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!
