Super Bowl Party + Giveaway

The year before we got pregnant with Little Dude, Hubby and I had part of our basement finished to make a family room. It’s actually become a “man cave”: large screen TV – Xbox and Wii – surround sound system with really big speakers -  card table – a poster of dogs playing poker.

That same year we hosted our first Super Bowl Party. This will be Super Bowl party #8 for us. Even though I do most of the work preparing for our party,  I must admit I like it just as much as hubby – snack foods, funny commercials and beer.

This year’s menu, which hasn’t changed much over the years, is as follows:

We’ll also be serving some sweets like Rice Krispie Treats and brownies.

As usual, I did most of my shopping for the Big Game at Walmart. Because my Walmart doesn’t have a full grocery store, I did go to my local market for the fresh items. I always shop at Walmart to save big on my groceries.

With Walmart’s low prices, Moms can afford to host a big get-together without the stress of having to cut corners. Walmart’s game-time snacks for as low as $44 includes one package of Oscar Mayer Hot Dogs, one package of Johnsonville Bratwursts, two packages of Great Value Hot Dog Buns, two boxes of T.G.I Friday’s Frozen Appetizers, one Hormel Supreme Party Tray, a 12″ Chocolate Chunk cookie and two boxes of Nabisco Wheat Thins or Triscuit Crackers.

In addition to offering savings on snacks and groceries, Walmart offers full home entertainment installation packages ranging from $99 to $200, guaranteeing your family’s new HDTV set up works perfectly in time for the big game. (Wish there was a Walmart local to us back when we bought the big TV and surround sound system!)

Head to Walmart Game Time for creative ways to get ready for the game, tips on planning your party on a budget and great recipes. I especially like the Pre-Game Hustle game they have to play. And I’m going to try to make the Football Brownies shared on the site.
