Pass the Chex Mix
Football season is in full swing. For my family, that means Fridays in the bleachers, Saturdays at the stadium (Hook ‘em, Horns!), and Sunday afternoons with the NFL playing in the background as I get ready for the week.
Everyone knows the best part about football is the food—no contest. Whether you’re watching or playing, snacks are essential, and I always set out enough to feed a small army. That’s what happens when you have four hungry kids who have lots of hungry friends.
America’s Anytime Anywhere Snack
This week, as I shared in my podcast episode with Whitney Bell, I’m making homemade Chex Mix for a bus of football players and cheerleaders who are going to an out-of-town football game. Easily shared and easily transported, this Chex Mix should keep the munchies at bay before they take the field and hopefully score some game-winning touchdowns.Print
