When I was growing up I lived way out in the country on a farm. The first time I was at a friend’s house when they got a pizza delivered, my brain exploded. You could get food brought to your door?! Now that I’m an adult and live in a place where we can get deliveries, it still never fails to get me SO pumped when we order food. And now you can get so much more than just pizza delivered, with DoorDash.
We’ve been loving our slow weekends lately, and Ryan is teaching the kiddos about football. So instead of going out or cooking, we got some of our favorite Save Mart hot food staples delivered and spent the day watching our favorite teams battle it out. I am not exaggerating one bit when I say that Ryan and the kids were living their best lives.
Also, I realized that I should have been doing this all along. There have been so many parties where one of us had to run out and pick up the food from some place or another and it hit me like a ton of bricks that DoorDash is the answer. DUH.
The Perfect Game Day Menu
We thought it would be fun to eat platter-style and let everyone kind of graze during the course of the game, so we ordered a bunch of goodies from Save Mart that I knew we would all love. The hot food delivery options are pretty clutch because there’s everything from fresh salads to wings to sandwiches and lots more.
If you want to create a game day platter like we did, try these staples:
- Chicken Tenders
- Mac and Cheese
- Potato Wedges
- Cole Slaw
- Hummus/Olives/Pita Bread (At Save Mart it’s called the Hercules Snack Pack)
- Salad (We got Save Mart’s Moroccan Salad)
- Roasted Veggies
- Chocolate Chip Cookies
Basically, it’s key to get a little bit of everything. Those game day standards like wings are awesome, but it’s also nice to have some veggies and greens on the platter to balance it out.
To create a game day platter, start with a large dish or a few dishes if you don’t have a big platter handy. Fill it up by starting with the bigger items (wings, tenders, etc.) and placing them on your dish in sections. If you have things that need to be in bowls, nestle the bowls between these bigger sections. Finish the platter by filling any empty spaces with smaller items like handfuls of chips or some veggies.
Set out your platters, some dishes and napkins, and enjoy the game!
I think we’re going to end up using DoorDash for Henry’s birthday party next week as well; it’s the perfect solution for getting food sent to your door from your favorite places. I learned that it’s available in over 4,000 cities (crazy!), so hopefully it’s in your neck of the woods too. You can thank me later when dinner shows up at your doorstep. 😉 xoxo
