Challenges, Trying New Food

Foodie Pen Pal Reveal: April Edition!

As I went to bed last night, I realized that I completely forgot to post about my foodie package on the last day of the month! Honestly, it says nothing bad about the package, it’s just that I received it a couple weeks ago and forgot that I hadn’t written about it yet. So let’s get to it, shall we? 🙂

In April, I sent my package to Jessica @ Jessica is Baking (check out her blog to see what I sent her!). She lives in New Jersey and is a seasoned FPP! She is just about to graduate from law school and, although we are studying very different things, I kinda know how she must been feeling these days. 🙂

I received my package from Haley in Minnesota. She is also studying; social work in her case. The package she sent me was such a big treat! I still haven’t tried everything yet but I am so excited to do so in the upcoming weeks.

Chocolate tea! I didn’t even know that it existed but if there’s one way to get me to like tea, that will be it. 🙂
Lemon-infused olive oil and
Lemon-infused olive oil and cranberry-pear balsamic vinegar. These will be fabulous in a fresh summer salad!
Chocolate covered wine grapes. Way to combine two of my favorite things. :)

I must admit, my favorite so far is definitely the chocolate bar. Holy banana!

Thank you so much to Haley for the lovely package!

It was the perfect thing to receive as I was finishing up my last (ever?) finals!
