My inaugural Foodie Penpal experience was full of Texans! Since KK and I visited Vermont a few weeks ago, I sent a Vermont-themed package to blog reader Aly in Houston, Texas. Two weeks ago, I received a wonderful box sent from Xochitl Small Bear just outside of Dallas. Here's a peek of the treats I got:
My penpal was kind enough to send me a handwritten note, giving an explanation of each item I received!
Almonds: On-the go snack which covers any craving - salty, crunchy, sweet.
Dried Ancho Chilis: A household staple, complete with directions for making a pozole.
Lettuce seeds: Something fun, yet practical! These will be donated to my in-laws for now, but one of my homeowner goals (whenever we buy a house) is to grow my own vegetables
Recipe: Sweet Potato Chipotle Gratin: Sounds absolutely amazing!
Thank you so much for the fabulous package, Xochitl! Without a question, I'll be joining next month's Foodie Penpals. If you're also interested, blogger or not, head over to The Lean Green Bean to sign up!
