Game Seven

So it’s currently half time during game seven of the NBA finals. Who do you guys want to win? Warriors and Celtics are my team, but I’m going for the ‘underdog’ Spurs. Miami needs to give another team a chance to win!

I spent the last half of my week hanging out with the kids again. We went to the Academy of Sciences and Exploratorium on Wednesday and Thursday, so just re-read those posts if you want a recap on how my day went. I am exhausted mentally and physically, I can’t wait until my day off on Sunday.

I ended my week long trek by taking them to the Farmer’s Market. They were craving strawberries and I needed to pick up fruits and veggies for the week, so it worked out perfectly. This one was the Mission district Farmer’s Market. They had food trucks, knick knacks and a live guitar singer to swoon all the hipster moms hanging out in the sun.

I was originally going to go to Trader Joe’s to shop snacks for the boys to watch the game, but figured I’d get everything at the Farmer’s Market to kill two birds with one stone. I had to get a little creative, but managed to get it done. I actually think things worked out perfectly!

Five Snacks To Feed Hungry Boys During Sport Finals

1. Pistachios

The garlic and onion pistachios are locally grown and tasted so fresh even though they were roasted! These are great for finger biting moments during the fourth quarter.

2. Fruits

Fruit to cleanse the palate in-between all the garlic and salty flavors. The strawberries, pluots (plums & apricot hybrid, ever heard of this?!) and plums are all from a local company, Twin Girls Farms. Strawberry season is definitely here! They were so sweet, soft and juicy.

3. Onigilly

I suppose you can’t get this everywhere, but they’re a local food truck that’s kind of like sushi wrap. I ordered the chicken, shittake mushrooms and shrimp and they boxed it home for me. All in all, they’re a fun different way to host a game day party!

3. Meatballs

I feel like these meatballs meet in the middle between healthy and a snack that the boys actually looked forward to. They were made in a tomato and basil sauce and taste delicious with the social snacker crackers from Trader Joe’s.

5. Crackers and Dip

I picked this spread out as an impulse, but they were handing out free samples and I instantly turned back and picked it up. Chips and dip are a classic party dish, but this one was pretty unique!

All the plates out, hanging out as a gang, ready to get eaten.
