March Gladness in Minutes

March is upon us and for sports fans that means a full-court press of basketball bliss. Unlike other sports celebrations, March basketball viewing is a month-long event and your busy schedule may make it impossible to go all out on the food festivities every day. With that in mind, here are some simple solutions so you can spend less time in the kitchen and more time cheering on your team.

1 Lay-up Dip: Not every dip needs to have seven-layers. Start at the first step: 1 layer. Simply buy your favorite salsa or guacamole, open the package and pour it in a bowl. Bam! 1 lay-up dip. For variety, try different chips or throw in some olives.

Dunking Practice: You don’t want to lose your awesome dunking skills while watching the game. So, you’re going to practice while sitting on the couch. Buy a bag of your favorite cookies and some milk. Fill a glass with milk, grab a cookie, wait for the whistle…now dunk! Repeat until you have honed your dunking skills.

Fried Foul: Honestly, we just loved the play on words here. We could tell you how to fry the perfect chicken for your game, or you could go to our store and simply buy some fried or rotessirie chicken, maybe some sushi or ready-to-eat salads and be game-ready in minutes!

Foodcrafting Simplified: This recommendation is for the first-time foodcrafters in all of us. All you’ll need is a pie tin, cheese puffs and black licorice. Layout the black licorice in the design of basketball seams, then fill in between the lines with cheese puffs. You now have a tasty craft that will impress all your basketball buddies.
