March Foodie Pen Pals

This month’s package caused quite the stir; initially because it went missing for a while.  I was vacationing in France (food photos and restaurant reviews to follow) when the package arrived but the mail carrier, true to form, didn’t leave me a delivery slip.  It turns out, the super of my building had accepted it and was trying to reach me but every time he stopped by, I wasn’t home.  Finally, yesterday, we connected and I was able to open my delightful package and put my partner Julie’s mind at ease about its whereabouts.

The second stir was created by the many wonderful things inside the package:   Black salt, homemade salsa, dried red and green chilis, red lentils, plantain chips, seasoned seaweed, a variety of nice teas, some popcorn and a packet of cocoa.  Best of all, there is a grow your own Thyme kit which I can add to the basil I received a few months ago.  

Thanks to Julie for putting together such a great package.  I can’t wait to use the lentils to make a tasty meal and the plantain chips will make a nice break snack at work.  All the other treats are equally exciting.

If you aren’t signed up for Foodie Pen Pals, you should be!  It’s such a nice thing to look forward to every month and shopping for your partner is just as much fun.  Check out the program with Lindsay over at The Lean Green Bean for more details.
