January Foodie Pen Pal

Foodie Pen Pal Jan 14-02

What’s a foodie pen pal you ask?  Well, every month bloggers can sign up to participate and will be paired with another blogger.  Then bloggers send each other a box of yummy treats that cost about $15!  The Foodie Pen Pal program was developed by Lindsay at the Lean Green Bean.  Visit her blog for details and to sign up.  It’s super fun!

What I got: a wonderful card from Krysty, Bobo’s cinnamon raisin oat bar, two Alter Ego miniature chocolate bars, an organic 365 very berry fruit strip, lemon thyme shortbread cookies, fig spread, and a bonus gift!

One of my favorite things from Krysty was this package of lemon thyme shortbread! Unlike most heavy shortbread, these were light and the lemon gave it a very refreshing taste!  And to top it all off, these were a local item for Krysty being made in St. Paul, MN!

I also got a jar of Organic Adriatic Fig Spread.  This stuff is amazing!  It nice and firm and bursting with flavor.  I spread it on Spanish Manchego cheese and it was to die for!  I can’t wait to make my own fig newtons!

Krysty also sent me a super awesome sparkly purple headband!  What I loved about this headband, apart from the color, was how tight it fit on my head.  I went on a two hour hike and it didn’t budge!  Thanks, Krysty!!

Check out Krysty’s blog and see what I sent her.
