Since today marks the last day in July, it’s time for another Foodie Penpal Reveal!
In case your a new reader, CLICK HERE to check out what the Foodie Penpals program is all about. I was started by Lindsay over at The Lean Green Bean Blog and has continued to grow each month. I love receiving the mysterious package every month! It’s exciting and sort of feels like christmas!
This month, I received a package from another blogger, Veronica. Check out her page HERE - it talks about all her wonderful adventures she’s taken over the past years.
When I came home from school one day, I was greeted with this vibrant box
Isn’t it adorable?! I thought so
I immediately tore it open and started to explore
Inside was a lovely note explaining the purpose for each item and some yummy goodies and good reading.
The magazine revolved around some good eats in boston and the little postcard like things are all about the Mexican Chocolate – there’s even a recipe to use it in!
I couldn’t wait, so I nibbled off a little piece of the chocolate – it was DELICIOUS! I decided to save the rest to use in baking when I get the chance.
Next, I moved onto the granola. Nibbled a bit to give it a try and immediately put some in a baggie to take to school for my snack with yogurt and also added it to my usual afternoon fruit and yogurt bowl – it’s so yummy! I’m definitely making my way through the bag
Then, I came to the Pear and Apple jelly. Not going to lie, I wasnt’ skeptical about it at first (notice how only one piece of toast has it ), but once I tried if on PB toast the next morning for breakfast, I was hooked!
I absolutely loved everything in my box and have been enjoying it all ever since it arrived
