College Basketball Game Day Ideas & $50 Food Lion Giveaway

I don’t know about your family, but mine is a little obsessed with the big college basketball games held in March. In fact, my mother has a story about being in labor with my youngest brother on the night of the final game. He was born at 10:35 p.m. and she’ll let you know how much the doctors and my dad were paying attention to her…lol.

Or did I mention the fact that both my father and husband have TVs in their office… mostly because of this one month of basketball games?! In fact, my Dad teases us that our oldest child is named after the Duke Basketball stadium, which happens to be Hubby’s favorite team. Do you know what this is? (hint: I call him C’Man on the blog).

Enough with my stories. The games always require food while we watch. General Mills has partnered with Food Lion®for a big sale this month, so we are headed there to get some ideas!

College Basketball Game Day Ideas:

Nachos.  We love oven baked nachos. Grab some chips and use some Old El Paso® refried beans and cover with oooy gooey cheese. yummm.

Minion Munch Chex Mix. Remember this Despicable Me snack? Use Honey Nut Cheerios® and Chex® to make a fun activity for the kids to stir together!

Make Your Own Sundaes. You can never go wrong with a little Haagen-Dazs® ice cream. Am I right? Add a little Cascadian Farms® granola on top!

Breakfast for Dinner. Or save your granola to sprinkle on Yoplait® yogurt. Don’t forget to bake some Pillsbury® cinnamon rolls on the side.

Chips and Dip! They are a must and I’ve shared with you my love for Green Giant’s® Sweet Potato Chips. So salty good that you may not even need the dip. ;)
