What You'll Need
Cut-up White Onion
Peanuts in a Shell
Round Tortilla Chips
We tried to be as authentic to the ballpark as possible - buying Pepsi instead of Coke, buying the peanuts from Peterson's, the same supplier the ballpark uses. A MUST is the stadium mustard - the official brand of Progressive Field! And, don't forget to cut up those onions into little cubes, not rings.
What You'll Do
|House Rule: NO peanut shells on the floor!|
Perhaps if you were sitting in the Luxury Boxseats your peanuts would be warm? I'm not sure, but at our at-home stadium, it's one of the perks. Place your peanuts in a microwave-safe bowl, wrap in a towel, and heat in your microwave until warm.
What You'll Need to Know to Finish
The speaker system we have attached to our television gives all kinds of different sound options. We changed the sound to "pavilion" and it sounded just like we were at the stadium (very echo-y). Along with the food, this helped us feel like we were there. You know the other thing that made us feel like it was baseball season, again? Losing to the New York Yankees. Let's hope it was an off night - 80 games to go!
Once the game was over, I didn't even mind the kitchen clean-up. I prefer it over the mad dash from the stadium parking lot to home. Ahhh!
