Life with kids is always hectic, but no day is quite as hectic as Game Day! Between making sure the kids’ uniforms are clean and running from field to field, there’s hardly time to think about dinner. If you are a sports parent, you know all too well how stressful it can get. That’s why it’s vital to have a few great Game Day dinners on hand that you can whip up quickly.
Thai Celery Bowls is one such meal. It has big flavors, a bit of spice, and lots of crunch. It takes 10 minutes of prep and absolutely no cooking! Did you hear that? Absolutely NO COOKING is required for this dish. Sports parents everywhere, rejoice!
Even 10 minutes to prep a meal can be difficult to find on Game Day, though. Fret, not! All the prep work can be done the day before. Mix the bowl ingredients together and refrigerate. Place the dressing ingredients in a mason jar and refrigerate. The next evening simply shake the contents of the mason jar, pour it over the bowl ingredients, toss, and serve. Voilà… dinner is served!

I recently switched using a premium fish sauce (Red Boat, but there are others) and not looking back. Important for a dish where it’s a key flavor agent. I’ll try this on this hot evening.
