May Foodie Penpals

Hey everyone!

Man, this month has just flown by.  I finished finals, did a whirlwind visit with Sparky’s parents and (re)started my summer job (I had been working there part time during March and April).  The last few weeks, I feel like I am just getting my sea legs back, plus getting used to a regular work week.  I think I am back to share some recipes with ya’ll.  Anyway, before we get to that, I simply must discuss the amazing box that I received  from Julie at Julie Goes Healthy.

The Lean Green Bean

First off, I was delighted to meet her because we both lived in NC at one point.  She has since moved back to Cali and I requested local items.  Ya’ll, Julie has set the bar super high!  Every treat was special, delicious and Sparky and I tore through that box pretty darn fast.  In fact, this is all I have to show for it:

So lame.  We just couldn’t stop nibbling and I just never took a picture.  So the goods were:

  • “Have a Corn Chips” – Laguna Beach, CA
  • By Hand Granola” – Hermosa Beach, CA
  • Chocolate Covered Corn Flakes from Christopher Michael Chocolates – Costa Mesa, CA
  • These amazing raw peanut butter cookies that I loved tremendously
  • A super delish granola that I ate before I went to work out
  • and Acai Berry Sambazon energy drink – the one thing that I am saving, perhaps it will get consumed this weekend!!

Thanks, Julie – you are an amazing pen pal!  Thanks for such a special box of treats.
