Let me start by saying that this program is so fun. If you don’t know the joy of getting a box of goodies from a new friend, you are missing out. See the bottom of this post for information on how to join in.
I digress, let me start at the beginning. My penpal, Jo Ann, is a lovely woman, who lives in Iowa and knows what’s up. She doesn’t have a blog but she is just as fabulous without one. We exchanged a few emails about our different lives and I loved getting to know her. She is an avid gardener and based on my goodies, an amazing baker!
This is a small sampling of what is left from our fabulous box. Those are sesame peanuts, almonds and goldfish. Jo Ann also included my favorite – Pizzeria Pretzel Combos!! So good. Also, peanut butter from Trader Joe’s, which Sparky has totally stolen, but I hear is quite tasty! She included a few other granola bars, all wonderful: Fiber One and a Clif bar which reminded me of the Nature Valley granola bars. The piece de la resistance were the Oatmeal-Dried Cherry-White Chocolate Chip Cookies. She made them and included the recipe. I know a few people that will benefit from that recipe in the future.
