Foodie Penpals – January
January 31, 2013 by happyandsimple
Today is January’s Foodie Penpals reveal day! If you’re not familiar with the program, it’s open to US, Canadian, and European residents. Each participant sends and receives a box of surprise foods and/or sweets on a month-to-month basis – find out more by clicking HERE (or the purple icon on the right side of my blog). This month I sent a box to Ashley and received a package from a fellow Minnesotan. Debbie sent me a box chock-full of goodies.
The box included:
3 bags of tasty homemade goods: granola, granola bars, and toffee bars (Now THAT is motivation!)
Florentina from Albany Home Bakery (Gotta love a bit of chocolate, especially with a crunchy candy nut base.)
Peanuts in the shell (My dad was more than happy to share these.)
Garlic Sea Salt (Perfect timing, as I had just run out of garlic salt – love that this has no preservatives!!)
Watson’s Lemon Extract (I have a thing for lemon icing, so this is great!)
Bob’s Red Mill Scottish Oatmeal (Nice that is it finely milled – I’ve been happily adding it to cookies and muffins.)
Last, but not least, she included a handmade card for me to use later – how nice is that?!
Everything in the box was great – thank you, Debbie!
ps – The promised microwave-friendly corn heating pad/bag tutorial that I keep yammering about will be posted on Saturday!
