The "Sweet 16" is around the corner, so I thought I'd share some good game time recipe options from the site. Whether it's a simple snack, a more filling main course, or a refreshing drink you're looking for, there should be something for just about everyone.
I lived in Indiana my whole childhood through high school, but we moved to major Hoosier Country when I was in eighth grade. In Dubois Co., Big Red was the drink of choice, there was a basketball goal in practically every driveway, and Larry Byrd was a common household name.
Friday nights at Memorial Gym were some of the best I remember... smelling the popcorn, playing in the pep band, circling the top while hanging out with my best friend, Ang'. There were numerous heart-stopping, down-to-the-wire shoot-outs, and our Southridge Raiders made the trek to State more than once. I loved my time there, and that is where I learned to love basketball as well. Little did I know just a handful of years later, I'd marry a coach and spend even more time in small and large gyms throughout Indiana and Tennessee cheering on the teams and my husband.
It goes without saying, tomorrow night at 8:45 will be big-time exciting in our house. IU will take on Syracuse in style, I assure you. And, by the way. If any of you are rooting for the Orange, make sure you have some good grub in hand.
It'll make the loss a little easier to swallow...
