First, a moment of silence for my beloved Chicago Bears. My boys, sitting in their toasty homes while the wind blows fallen snow around, feet up, watching football from their easy chairs.

While I would have loved to have them grace my television all through January, don’t believe for a minute that my grief at their loss has resulted in a blackened screen in our home.

Ravens and Patriots last weekend? We watched it, all three hours. And what a game it was. Hard hitting, well-matched, close score; just the way football’s supposed to be. 

That wasn’t all though, was it. East met West after the Patriots won when the Carolina Panthers went head to head with the Seattle Seahawks. Right up to that point where the Seahawks won, it was a fantastic game.

Sunday brought more. Dallas went at it with Green Bay and Indianapolis and Denver knocked helmets. And we watched.

We watched alone; we watched with friends. We drank soda, water and beer. We cheered. We pouted. We ranted and raved.

And we ate. 

I have to tell you, my friends. When I’m watching a game, the last thing I want to do is leave the room to cook up more snacks for those cheering the game on. I’d rather be a part of the fun, watching every play, taking part in the conversation and generally enjoying myself.

Enter Farm Rich, a name that will from here on out be synonymous with game day food.

Actually, that’s not true.

Farm Rich is a name that should be associated with entertaining in general, especially if you’re like me and would rather be enjoying the people you’re with instead of being stuck in the kitchen.

Take these buffalo wings, for instance. Here’s what I did. I opened the packet. Put the wings on a baking sheet, shoved them in a preheated oven and walked away. I missed half of a 30-second commercial. 

Thirteen minutes later, I threw the crispy, hot wings in a contained with the provided buffalo wing sauce, shook it around and poured it all on a platter with some celery sticks and blue cheese dressing.

The wings were crispy, perfectly cooked and deliciously sauced. I was very impressed with the wing sauce, truth be told, and kept dipping my finger in the extra sauce at the bottom of the platter. Everyone felt the same way.

Just to be ornery, I tested the wings a bit. I kept out a few so they wouldn’t be coated in wing sauce and inhaled with the others, and let them cool down. Then I threw them in the microwave, heated them for a minute, sauced them up and put them out for general consumption.

No one could tell. The reheated wings were just as crispy and delicious as the freshly baked wings had been . Score one for me.

You don’t actually think I forgot about Sophie, did you? I knew she wouldn’t be able to handle the wing sauce, so I baked up Farm Rich’s Boneless BBQ Chicken Bites for her and her friend and served the wings with the barbecue sauce included in the box. 

The girls loved them and inhaled them in a matter of minutes, finishing them before I even had a chance to taste one. I’d call that a win.

We were also able to try Farm Rich’s Breaded Mushrooms, Breaded Stuffed Jalapeno Peppers and Marinara Stuffed Mozzarella Sticks. All three were delicious, but Doug and I liked the stuffed jalapeno peppers the most. 

I found Farm Rich products in the snack area of the frozen section in my grocery store. In fact, I’ll be headed back there this week so I can stock up for this weekend’s games.  The good part about that is that I found a great coupon offer on the Farm Rich site so I’ll be getting more snacks and saving money to boot. Another win.

You know me; I don’t rave about stuff I don’t like. I really liked the wings and other snack goodies. We all did. And we think you will too.

    I might have to give these a try in two weeks! My husband and I might have some friends over for the one game wherein I might have everyone rooting for the same team! While I am the resident Seahawks fan (born and raised, thank you), they all dislike the Patriots as much as I do. As much fun as it would have been to see my favorite two teams (Seahawks and Colts) to at it, I would have been in a house divided. Now, for possibly the only time ever, even my husband will cheer on Seattle! That alone is worth a party.

      Kristy, you'd love them. Not only do they taste fantastic and keep their crunch, but they're so easy to make you won't even miss any of the game. Seriously. I loved them.

      LOL … I'm thrilled they got sent home too, but am not all that excited with the two that made it to the final game. I wish the Colts had won.

    Your house is definitely the place to be when there is a game on… what a great spread! My family loves Farm Rich products, too.

      For the food, yeah, it's very game-day friendly. For the television, not so much. We still have the tube variety. :(

    I'm not usually much on boxed wings, but I have to admit that these look yummy!

      I'm not either, Janet. They usually don't have enough crunch under the wing sauce. In all honesty (and you know I'm honest), as far as breaded wings go, these match anything I've had in restaurants.

    Wow! How come I didn't know about these great products? Your wings look amazing—though I have a weak spot when it comes to mozzarella sticks :)

      I know, right? :) I just finished off the mozzarella sticks yesterday as a snack for Sophie and her sleepover friend. The two girls inhaled about half the package.

      We watch every game too. Heck, when football's over we'll just segue over into basketball. :) We finished off all the snacks we had so I'll have to buy more now. The wings are the most awesome but the rest is outstanding too.
