Do you love game day?? Do you love football??
I absolutely LOVE football & game day is what we all look forward to all week long in our house. Whether it’s college or NFL we REALLY LOVE watching our favorite teams each weekend. I spend all week planning out just what we will make for snacks. Appetizers & munchy, snacky foods are in full spread here. I like to spend my Fridays preparing the house. That means washing the pillows & throw blankets on the sofa to freshen them up, decorating with our favorite team colors & inviting guests over for the game.
What’s on the menu this coming Game Day??
These Crock Pot Brownies. So simple- I can whip up the batter- pop them in the crock pot & let them cook while I work on the rest of the goodies.
I love that they cook in the crock pot so I have my oven available for the other things I’m preparing.
*Note – Start cooking on high but reduce to low when you start seeing the sides looking more cooked. They will burn before the center has a chance to finish cooking if you leave it on high the whole time. Since all slow cookers cook a little different it’s hard to say exactly how long this will take or when you should do this. Just keep an eye on it – checking them periodically throughout the process.
When the guests show up I like the house smells to smell fresh & clean. I’m super excited about the new Tide Plus Febreze Freshness Sport. I used it on the pillows & blankets in the family room & it made the house smell fresh. It’s also perfect for the dog’s pillow cover. That really needs freshening before guests can arrive. I have mentioned before just how much I love using Tide products. All the varieties smell so amazing & I really do feel like I’m taking the best care of my fabrics by using it. I truly believe that it’s the best I can buy & my fabrics will last longer because of it.
As everyone is arriving I prepare the snacks while we chat & watch kick off. I like to put the brownies in the crock pot around kick off time. OMG-the smell through the house is heavenly & by the time we reach the really heated part of the game- the brownies are done & everyone is happy. You have got to give them a try. No one will believe they were cooked in your crock pot.
So that’s how we spend our weekends in the fall.
What’s a creative way you prepare for game day??
