Whether you barrack for the teams in the AFL Grand Final or not (CARN THE PIES!! From Helen), it’s an awesome day for an Aussie BBQ or shindig sharing snacks with your friends and family!
For our whole lives, GF Day has been a special one, catching up with people you may not have seen for a while, enjoying a cold one and some grub while watching (or in some cases yelling, carrying-on, boing and jeering!) the footy from the garage. Everyone chucking in some gold coins for the first goal of the quarter sweepstake. It’s a Melbourne tradition, one we hope continues for our children, and our grandchildren!
This year, although the MLTS team will be divided (not only with who we will be barracking for but also this will be the first Grand Final Day we’ve spent apart in about 13 years!) – one of us decked in black and white, nervously sitting on the edge of her chair, cheering on her beloved Pies, while the other will be supporting the Eagles just to annoy the Collingwood mob, one thing we do agree on is YUMMY FOOD is a must while watching the big game.
If you are hosting a party or taking a plate, now is the time to get organised so that your half time munchies are satisfied! We’ve collated our fave (and quick and easy!) footy snack recipes to make the pre-game prep a synch (click each one for recipe!)! Good from there, BANG GOAL!!!!
Enjoy! Happy Grand Final Day, 2018!
