The Braves have worked very hard to include a fun space for our kids! As with the rest of the ballpark, this area has been well thought out and carefully designed. Now when your kids come to a game, they will get to enjoy so many amenities that SunTrust Park has to offer. The Braves, in partnership with Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, have come up with a fabulous kids’ zone called ‘Hope and Will’s Sandlot’. It is located behind sections 151-155!
As always, there is a Braves Kids Club membership so your kids can be a part of the team! A premium membership is $25 (per membership) or there is a free membership option as well. When you buy a Premium Membership, there are several really great benefits and prizes that include a Dansby Swanson jersey and much much more. Check out all the info at Braves.com/kids.
And be on the lookout about how you can reserve your times in advance for all the fun games and activities you will see here.
In the meantime, let me show you around….
Thanks for letting me show you around the Kids’ area! It’s going to be a really fun season!
Always on the run? Here is another quick 10 minute meal. This time, yummy Quesadillas! A crowd pleaser for sure!
You will need:
a package of large flour tortillas
1 lb. of ground beef or ground turkey
shredded cheese of your liking. I like Mozzerella, Cheddar, Mexican style
diced tomato, if desired
sour cream, salsa, guacamole, used as dips
Brown ground beef or ground turkey, your choice! As your meat is cooking, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and minced onions.
When your meat is all cooked… drain. While your meat is draining in a separate drainer, wipe the excess grease out of your skillet with a clean cloth or paper towels, careful not to burn yourself.
Spray skillet with non-stick spray. On low/medium heat, add a tortilla in the skillet, spread the cheese FIRST, this will help everything adhere. Top with meat, sprinkle AGAIN with shredded cheese on the other side of the meat, and diced tomato, if desired. Place another tortilla on top of the meat mixture and spray with non-stick spray (for flavor and to keep it from getting too dry). Cook on Low/Medium Heat for 3-4 minutes until all has melded together, pressing with your spatula so everything will stick together. Tortillas should be sticking to the meat mixture, compliments of the cheese.
Remove from skillet and put on a plate…cut quesadillas into quarters or eighths, depending on who you need to feed. If you need to cook more, just repeat steps above.
My family loves these so I will make the first large quesadilla and put in the oven to keep warm while I am cooking the second. This way everything is warm at the same time.
I love to serve this with tortilla chips and sour cream, salsa, and/or guacamole for dipping.
You can get super fancy with this and serve with rice, beans, tortilla chips, etc. This is also a very simple, quick, filling way to get some protein into your kids after those practices or during the weekend when you are at home watching your favorite sporting event.
