Hey, ya'll! Orange is the New Black is here! Orange is the New Black is here! Everyone's favorite Netflix original series released their 5th season yesterday which means half of the world is going to be holed up in their houses watching the drama unfold for the girls of Litchfield Prison.
I'm telling ya'll, there is nothing better than throwing a pair of yoga pants on, tossing your hair up in a messy bun while watching your favorite show with your favorite snacks. Ashley and I left for our trip to Seattle, Alaska and western Canada today so we decided to wait until we get back before we take the plunge and watch OITNB. We're going to do it up big when we get back! I already have all of our snacks planned out for our OITNB marathon. Here are some of our favorite TV munchies:
I love, love, love fresh fruit! One of my favorite things to do is chop of some strawberries, pineapple, grapes, apples and oranges and serve up a delicious bowl of The Best Damn Fruit Dip.
At some point in your marathon you're going to need an energy boost. When the coffee fails you, there's always my Mama's Tired Energy Bars. These peanut butter and chocolate oatmeal bars are jam packed with protein to give you the stamina you need to get through a few more episodes!
Speaking of protein, I love these Ham & Cheese Roll Ups! They are filled with salty ham and goey cheese and they are the perfect snack for binge watching your favorite Netflix show.
Of course, you can't have a television marathon without dip. My Slammin' Queso dip is a tortilla chips best-friend. This dip is filled with creamy, spicy cheese, delicious ground sausage, peppers and tomatoes. It's seriously so good that you'll want to lick the bowl clean.
If sausage isn't your thing, try out this Warm Chili Cheese Dip, a combination of hearty chili, spicy pepper jack cheese, smooth cream cheese all topped with fresh green onions.
One thing that we'll definitely be munching on while getting caught up with Piper, Alex and the gang is my Nana's No Bake Ranch Flavored Oyster Crackers. This has been one of my favorite snacks since I was a little girl and is perfect to toss back while watching TV.
Lastly, what's a marathon without a big bowl of popcorn? Step up your popcorn game by setting up a popcorn and candy bar so you and your favorite people can mix up their favorite combinations of salty and sweet!.
And there you have it! Some of my favorite foods to munch on while binge watching shows on Netflix. What are your favorites?
