After some deliberation and many many emails ... I present to you my
Foodie Penpal Box
from a top secret agent government worker....
haha sounds awesome doesn't it?
We had some chats about Mexican Cuisine and since she recently made a trip to Columbia I thought who better to find something authentic for me.
My box was full to the brim and I cannot say I loved everything even though I really want to.
I am a super southern girl so I may not even know what some of this stuff is but I will look up some more recipes other than the 2 she sent me and I will experiment!
First of all I do love this dark chocolate... it is a nice little treat while I am cooking dinner to grab a single little bite out of the freezer. Am I the only one who freezes their chocolates?
This is one of those things I have no idea! Maybe before it is over I will be an expert!
I do know what these are and just realized I should thrown a couple in the chili I made last night! Darn it I forgot.
Who doesnt love caramel?
I don't mind that I can't read the whole jar... All I need to know is that it is caramel!
I am guessing these are some verbena toiletries from a hotel in Columbia
and they smell so good.
Dried black chiles as well. Did I mention she included a couple recipes for me? I will be trying them soon.
A kind Bar.... peanut butter and dark chocolate! Yum
I have had this before and know they are yummy
but this particular one disappeared before I could get to it
I think it and the meal bar paired up and ran away!
I am soooo not sure about this chocolate but it was nasty!
Chili Chocolate something it tasted like dark chocolate and hot peppers.
I am not sure what I am supposed to do with it
but I will not be eating anymore of it plain.
Oh am I mean for letting the kids try some after they begged me for it?
I warned them it was not what they were expecting.
a blend of spices unsed in Indian Cuisine. I will have to look this up as well.
I hope all this searching and experimenting will hold me over until next month.
