‘Team Color’ Ice Cubes
What better way to offer an enticing, crunchy, hydrating bite than in team themed ice cubes you can toss to your pup as soon as your team scores a touchdown? Make two sets of competing team colors so you can pick and choose which ones for your pups to catch mid-air when things either go or don’t go your way during the game.
Get your spare ice cube trays out.
- You’ll need cut up strawberries, lemons, corn, apples (yellow, green, or gold- depending on team) and blueberries, (If you needed more green) mint leaves also work great and freshen breathe for you and your dog.

icecube tray, cover with water and freeze for 2-3 hours prior to game time.
- Bonus: Can also be
greatgarnish for human cocktails.
Sweet Potato ‘Skins’
Save your sweet potato skins the week prior to the game. Keep them in a Ziploc bag and refrigerate them until game day.
Eggs are delicious. And if you love deviled eggs then this recipe is sure to be a winner for both man and mutt.

- Put in eggs in the Fridge for 1 hour to cool.
