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!
I got home to see this waiting for me to open it. Evan was almost as excited as I was!
I told you it was a cute card!
Christine also sent me some recipes, along with some of the ingredients.
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!
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!
