It’s been a while since I have participated in Lindsay’s Foodie Pen Pal Program. I took a break during our big move until I felt settled and organized again. I missed getting and giving my monthly boxes. It feels so good to be back ;)
For the month of February, I received my package from Jennifer
of Food Gourmet the Healthy Way
. She was so thoughtful to include all local goodies from our shared state of California. There was also a nice balance of sweets and healthy treats.
After two weeks of clean eating
, I was looking forward to a some sweet indulgences, but nothing that would throw me completely off my routine. So Jennifer’s box was the perfect balance.
I was most intrigued by the big bag of salt water taffy. So many beautiful colors and yummy flavors to choose from. I grabbed a handful while I continued to open up the rest of the box.
The next thing to catch my eye was the jam. There is nothing more delicious than homemade jam. And anything strawberry is an immediate favorite. I can’t wait to spread this on everything from bagels, to muffins, to toast.
And finally, a bag of local dried apricots. My favorite snack. So sweet and chewy I love to pair them with a salty counterpart like a handful of nuts. Get’s me excited for summer and the prospect of fresh apricots.
Thanks Jennifer for an awesome box! I hope your pen pal was as generous to you as you were to me :)
