Growing up in New York, there are not many Viking fans. But my husband is one. Now as a family of 4, we all are.
I am not an avid sports fan by any means. What I am a fan of, is an excuse to make delicious snacks all day, hang out with friends and family, and let’s be honest for having a few beers on a Sunday 🙂
Last Sunday, as the time ticked down on the clock…I could see it. As my husband sat in the corner of the room, crouched on top of the kid’s toy chest. Cursing and mumbling to himself. Making offensive hand gestures to invisible people. I thought. This is it. Brace yourself for an ugly week ahead girlfriend!
Last play of the game. I held my breath. The ball sailed through the air. HE COULD GO ALL THE WAY! We are off to the championship!!!!!!
Time to go out and celebrate the big win! Just kidding we have kids so we’ll be cooking, baking, and doing crafts. We will only eat purple and yellow foods!
We gotta keep the good mojo going all week to prepare for the big game.
| Two of each not needed…wasn’t sure if we were going to make double batch!
Rice Krispie Football Jerseys
4 tablespoons of butter
5 cups of marshmallows
6 cups of rice krispies
Step 1: Melt the butter in a nonstick pot. (regular is fine but nonstick will make life so much easier!)
Step 2: Add the marshmallows and keep mixing until smooth.
Step 3: Add the food coloring. (I mixed the food coloring with a little water because I wanted to lighten up the color)
Step 4: Turn off the heat and mix in the rice krispies.
Step 5: Pour onto a baking sheet and flatten as much as you can.
|My daugher still wanted to “sprinkle” after we were finished. Also, the tray was too big oops.|
I cheated and used a cookie cutter to make my football jerseys.
Then time to decorate.
The rice krispies make it a little harder to decorate because it is a rocky surface. But I still think they came out pretty good.
We are ready for the ‘ship boys!!!
