A couple months ago I was contacted by Alexia Foods to see if I was interested in becoming an Alexia Tastemaker. I didn’t hesitate because I am a big fan of their natural side dishes and appetizers (especially the sweet potato fries!) and enjoy these types of sponsorships that fit right into my blog.

Officially, the partnership means I get to try new products such as these Multi-Grain Onion Rings and the House-Cut Julienne Fries.  They arrived on my doorstep on dry ice one afternoon and Erik and ate them up that week.  Super tasty.

I will also be doing some other fun things with Alexia Foods such as hosting a fall-inspired dinner party with their tasty sides and appetizers, plus a menu that I created with lots of hearty, fall fare.

Here is the tentative menu (I will probably change my mind on the menu up until a couple days before the party). If you want to check out more details for the party, please follow my Pinterest board.

Apple cider punch
Pork tenderloin with apples and onions
Ricotta, gorgonzola and honey spread crostini with apples
Pumpkin mac and cheese 
Butternut squash soup 
Pumpkin spice truffles

Plus Alexia Foods rolls, appetizers and sides.

Sounds pretty good, doesn’t it?

I have a fun giveaway today, too!
