Have I told y’all how much I love foodie penpals? Pretty sure I have…
When you live in a small town, it can be tricky to make it to the post office when it’s open to pick up parcels, so I had the notification card sitting on the dash in my car for a few days… the torture!
Natalie sent me a parcel this month, and I send goodies to Kathy. Natalie’s blog is: sugarflourflavour.blogspot.com. I’m a bit of a cupcake purist these days, but Natalie has a ton of deliciously sweet deliciousness on her blog – go check it out!
Natalie asked me what kind of things I liked, and of course, chocolate and anything sweet-and-salty. Usually, I just ask for my penpals to surprise me, with tasty results, but to have a package tailored to me, all me, was fun! What I’m particularly appreciative of are cupcake liners for Cupcake Fridays! How absolutely adorable! I received a beautiful hand-written note, and a recipe for sweet-salty cookies. Wow 🙂
There was a dark chocolate and salt-covered caramel, but I promise you, it jumped out of the wrapper and into my mouth. There was nothing I could do! Natalie sent me tea with coconut agave and honey – these will be going under the lid of a bento at some point for a sweet treat after lunch. The coffee cup cozy is lovely, reduce, reuse, recycle – it’s in my purse for the next time I’m in the mood for a latte. I’m excited for the quinoa pasta – gluten-free posts are very well-received on here, so I am looking forward to making lunch with it. Finally, a Starbucks salted caramel hot chocolate – what’s awesome is that I sent Kathy one of these as part of her treats. Great minds think alike!
