Salty treats are always the best for football games. One thing we like to do is come up with interesting new variations of Chex mix and surprise our friends with a unique flavor. We always start with a basic Chex mix of cereal, pretzels, and unsalted peanuts. Then we let our imaginations take over. One year we added garlic salt, shredded parmesan cheese and oregano. It was awesome!

Tip #2 from Todd in Edwardsburg, MI

Take whole wheat or rye bread, and make your favorite sandwiches. Then use a knife to shape the sandwich in the shape of a football. Place onion slices on top to look like the strings of the football. Looks like catering, but far less expensive!

Tip #3 from Barbara in Ulster Park, NY

Popcorn! Who doesn't love popcorn? You can use the kernels, or buy the low fat microwave ones. The kids love helping setting the time on the microwave!

Tip #4 from Lauren in Delphos, OH

I use my kids' favorite cereals to make all sorts of game treats. I like to eat Lucky Charms right out of the box. Cocoa Puffs work well with melted marshmallows. And for good measure, we always have a bowl of Cheerios!
