Foodie Pen Pal–September II

I posted on Monday about MY foodie pen pal for September and all the awesome stuff I got in my box. . .

But you didn’t get to hear about what I sent! I sent my box to another reader – so no blog post to see it on. . . Michele is a reader in Michigan who was a first time participant!

And here is what she got from me. . .

Laffy Taffy – just ‘cause I love the dumb jokes on the wrappers! Winking smile

Yogurt covered almonds. . . so delicious! (And Luke was a good helper putting the box together!)

RPSs – my favorite thing from my foodie box last month so had to spread the RPS joy!

oh my goodness – these things are ridiculously delicious. Salads, yogurt, ice cream!

Hot pepper jelly – perfect with crackers and a smear of cream cheese. Apple chutney – paired with yogurt or ice cream or over pork chops. Both fresh and local from the Mankato Farmer’s Market.

And a cute cupcake card! Winking smile 

Already thinking about what I am going to send me pen pal for October. . . something Halloween related I think!!!

Foodie Pen Pal–September

Another month, another foodie pen pal. After my great experience with August, I decided to participate again!

This time my foodie pen pal was from Puerto Rico! Check out the super cute mailing label she made!

Ilka was super friendly and sent me a great box. IMG_1637
She told me that her daughter, Ilka Vanessa, and her had lots of fun putting it together.

And here is what was in my box this month. . .

Ilka works as a Spanish teacher at “SESO” and sent me a coffee mug. . .

And a cute burp cloth for Luke – so adorable! IMG_1646

And perhaps the thing I am the most excited about! A tostonera … to make tostones – fried plantains.

You put the slices plantains in the tostonera to flatten then before frying!

Everything all together!

Thank you thank you thank you Ilka (and Ilka Vanessa!) for this super awesome and amazing box. I am so excited to try everything. I can tell you both put a lot of time, thought and effort into putting this box together and it is very appreciated. The little gift for Luke was especially thoughtful. Smile I hope your foodie pen pal box was just as awesome!
