This month, I'm handing over the Foodie Pen Pal post to Barbara, from Kentucky, who was my pen pal for September. Barbara isn't a blogger (which is one of the nice things about the pen pal match ups), so I told her that she could do a guest spot this month. Before I hand it over to her, I'd like to thank Shelby, from Virginia, who sent me my lovely box of pen pal goodies. I can't wait to get into the Piri piri sauce she sent amongst the coffee, hot cereal, peanut butter and granola bar.
And now, take it away Barbara!
Hi everyone at Edible Obsession. I am Barb from Kentucky and this is my fourth month participating in the Foodie Pen Pal exchange. I was so excited to receive this month's box of goodness from Shannon.
I love local products and Shannon hooked me up with all local exciting goodies. Some of my fondest memories as a child growing up were ones of my grandmother and mother canning and pickling fresh garden veggies. So when I opened my box and saw the home canned "Dilly Beans" it brought back so many thoughts of great times.
Then I found the locally produced strawberry (my favorite) preserves. The next item was homemade ketchup. And then finishing off the box was maple/sea salt popcorn. I love a little sweet and a little salt. This box really hit the spot and I love all of these exciting food finds that brought a some tastes of the Northeast to my neck of the woods in Central Kentucky. I am blessed here to have so many local producers of high quality tasty products and really appreciate Shannon's local selections to send to me this month. If you are not participating in the Foodie Pen Pal program you are missing out. Thanks again for a great box!!!
