Foodie Pen Pals…

I signed up this month to be a part of the Foodie Pen Pals that The Lean Green Bean has been organizing.  Basically, you say you want to be a part of it and you get put on the list.  You are assigned a person and you get assigned to another person.  You have to mail a package of different foods by the 15th and then you get to blog about your package at the end of the month.

I got my first box on Monday.  I love receiving packages in the mail.

Here’s the yummy stuff that was in my box…

Vegetable Chips, I love these, chips made out of sweet potatoes and beets.  We have had these before at our house and they are tasty.

IMG_0976These Chipins are awesome!  Popcorn in the form of a chip.  Perfect for Camy and her mouth full of braces.

Strawberry Healthy Harvest applesauce, I have seen these at the store many times but have never bought them.  I love that they are tart.  Great for a lunch on the go.

Nut Butters, I’ve never seen these before.  Camy has already eaten one of these.  She thinks it’s very convenient and they would be perfect to squeeze onto apple slices.

Stephen’s Hot Chocolate in raspberry cheesecake.  I am sad that it’s been close to 80 degrees all week.  I think that winter is officially behind us and I might have to crank the a/c so I can try this out.  What could be better than hot chocolate mixed with raspberry cheesecake?

Homemade stuffed cookies.  Yum!  Chocolate chip cookies stuffed with Oreos, 100 Grand, and Reece’s Peanut Butter Cups.  We have all sampled these, and I am not embarrassed to admit that the 100 Grand cookies didn’t even last long enough for me to take a picture of them, and I did not share them with anyone.  They were so good.  I might just have to incorporate that lovely little candy bar into either a cookie or a cupcake.

I hope my pen pal enjoyed the box I sent her, and I can’t wait to be a foodie pen pal next month.
