I’ve been talking a lot about the big game. In fact, this whole week has sort of been on that theme.
Football aside, one of our favorite parts of the game is watching the commercials. We get a huge kick out of them.
We’re also looking forward to an afternoon of yummy snacks.
You can’t really have a super game without some super snacks.
And what’s better than Cheeseburger Meatballs with Fry Sauce?!
The meatballs have all of the great flavors of a hamburger packed into a little meatball, and the fry sauce is delicious!
If you’ve never had it, it is so good! You’ll love it!
