Fun Game Idea by Oh So Antsy

I have Jessica from Oh So Antsy here today! She’s going to share a game she plays with her boyfriend that make a trip to the grocery store more fun. I really like this idea because grocery shopping is NOT our favorite thing to do. (Which is why our fridge is empty right now) Definitely going to give this a try! Here’s Jessica:

“Wanna play a game? This is something that’s said in our house a lot, mostly by Walker (the boyfriend). He loves games and loves it even more when I agree to play. Right now Dominion and backgammon have been on heavy rotation.

For a recent date night (it was actual Valentine’s Day) we had a scavenger hunt at the grocery store. Here’s how it worked. I assigned him an appetizer and I chose the main meal. We both, secretly, wrote down what ingredients we needed and then turned each one into a series of clues or puzzles. Here are a few examples:

A couple of my clues:

1. I am red
2. I come in many varieties
3. I belong to a dangerous family

1. I come fresh or in a block
2. In some cases I’m considered stringy
3. I am white

(I needed tomatoes and mozzarella to make pesto pizza)

A couple of Walker’s clues:

1. A “sexy” veggie
2. “long” and “ridged” and “bumpy”
3. Good with gin

1. Sounds like a winter Olympic sport
2. My favorite colored tank top
3. These babies of the mama line up in a row
4. You wouldn’t want to “bone” this guy
5. One ugly swimmer

(He needed cucumber and salmon to make marinated salmon on top of cucumbers and blue potato slices)

Fun right?! We double checked each other’s baskets and headed home after checking out. We still didn’t know what the other was cooking until it was ready to eat – quite the mysterious dinner. I can’t wait to do it again maybe with some variation – what about a breakfast or a dessert hunt? Do you have any ideas? Come on over to my blog and share them!”
