Well it’s time for another food pen pals reveal.  This month, I was lucky to receive a box of goodies from Sam.  She really listened to my likes/dislikes and (self-imposed) dietary restrictions.  I was thrilled with the thoughtful things she sent me.
Here’s what I got…
 Here’s the box I received.
 Sam is the second person to wrap my goodies in a cereal box.  Great idea as it’s light in weight and a good size.  We don’t eat cereal, so I can only do the same when someone sends me one 🙂
 I mentioned that my biggest vice is potato chips, so Sam was kind enough to include these delicious ones.  I was happy to see they have no added MSG and nothing artificial.  They were treated as a big treat and didn’t last long between the 3 of us 🙂
 I haven’t tried this, but it sounds wonderful.  Sam said she bought it at a local farmers’ market.  I know it’s going to be great.
 I had never seen this before, but will be looking out for it for sure.  It’s sweetened with coconut palm sugar!  I could hardly believe it when I read that.  Again, it has nothing artificial in it.  It had a lovely deep, dark chocolate flavour and was gone pretty fast.
This curry masala was fantastic.  I used it with some ground grass-fed beef from a local farm and sauteed lots of onions, garlic, ginger, bell peppers & kale with it.  We loved it.
 Sam also included a lovely hand-written note to explain everything to me.
And last but not least, she included one of her favourite recipes.  I’ll be trying this very soon.  I’m a big fan of Thai soups and make one that’s popular with family and friends.  Mine’s with pumpkin and Sam’s is with sweet potatoes and shrimp.  It’ll be fun to compare the two.
So another foodie pen pals experience is under my belt and again it was a wonderful one.  If you’re interested in seeing what I sent, pop on over to Michelle’s blog If you’re interested in giving it a try yourself, just click on the “I love foodie pen pals” image at the top left-hand side of the page.
