Foodie Pen Pals-Month 1

I joined up with Lindsay at The Lean Green Bean for her monthly Foodie Pen Pals.  All I can say is AWESOME!  I am a "foodie pen pals" lifer. How it works. The wonderful Lindsay assigns each of us a "foodie pen pal"  on the 5th of the month....find 15 dollars worth of "goodies" and then mail it to them by the 15th...and then post it on your blog on the 31st.  Easy peasy and you get to meet so many new people too.   I had so much fun picking out stuff for my pen pal Leah, trying to figure out what she would like. I gave her a lot of my favorites and you can check out her guest post here to see what I gave her.

Now, what did I get from the fabulous Ashley over at CoffeeCakeandCardio.  What a great first foodie pen pal for me. We found out that we have some small world connections and we are going to have the opportunity to meet in a couple of months.  Can't wait!  The goodies she sent were right up my alley and I devoured each and every thing she sent me, and my husband snuck a few test tastes too.
 My box from Ashley included: A Dark chocolate bar with caramel, and sea salt from Trader Joes(so absolutely delicious I must get to Trader Joes...only about a 120 mile drive...) Red Rice, Sweet Potato crackers...(lurrve these) some Cranberry Chutney(can't wait to use in my recipe I have coming up) Dark Chocolate bar from Starbucks, a dark chocolate bar with walnuts and cranberries that I used in a recipe...delish...

Did you notice the dark chocolate theme....hmmm...I think I have a problem....
