Pssst … Pillsbury Crescent Party

I was recently contacted by General Mills’ Pssst about hosting a Pillsbury Crescents “Holiday Entertaining” Recipe Swap with MyGetTogether. MyGetTogether is a fun way to try products and sometimes new recipes in the company of good friends, where one or more brands from General Mills and other companies may participate, giving you a real inside look at the products, providing coupons, unique giveaways or other offers.

To share these fun recipes with my friends I decided to host a luncheon at work. My co-workers all love projects and get-together’s so in order for them to feel involved and engaged I shared the fun of preparing the meals with them. Using the grocery list provided I bought all the ingredients for the four different recipes and distributed them to different staff members on Thursday for them to cook/bake and bring their meals with them for the luncheon on Friday. The response and feedback was awesome. Everyone had a great time. They shared how easy and fun the recipes were and everything came out tasting wonderful. I think we may do something like this again. Here are a few pics from our fun time together.

Pssst along with sent me the opportunity to participate in this wonderful recipe swap. The box contained the following items: Pillsbury Crescents recipes to share with guests, 5 coupons for FREE Pillsbury Crescents, A $20 gift card to purchase recipe ingredients, A handy shopping list of recipe ingredients, 30 product information sheets with coupon, Allergen fact sheet, Tabletop signs to display near food, 60 recipe cards (15 of each recipe) to share with guests, A sheet pan and metal turner, A special oven mitt.
