Hey everyone! Don’t know if you caught my post on the Foodie Penpal last month, but we’ve got another one this month! I am really loving this little penpal thing! It’s a month to month thing, so if you just want to try it one month and try it out, you are golden! There are new signups every month! You don’t have to be a blogger, anyone can join in! Also, there are participants to multiple countries so there is a good chance that you’ll be able to join in. I know for sure that there is US, Canada and the UK. I’m not sure beyond that but the awesome lady that puts this together will answer any questions you have! She has a great list of FAQs and rules to protect us from being ripped off. 😀 Be sure and check it out! If nothing else, there are some great things on her site. 😀
Here is the list I was emailed from the awesome Mrs. Kira who sent me my box! The most exciting thing was that I hadn’t tried any of the products so I got to try all kinds of new stuff!!! I’ll include my thoughts on each. 😀 You can check out the amazing recipes and such at her blog, Hot Cookin’ Mama.
The Garlic oil and spices- I have already gone through an entire garlic oil bottle. It’s the same idea as the bread and oil/herbs you get at Johnny Carino’s. It is SO heavenly!
I will admit I’ve not been able to try this one yet! Waiting for the perfect meal, just don’t quite know what meal that is yet… I’m open to suggestions!
Unfortunately, the bottle busted so I wasn’t able to try this one. 🙁 I will say though, it smelled amazing!!! Tip: bubble wrap! 😀 The smell of the box had me drooling!
The Popcorn- This is from a local candy shop here in Portland. They always sell fun childhood candies like candy cigarrettes and Cinna-Stix! They also sell a local Portland company’s “Sock it to Me” socks that are really fun. I take my girls there for Mommy-Daughter dates and they love picking out candies and popcorn!
