Australians are very passionate about sports, especially Australian Football League which is probably the nation’s favorite ball game. In fact, it’s such a popular sport in Victoria that the day of the AFL final has just been declared a public holiday! Amazing, huh?
Now I should probably admit to the fact that I know very little about sports in general and even less about ‘Aussie rules’. That being said, I’m not one to let a holiday pass without celebrating it and since ‘sports night’ means pretzels, beers, and sliders I’m definitely into this new day-off-to-watch-the-footy-thing. Go the ‘Crocodiles’! (is this a team? I took a shot).
In preparation of the big event, I’ve rounded up some recipes which I think would be perfect for a sports night below. I’d also love to hear how you like to celebrate big games in your part of the world – do you have any favorite recipe you’d like to share? Let me know in the comments section!
