Fun with Food

Happy New Year!

Lots of things going on with me for 2015.  I have many goals about my eating and exercising habits and hope to start blogging again.

Last month, I read a little blurb about a Foodie Penpal group, run by The Lean Green Bean.  I just had to join up.   The idea is to spend $15 on a box goodies to send to your penpal.  For January, I was matched with Jen in California and she blogs at The Happy Healthy Balance.

It was fun to browse the aisles of my favorite store Rodman's  to see what I could come up with.  There was a person giving away samples of this delicious coffee sauce (tried on ice cream) so I just had to buy that.  I also sent a fancy chocolate bar, wasabi edamame and something else I can't remember.

Here is what I received in my package

1.  Seapoint Farms Dry Roasted Edamame - the same thing I sent Jen!  Very funny

2.  Justin's Vanilla Almond Butter - a sample package.  I am a late comer to almond butter and it's delicious.

3.  Nature's Bakery Fig Bar - a fancy Fig Newton.

4.  Lassens Cranberry Jubilee Trail Mix - a good snack to bring to work

5.  An assortment of tea:  Tazo Passion, Yogi Ginger, Trader Joe's Ruby Red Chai and Crimson Blossom and Pomegranate White and Ginger Pear.

6.  Redmond's Garlic Salt

All fun food.  I think I am going to enjoy having Foodie Penpals each month
