It's a very special day today. Not only is it my favorite holiday, Halloween! (Happy Halloween everyone!) But it's also Foodie Pen pal Reveal Day!
I was matched to send a package to another newbie, Candice Coffey, who is
non-blogger. It’s funny, in this swap I always send to non-bloggers. Not
that I mind, it’s just ironic to me. Candice even sent me a guest post!
Finally, I get my a guest post! Woo! Anyway, I’ll now bring your
attention to her.
Not only did Candice give me that guest post, she also mailed me a beautiful thank you card. Thanks Candice! I'm glad you liked everything!
I received my package from Dawn Bedingfield @ Spatulas on Parade from
North Carolina! She actually started her blog due to people requesting
her to start one up and/or suggesting her to write her own book on her
recipes. If that doesn’t tell you she is a master in the kitchen I don’t
know what will convince you other than to go check out her blog. She
has loads of interesting recipes that I’m sure any of you would love to
try out. I’m pleased she started up her blog because if not I probably
wouldn’t have gotten to “meet” this lovely woman. She actually hosts a
Foodie Friends Friday link party also which I think is cool! So while
your scanning through her blog, I’d recommend you to check out her link
to that and if interested become a part of it. Dawn and the other hosts
of the Foodie Friends Friday have also just recently made their own
online magazine! Impressive right? Click here to view it. (Wow, I sound like one of those people on those infomercials who try to get you to buy inexpensive items that don't even work.)
Before I go onto my goodies Dawn sent me I have to address this lovely
letter she wrote me. I always read the note/letter/card that my foodies
give me first. I just feel it’s the polite thing to do. Anyway, as I was
reading it she really gave me some caring, encouraging words that had
to with the “Mr. Thunder Thighs” incident
that happened a few weeks ago. I really appreciated it a lot. The
letter, in itself, made my day. I also enjoyed the cute pumpkin drawing
she drew. Now let’s check out the goods!
I wish I could talk about each and every one of these items, but I don’t
want this post to be a mile long(though it still may be because I like
to talk a lot on reveal day) so I’m going to just high light a few.
Vegetarian/Vegan Sloppy Joe Mix: When I saw this I
laughed because I was craving vegan styled sloppy joe’s earlier on in
the week. Then ironically enough a few days later I get this. Dawn
advised me that if I wasn’t a big bread eater that I could put this over
rice, quinoa, pasta, or couscous..but I went the traditional sloppy joe
way..on a whole wheat bun with a few tator tots. It was just one of
Nature’s Path* Organic Trail mix Pumpkin Spice Chewy Granola Bars: Pumpkin
Seeds+Flax+Oats=Mmm. Says so on the box and I agree. As soon as I got
these I ate one everyday as a snack until they ran out.
Alternative Baking Company* Gluten-free Pumpkin Delight Cookie:
Oh my dknfksdnfdks! This is literally the best cookie I have ever had
since I’ve become a vegan. I ate the whole thing in seconds. I regret
nothing and plan to look for more of these cookies at my health food
store. I even used the “Hot Tip” on the back of the package and warmed
up the cookie for 15 seconds. Nom!
Another great month for me! Thank you so much Dawn! You put together a great package filled with things I've never tried before. Unfortunately the Kind Bars have milk powder in them. Sad face. So I can't enjoy those but no worries I'll find them a home.
