November Foodie Pen Pal

Posted Dec 04 2012 10:10pm

This weekend, I had the pleasure of heading back to my hometown for my mom and I’s annual Christmas Cookie Swap. It was such a blast – we had 45 different sweets brought by family and friends!

Chris was down for the weekend too for duck hunting with my uncle. I was not only able to help my mom throw the party this weekend, but I also ran the Houma Heart and Soles Half on Saturday morning. We drove back Sunday evening from South Louisiana and didn’t make it back until 6:45 Monday morning due to some car troubles. Needless to say, I am a bit behind on Foodie Pen Pal posting.

I owe ya’ll separate posts on the Cookie Swap and the half marathon but those will have to wait a bit. Oh, did I mention it’s marathon week?! Marathon #4 is going down on Saturday. We are some busy little bees in our house this month!

This month’s foodie pen pal was absolutely awesome. A blog reader, Michelle, who lives in the Keys sent me a wonderful box of goodies – tea, pistachios (which I love), some key lime treats – candies and rum cake and ginger cookies (a family tradition for Michelle). Chris loved the candies and the ginger cookies were divine. I am going to try to use them as a crust in a winter tart recipe! Thanks again to Michelle for such a fun box of treats! I can’t wait to try out the tea and the rum cake.
