My first Foodie Penpal package (from Oklahoma)

This past month I added my name to the Foodie Penpal list over at the Lean Green Bean.  This pen pal list is a group of people from around the nation, including the United Kingdom that send a foodie package to a selected member in exchange for the same from another member.

I was paired up with Chris and Amy from A Couple in the Kitchen as a sender and I sent them a few items that are popular here in Oregon, like Tillamook Cheese and Wall's Berry Farm Jam. But my name was paired up with Theresa from A Change of Pace.

My Foodie Penpal actually lives in Oklahoma, so I was so pleased to get items from the south and products that are based out of Oklahoma.  I miss Arkansas and the south so much, so this foodie box was welcomed into my home with open arms.

On another note, since Theresa is from Oklahoma, I had to check on her after the tornado hit the area.  I emailed her quickly to find out if she was okay and she let me know that the bad part of the storm was east and west of her and missed her area.  I was so relieved to know that she was okay and after learning how bad Oklahoma was hit by the storms and how horrible and devastating some places are right now it made me appreciate my items even more.  



Theresa sent me the most amazing items!  First it was the homemade taco seasoning that caught my eye.  And the all-natural salsa from Maria Rea's.  She had sent this wonderful homemade bag of taco seasoning that ended up prompting us to have a homemade taco night.  The best part about it was the fact that she stapled the recipe she follows with the bag of seasoning so I can make more.  It was delicious!





The rest of the package contained items that I love!




So great! 

  
She also sent this wonderful seasoning salt called Head Country All-Purpose Championship Seasoning that we used on our rib-eye steaks.






The seasoning salt was delicious and was probably one of the best we've had. 

It was a great package for my first Foodie Penpal and I loved the fact that everything was healthy and contained good ingredients.  

Theresa did a great job with this box for us and I can't wait till next month!  

Thanks so much Theresa for sending us such a great box of goodies!  You made my first month with the Foodie Penpals so enjoyable!

If the Foodie Penpals is something you would want to be part of head over to The Lean Green Bean and sign up.  The sign up process is super easy and trust me, you won't regret it!  It's a load of fun and you get to meet new people and try food items you might not otherwise get a chance to.
