Seems the lead up to every big sporting event in this country is accompanied by an endless stream of newspaper and magazine features about game day eats. But with the biggest games of all set to launch today with the Opening Ceremonies in London, I’ve been surprised by the lack of inspiration around Olympic-themed get togethers. This is exciting stuff — worth gathering family and friends around the telly (as they say in England) for some good, old-fashioned national pride. Themed eats are in order, people!
So I thought I’d share a line-up of recipes worthy of game day dining. They’re easy to make, tasty, and and unlike typical sports events fare, most are healthy enough to fuel an athlete.
I’d love to hear what you’ve got cooking for the Olympics.
Let the games begin!
P.S. I’ll be announcing the winner of the Perfect Pops giveaway next Monday, along with a recipe for a very grown up ice pop.
