Olé, Olé, Olé, Olé
The Summer of Soccer has officially begun and we couldn’t be more excited. Sadly Team U.S.A. won’t be playing in Russia but we are so proud that after 36 years, Peru is finally back in the games. So this year is extra special for this American-Indonesian-Peruvian-Russian family and we’re celebrating big with Cost Plus World Market – the Summer of Soccer shopper’s one-stop shop for entertaining, decorating and food/drink needs at any budget.
These soccer matches bring the World together – so this is also a great opportunity for me to teach my kids about all the different countries participating. After all, they share the same love for the sport and soccer season is just around the corner for them…this year, Ronan is finally old enough to join Pee Wee Soccer! Eek.
Food Ideas for a Summer of Soccer Party
Cost Plus World Market is known for its eclectic assortment of unique and authentic food items from around the world. AND I found lots of Peruvian goodies to help create our Summer of Soccer Party! My local store had an assortment of spices that my Peruvian dishes needed, as well as foods from the region, like quinoa and fun decorative decor, like llamas. You can check out my shopping experience in my Highlighted stories on my Instagram profile.
I kept our party foods simple, easy to make and most importantly kid-friendly. I served Peruvian Oven Roasted Drumsticks with Aji Verde Sauce, Corn on the Cob, Quinoa, and for dessert, Arroz con Leche (rice pudding).
