So, we are all still living in a quarantine world, socially distancing, and using Zoom for virtual meetings, family reunions, and happy hours.
This is probably a good time to revisit a past Curly Girls episode where Ann Marie and I paired wines with favorite junk foods. I didn’t have to bake a thing for that one! It was all guilty pleasures taken straight out of our pantries and grocery store snack food aisles! We discussed how these pairings are perfect for date night or movie night IN, fast food dinner at home (what’s faster than wine and a bag of chips?) or a late night guilty pleasure snack.
Ann Marie and I had a great time coming up with our favorites. I thought I’d share here, since we are all in a wine and “snacky” kind of mood these days.
In no particular order… I present to you, our findings !
The Curly Girls junk food and wine favorites!
Goldfish crackers: Riesling
Cheetos:/Doritos: Pinot Noir
Potato chips: Bubbly!
Slim Jims: Cab Franc or Lambrusco
Chips Ahoy cookies : Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Merlot, Zinfandel, Rose. Wow, it pairs well with LOTS!
Nutter Butters, Peanut Butter Toasty : Cabernet Sauvignon, Port
Oreos: any cream sherry, like Harvey’s Bristol Cream or a Malbec or Zinfandel
Milk Duds: Zinfandel
I hope this list is helpful (or at least brings a smile to your face!) If you try any of our suggestions, let me know !
Cheers to today my foodie friends!
