I know, I’ve basically fallen off the face of the earth. But it’s Foodie Pen Pal reveal day, and I felt the need to come back and share what I got in my box this month. If you want a reminder of what this whole thing is about, check out Lindsay’s site: The Lean Green Bean. (You’ll note that for December she’s doing a special Foodie Pen Pal for charity – check it out and donate to help Hurricane Sandy victims!)
This month, my pen pal was in Maryland. Since my husband and I briefly contemplated moving to Maryland several years back, I was intrigued to get a package full of local Maryland treats. This time I was clever and told my pen pal that I’d prefer not to have a package filled with junk food and goodies, but that didn’t mean I didn’t appreciate a treat or two. Kim definitely delivered! Here is what I got in my fantastic package:
Kim sent me some amazing local flavors from Maryland. She included a harvest pear vinaigrette, Old Bay seasoning, a jar of pumpkin butter, crab seasoned popcorn, fried green beans, jambalaya seasoning, dried fruit chips, and caramel popcorn. The perfect balance of naughty and nice! I’m excited to have a taste of Maryland in my kitchen.
So far I’ve tried the caramel popcorn, the vinaigrette, and the fruit chips – they are all delicious. The fruit chips include some more interesting fruits than your typical, such as honeydew, pineapple, and starfuit. Who knew dried honeydew was so delicious?? Thanks again, Kim!
