March Madness and Mrs.T’s!

23 Mar

“I participated in a campaign on behalf of Millennial Central for Mrs. T’s Pierogies. I received a product sample to facilitate my review and a promotional item as a thank you for participating.”

As you may remember, last month I had a fabulous girls weekend at Malibu Winery made even more enjoyable by Mrs.T’s Pierogies. This month, I thought what better place to bring these snacks than to a basketball watching party for NCAA March Madness! I must say my bracket is doing even better than expected and I couldn’t be happier that my Arizona Wildcats have advanced to the Sweet Sixteen. I’m so excited to see them later in the week hopefully make it to the Elite Eight. Beardown!!

For this Arizona viewing party, everyone was asked to bring some type of finger food. I was so glad I had a few boxes of Mrs.T’s Pierogies stashed in my freezer. I didn’t have a lot of time with my busy work schedule to spend several hours cooking something up, so I was especially happy to have the boxes on hand and ready to whip up fast. I especially love the potato and onion ones! I decided to boil them this time and left them rather simple with just a bit of oil and salt and pepper. They were the perfect game day food, hearty and filling but simultaneously light and not greasy, fried, or salty like a lot of other typical sports-watching snacks. Even though they were on the healthier side they still tasted delicious and et me just say they were definitely the perfect pairing option for a cold beer ;) A win win in my opinion!

Next time I’m at the market I really hope I can find a box of the mini variety or the sweet potato flavor, there are so many different kinds I wish I could try them all! Luckily the wildcats won and advanced to the next round of the tournament so hopefully I will have another watch party to bring them to! I would 100% consider making these again as everyone loved them, even the picky eaters, and they were quick and easy (and affordable!) What are your favorite game day snacks to make or bring? What team are you rooting for this weekend?

Bisous,
