September Foodie Pen Pal Reveal!

I’m getting better with my timing! Only one day behind 🙂  well, I was only one day behind when I started putting this post together… oops…

This month I received my package from Christine from New Jersey, she blogs over at ChristinesQuietSpot, She’s newer to blogging and makes THE most adorable cards! I was lucky enough to get one- right on the fridge it went!

What better way to put her card on the fridge than with a New Jersey magnet!

I told you it was a cute card!

Christine also sent me some recipes, along with some of the ingredients.

   I’ve never seen whole Nutmeg before, now I need a little spice grinder thingy!

Red Lentils- Something else I’ve never eaten, let alone cooked!
I ended up making some with spaghetti and a homemade red sauce with some cheese and it was pretty easy and tasty!

Cannot wait to try this!  It sounds yummy!

Eric’s became a little more interested in the box when he saw these peach jalapeno preserves, we still haven’t tried it yet- but I have some pork chops that need cooking this week.

I LOVE this blueberry spread, it and the jalapeno peach preserves are from her area- how cool that Christine took the time to find me something local 🙂

     I think the chocolate may be local too, considering the name and all.

THESE COOKIES ARE AMAZING! Not overly sweet or lemony, just perfect! A must have, Christine suggested eating them with ice cream, I’ll have to try it next time I buy some ice cream.

The other favorite of the package was the coconut chips from Trader Joe’s.  O M G… No words for them, crunchy, sweet and savory, mmm. Of course I can’t find the picture of the bag, but it’s ok because they are still delicious.

I sent my September package to Karen over at Read: Cook: Live. Karen is a high school teacher in Brooklyn, NY ( which proved to be a somewhat irritating shipping/receiving experience!) I love how she cooks things inspired by what she’s reading for her blog, it makes me want to be more adventurous in my cooking!
