I had such a blast in my first month of participating. This month I received a goodie box from Margaret from Raleigh, NC. She emailed me the day we received our matching (which I loved!) and felt she was very thorough in her questions on what to choose for me. Once November 15th came, I anxiously awaited for my goodie box. When it came, I could not wait to open it.
She sent me sweet potato crackers (delicious!), homemade roasted peanut butter with honey and salt (yum!), pomegranate molasses, Escazu chocolate, and a very sweet card explaining her goodies. She said the pomegranate molasses is commonly used in Middle Eastern dishes. I cannot wait to try this out! I will admit that I took a finger swipe of it and the taste is indescribable! I will be sad the day it runs out, but there are many recipes that explain how to make it. Looks to be pretty easy. Honestly, if Michelle didn't send me some I probably wouldn't have thought it would be worth the trouble making some! THANK YOU, MARGARET!!
I haven't tasted the Escazu chocolate yet. Saving it for a weekend at home, on the couch, catching up on my TV shows. Dietetic internship keeps me pretty busy and can't stay awake past 9:30pm to watch anything. So far, what I love about this chocolate is that they include a batch number on each bar and that they are a local producer that cares about their product. I'll be sad the day I finish this chocolate. Can't wait for the next FPP starting in January; meanwhile, participate in Foodie Pen Pals for Hurricane Sandy
