Oh how I used to dread Sunday’s in the fall and winter. Erik would just plant himself on the couch at 1pm and not move until that night. Completely useless to me. BUT as the saying goes, “If you can’t beat them, join them.” And so I did. Sunday’s have an entire new meaning to me now that I have started homegating with ShopRite.
Sunday’s are for family right? Well apparently they are for football too for most of us. We might not be tailgating at the stadiums this year but we can certainly tailgate or what I like to call homegating. Whether you love routing for your home team or you are like me and could pass on the big game — there are still plenty of ways to enjoy Sunday’s with the fam and get in on watching football. One word for ya. FOOD!
Two things I don’t want to do on the weekends. Go grocery shopping or cook. Both problems solved my friends. Skip the grocery store and shop right at home from the ShopRite app by ShopRite from Home. I was able to order all my groceries and game day meals and have them all delivered right to my door. The entire store is broken down on the app into categories and you can search by brand, food type or aisle. The process couldn’t be any easier. So much faster than going to the store, shopping and waiting to check out.
As for problem number 2 — the cooking? Solved that little problem by ordering our game day meals from the app too. Everything I ordered was made right in store and fresh as can be. So many options to complete your own homegating ShopRite spread!
Our menu included:
- ShopRite chicken tenders (Summer’s favorite)
- World Class Pizza
- Sushi Roll (we eat sushi from ShopRite weekly. Always so fresh and the best selection of rolls)
- World Class Buffalo Chicken
- Bowl & Basket Frozen Meatballs (another of Summer’s favorites)
And what’s homegating with ShopRite without some chips and dip? When I went on the ShopRite fall getaway last month I told you about their Bowl & Basket line in this blog post. If you haven’t tried their Pita Chips you are seriously missing out! BEST PITA CHIPS EVAH! Goes so well with ShopRite’s Original Hummus. Of course I also love the Bowl & Basket Cheese Crackers, Jalapeno chips and Salt & Pepper chips!
Some may grab a beer but this girl always reaches for a case or two of Bowl & Basket Sparkling Water. Literally all I drink in this house!
When I’m able to save a trip to the grocery store, put out a spread like this AND spend the day with my family it’s a touchdown in my book.
Times are different. Think we all realize that by now. But no matter how things may have changed one thing has remained the same. Family. Regardless of the things going on in the world family always has and always will be the most important thing. Cherish those Sunday’s together. Cherish everyday together.
And the more kisses I can get watching football the better! My lil trio will always be my home team. I may not be routing for who is on the big screen but I’m always routing for team Leo. Thankful for homegating with ShopRite on Sundays. Good food, good company and yeah maybe, just maybe I enjoyed watching the game.
