This is my second month with the Foodie Pen Pal Program and it just keeps getting better!
This month I was sent some wonderful goodies from the great state of South Carolina courtesy of Susan! Can you see that green and white box it all came in? How Cute! I must find some like this to send out.
And let me tell you her granola is to DIE for! Luckily for me she sent me the recipe!
Since I have no food allergies or preferences my food goals are simply to make better choices in my quest to lose some weight before my Brother-in-Laws wedding in October. And this box of amazing yummies was perfect a great combination of sweet yet good for you options!
I planted my herb garden as soon as it arrived in the hopes I would have some plants to show you for the reveal….. sadly they haven’t sprouted yet!
This month’s choices were amazing. I love tea that is no secret on this blog and this Lady Grey hit the spot. I’ve been on a big Tea Forte kick lately. But this “Lady” knocked it right out of the rotation! There is nothing better than a relaxing cup of tea in the evening.
The 365 organic fruit stripes were amazing and I actually went and scoured my local stores to find them! Even my boys thought they were pretty good. Good enough to eat an entire box in a day…we’ll chalk that up to bad parenting 😉
The Godiva Sugar Free Chocolate bar had a very short shelf life and was eaten as a 3pm snack on the day it arrived! I can’t say no to chocolate, especially when it just shows up at my door!
This GRANOLA is OUT OF THIS WORLD and Organic! I think I’ve eaten it for every meal type this week. Breakfast, lunch and dinner. I can’t wait to try to make some myself. I’ve never cooked with oat flour before and this recipe calls for it. Any excuse to branch out of my cooking rut I will take!
It’s been on the average of 75 degrees per day out here so I haven’t been in the mood for soup. But the 18 bean soup mix that was included looks yummy so for a cool day. The soup is from a grocery store near Susan called “The French Market” I’m a big fan of local products. I can’t wait to whip it up!
Thank you so much Susan for the amazing products!
