This is my second month participating in Foodie Pen Pals. I love shopping for my partner but it's more exciting getting mail! I received the most adorable package from Liz of Library Hush - I almost didn't want to take off the bow, it was so pretty!
I always would rather have quality products over quantity and I prefer local goods. Liz sent me all organic products and purchased from local, small businesses. Love!
Liz sent me the recipe for My Special Zucchini Bread Recipe and included two of the ingredients: huge bags of walnuts and candied ginger! Also in my package was a box of Stroopwafels, bag of Farm Boy Johnnycakes mix and jar of Blueberry Lavender Preserves. The box of Stroopwafels didn't stand a chance - my 6 year old loves waffles and wanted to try 'em out. He ate half and I had the other half, it was delicious. I immediately had visions of adding it to french vanilla ice cream and the blueberry lavender preserves - which I actually made a few days later. It is magical. I've had it twice since then. I love everything Liz sent but haven't had a chance to make Johnnycakes or the Zucchini Bread yet. I can't wait! Thanks for being an awesome foodie pal Liz!
Sadly I won't be participating for the next few months - I've been getting busier by the weeks and need to focus on future projects. I'm planning on returning in December or January. It is that fun!
This month I sent to Debbie of Accidently Delish.
I convinced my friend Chanelle of The Frugal Asians to get in on the action.
Check out what I received last month from Diana of Veggie Next Door.
