Running Dirty. Eating Clean. Loving Life.

November Foodie Penpal Reveal

The past few months, I’ve been participating in the Foodie Pen Pal program organized by Lindsay at the Lean Green Bean.  After a few months of ending up empty-handed, I was really excited to come home one day and find a package from Sarah full of goodies from her home state of Colorado.

I had a great time unpacking the box to discover all the goodies she’d sent me.

In the box, I found a bag of  Archer Farms Pecan Sticky Bun Granola from Target, Korma Curry Powder, Corn Chips with flax-seed from one of the local health food stores, almond butter, Celestial Seasonings Fruit Tea Sampler, a peach Greek yogurt granola bar, Ghirardelli hot cocoa and peppermint stir sticks, white chocolate chai, a seasoning packet, and some homemade spiced nuts (eaten before I could snap a pic).  The granola, hot cocoa, curry and almond butter are some of her favorite things that she wanted to share.  The spice mix is from a spice shop one of her coworkers owns (and really good on potatoes!!!).  The stirrers are made in Denver. They went so good with the hot cocoa mix!!  The chai was from her favorite chai place.  It was the perfect treat one chilly night while sitting by the fireplace.  The tea is made in Boulder.  I love Celestial Seasonings tea!!  I always throw a bag or two in my med kit for nights I have to work hockey and need something hot to drink.  The fruit sampler is one of my favorites.  I haven’t had a chance to try the curry yet, but everything else was so yummy.  Most of the box has disappeared already.  Thanks Sarah for all the wonderful treats!!

This month I sent my package to Lyndi at The Journey.  Click here to see what all I sent her way. If you’re interested in being a foodie pen pal, click on the link on my homepage.  Instead of sending food gifts to each other this month, Lindsay is asking the pen pals to donate the money they would normally spend on their food gifts to those affected by Hurricane Sandy.
