Texas Trash Party Mix #FootballFood #FoodnFlix


Are you ready for some football?

I come from a long line of Packers fans (Dude is following tradition) and Hubs is a Lions fan, but Spud jumped ship and is a huge Vikings fan!  Did you catch last night’s game?!?  It was crazy!!!  Even us non-Viking fans were cheering by the end!

Speaking of football, have you started planning SuperBowl snacks yet?

The ladies at Festive Foodies decided to share some of our favorite football food to help inspire your SuperBowl spread this year.


And because I promised, I am also sharing my 2nd Wreck-It Ralph recipe for Food n Flix today!  Head back here for the announcement and here for my first recipe: Sugar Rush Jell-o Shots!


So how do football food and Wreck-It Ralph come together?

When I was brainstorming recipes to bring to the Disney party I mentioned in the last post (go check out our costumes!) I really wanted to bring something that wasn’t a pile of sugar…tough to do when most of the food in the movie is candy.  So, it was time to get creative.

Early in the movie, Ralph mentions that he lives in the dump.  Here’s a clip: 


Dump got me thinking about trash and that eventually got me to Texas Trash.  Which, incidentally is almost identical to my mom recipe for Chex Mix (and it’s super delicious and addicting) and perfect for the theme.

Can’t you just see Ralph settling in to a pile of this mix?



Plus, it’s perfect for any game day event (I sent this batch to Cub Scout Winter Camp with my boys last week!)  Yum!
