Stadium Status: Baseball Themed Food


By Kimberly Gamble

Whether you’re cheering for the Yankees or the Red Sox, one thing every fan will leave the seventh inning stretch for is a much-needed snack. Face it, it’s physically impossible to root on your favorite team without food.

An important factor for game food is that it has to be easy to eat. Finger foods are always a great choice. I mean, in what context would you actually choose utensils over hands if given the choice? Trust us, your guests will thank you.

Instead of slaving away all day in the kitchen, here are some quick and interesting recipes to try —

Garlic Fries


32 oz of unsalted french fries

3 tbsp of vegetable oil

6 cloves of garlic, grated

3 tbsp of finely chopped fresh parsley

Salt and pepper



Bake the French fries according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a small skillet, heat the oil over medium-low. Add the garlic and cook for about two minutes or until golden.

Toss the fries with the garlic oil and parsley, then season with salt and pepper

Pop Fly popcorn


10 to 12 cups of popped popcorn

1 cup of pecan halves

1 cup of slivered almonds

1 1/3 cup of sugar

1 cup of butter

½ cup of light corn syrup

1 tsp of vanilla extract

½ tsp of cream of tartar

½ tsp of baking soda



In a large bowl, combine popcorn nuts and set aside. In a large saucepan, bring sugar butter and corn syrup to a boil. Boil for five minutes, stirring occasionally.

Remove from the head and add vanilla, cream of tartar, and baking soda. Drizzle over popcorn mixture and stir to coat. Immediately spread onto two greased baking sheets and let dry for about one hour. Store in an airtight container.
