If I’m going to watch a sport, it would definitely be basketball. We live near the college my husband and I both attended. Our basketball team was really good while we were in school. In fact, we went to a basketball game for our very first date! Lucky for us they are doing really well again this year.

My kids love any excuse for a party, and for us, game day is all about the food! We love shopping at our local Kroger store (Smith’s). They’ve got a great selection of food and drinks for all our Taste of the Tournament party needs, including all the fixings for these Reese’s Muddy Buddies.
