This month I received my box from:

Charmine. She is a Super Mom. She is a woman on the go who loves to stay active and healthy. She lives in California! Oh what I wouldn’t give for a bit of their sunshine and warmth.

Here’s what she sent me.

001

I love the Annie Chun’s food line, I am a huge fan of their soups and noodles, so I am really excited to try the Seaweed snacks and the ramen noodle packages that Charmine sent. Plus she sent me some fruit leather and I am a huge fan of all fruit leather.

005 006 004

Also included in the box was an assortment of coffee samples, organic nuts from Oregon and some barbecue sauce.  I don’t drink coffee, but I know I can pack these on a trip I have coming up and share with some of my coffee drinking friends.

009 007 008

Now to the Star of the Foodie Pen Pal Box…

Five cans of tuna. I love tuna, I mean I absolutely adore tuna,  and these were packaged from a deep-sea fishing trip Charmine and her family had in San Diego. I am beyond excited to break them open and make a huge pan of homemade tuna noodle casserole. The idea of this being fresh caught tuna that was processed and canned makes this Foodie Pen Pal, ONE Happy Girl.

002

Thank-you so much Charmine, I love me some tuna, and you sure did stock me up. 

I sent March’s Foodie Box to:

Sydney over at Alternative Vegan. I was so excited to send to Sydney. This is the 1st. Vegan I have been paired up, and I have been doing the Pen Pal exchange for over a year. I love her story on becoming a Vegan. I am not Vegan, but I strive to be more conscious everyday with my choices.

Welcome to the February Foodie Pen Pal Reveal Day!

Fun Fact about  the Foodie Pen Pal Program: OVER 1000 bloggers and reader participate in the exchange…

blogbadgeAPPLE Foodie Penpals

This month I received my box from: Meg at Meg Vs Chub. I also received my January box from Meghan. I don’t think that this happens very often, because there are so many participants in the Foodie Pen Pal Exchange, and since people are randomly paired together. I thought it was really cool and since I loved my January Foodie Pen Pal Box I looked at it as another opportunity to get to know Meghan that much more….If you read January’s post then you know that I love her tag line: Screw You Chub, Get Outta My Way. It’s just such a strong and bold tagline. She also makes the BEST card to send with the Foodie Box.

So this months card looks like this. This is the back of the card.

060

The front of the card.  So cute and is truly how I feel about food.

061

So on to the Revel. Check out my box of Awesomeness.  It has such a wonderful variety, and with new things I have never tried before, I really love that.

048

She also sent my babies a treat. Boy did they love that. These are homemade treats and my “kids” went nutz for them. Stuart was licking the bag! Ginger was patiently waiting her turn.

058

054 055 059 056  057 061

Meghan, my little “kids” LOVE you for thinking of them, and thank-you for the yummy treats. They felt really special getting a treat in the Foodie Box!

Now back to what I received.

049

I am really excited to try the PB&J bar from Trader Joe’s. Plus this fun Greek Yogurt Granola Bar.

I just cannot get over how excited I am about breaking into all my goodies.

064 065 067 063 062 061

Snapea Crisps, Yes Please….

050

Thanks Meghan! I really enjoyed spending the last two months with you as my Foodie Pen Pal. You’re a real sweetheart and I love your choices in food and snacks. I also wanted to Congratulate Meg on her weight loss success. On her blog she posted a Progress Picture and her weight loss to date. Amazing Progress Meg. You really accomplished so much and I find it so inspiring how you changed your health and your life.

I sent February’s Foodie Box to Tracie who is a reader of  Foodie Blogs. I had a good time getting to know her via email. She has 2 little kids ages 11 and 6. She also has 6 dogs and 3 cats. She loves fitness and good food. Sounds like she is getting ready to start her own blog sometime this year, and I for one cannot wait until she does! I’m also hoping she will Guest Post for me and share her love of travel, food and her family.

It’s Reveal Day, Happy Foodie Pen Pal Day!

FPP post Foodie Penpals

So just a quick note about the Foodie Pen Pal Program. I just want to start by saying that ANYONE can join in the Foodie Pen Pal Program, it is open to readers and bloggers. It’s so much fun, you meet so many great people and get some really tasty food and snacks. For more information about the Foodie Pen Pal Program, please see the end of this post. Okay, now on to the Reveal.

I took a few months off from the Foodie Pen Pal Program over the holidays, I knew I just could not commit to adding one more thing to my to-do list, but as soon as my schedule returned to normal, I knew I had to sign back up. I am so happy to be back, I missed this program, it really is so much fun and I love meeting other bloggers and readers. So this month I received my box from Meg at Meg Vs Chub. I love her tag line: Screw You Chub, Get Outta My Way. 

Check out this box of goodies from Maine, major SCORE. Where to start…Well first off she made me the cutest card with my name on the front, and on the back it says:

“Foodie Pen Pals January 2013″     

012

Now to the goodies: Herbal Pop Corn and some Imported Italian Pasta, I cannot wait to try the pasta with a homemade pasta sauce recipe I have been working on. I also see the popcorn going down with a Netflix Movie, a warm blanket, and a beer on a Saturday night.

013

Some local Maine Crystallized Ginger, Dried Kiwi and Bay Leaves.

015

and, this little jar of love. Pure Maple Syrup. I am planning a special french toast breakfast for this. I think it will be amazing warmed up and drizzled over some baked berry french toast on a cold Sunday morning. I plan on searching the internet for the perfect recipe. I love it when a food item inspires a great meal, plans and something to look forward to. Meg sure did supply me with a clear vision of what to do with my goodies.

016

Now back to this little container. Dried Kiwi. How cool is that? Well they were as delicious as they look. I love dried fruit, it always makes a great snack, and I had never tried dried Kiwi so I was happy that it was in my box for me to try. My husband also enjoyed them.

018

Thank-you Meg for a great box of goodies and inspiring some future meals. Between the pasta and the maple syrup and all the snacking YOU sure did make the January box a highlight to my New Year. Much appreciated Meg.

I sent a box over to Darlynn at The Little Blog Dress. Picking out items to send to a Foodie Pen Pal is just as much fun as receiving a box. Head over to her blog to see what was in her box!

FPP post September Foodie Penpals Reveal Day

Today is October Foodie Pen Pal Reveal Day, and I for one Love Reveal day. So let’s get right to it! 

This month I received my Foodie Box from Stacey. Stacy is a reader of Healthy Living Blogs and is currently thinking about starting up a blog, and I certainly hope she does. I’m also hoping that she will Guest Post here on 40 Fit in the Mitt. Come on Stacey what are you waiting for? 

Stacey lives in Western NY and is a Teacher. She loves to cook, bake and shop, and I have to say this Stacey sure does know how to put together one amazing Foodie Pen Pals Box! Thank-you so much Stacey, I am just so excited to try all my goodies.

Stacey also sent me a wonderfully written card and her secret recipe for Artichoke Dip with a special ingredients twist.. I am sure looking forward to trying this recipe out. So now to the box. It was boxed up so nice in tissue paper and was so much fun to unwrap.

So I grabbed all my goodies and took them outside for a little photo shoot. Check out my loot.

So the first item was this super cool Vanilla Infusion Kit. I am so excited to break this open and Make My Own. I had no idea something like this was even available. All you do to make your own is split the vanilla bean and fill with vodka. Then you store for 4 to 6 months, and BOOM you have your very own 7 year supply of Vanilla.  I just cannot express how EXCITED I am to make my own.

Crouching Tiger Mix. Love a crunchy snack mix.

These lovely little cookies, I dug right into these, and each bite of these cutie patootie cookies had a nice peppermint mocha flavor.

Sweet Potato Chips, Yummy. They had a nice flavor, super crunchy.

I loved all the items Stacey picked out, and just love the Foodie Pen Pal Program, I so look forward to it so much each month.

This month I was paired up with Renee. Renee is also a Healthy Living Blog reader and lives in Illinois. I’m also hoping Renee will Guest Post here as well. Renee loves to cook and bake. I think the one thing I love so much about the Foodie Pen Pal Program is how much fun it is to see where your Foodie Box is going and where yours is coming from. You sure do meet some amazing people all over the USA.

Today is the Day! It’s September Foodie Pen Pal Reveal Day.

foodiepal stamp2 Foodie Penpals

Let’s meet Alek, he is a great young blogger who I meet some time ago via his blog. Alek and I commented back and forth on blog topics and then we lost track of each other. So when I received the email from him that he was going to be my Foodie Pen Pal, I was Super Excited! I immediately caught back up with his blog and was super impressed with how well he has been doing. Alek writes the blog RunServeCook. He has great recipes and loves to eat healthy foods. He runs track and I just love following his blog. So back to his recipes and cooking talents. Alek has one recipe that I was Super Impressed with: Indian Seared Scallops over Rissoto and Wilted Spinach and Curried Spinach Puree. Did I mention that Alek is still in High School!

So here’s what was in my September box from Alek:

Here’s a shot of the Nutritional bars he sent. Loving the variety.

Then I received a bag of Wonderful Pistachios and a Dove Silk White Chocolate and Milk Chocolate Swirl Bar.

Then there’s this little snack. Pure and Simple Bumble Bar, Organic Seed Cherry Chunk bar. I am saving this for a trip I have planned in October. I always hoard snacks and healthy treat for when I travel and this one looks like a tasty treat.

I had the same intentions for these Justin Nut Butters, but my will got the best of me and I ended up using them in my Overnight Oats. Let me say this, I love Justin’s. So smooth and love the Honey flavor.

Alek sent me a few cool packets and I look forward to trying the GU after a swim class I have planned. I am familiar with the Emergen-C packets, but have never tried the Joint Health. I love trying new products.

I am really excited to try the Mila seeds. I am a huge fan of Chia seeds and I love to try other varieties of this Super Food. I plan on making a huge berry and kale smoothie and incorporating the Mila. Doesn’t that sound yummy? I’ll let you know.

So I really have to thank my Foodie Pen Pal Alek for Hitting it Out the Park with this Foodie Box! Alek you did a great job putting together an amazing box of variety and delicious foods for me to try, thank-you so very much my Foodie Friend.

This month I sent a September Foodie Box to Colleen over at Secrets from the Cookie Princess. Go on over and visit her blog, she has some amazing cookie recipes. She is a serious baker and has so many recipes available. I am working on my baking skills so her blog has all the recipes I could ever need.  I plan on making her Chocolate Peanut Butter Yin Yangs cookies for Christmas. They are a thing of beauty.

Foodie Friends I’m gonna,

Check Ya Later.

Hey, I had a question recently asking why I use the sign off Check Ya Later. Well here’s the reason.

Back in the day there was a movie call Dazed and Confused and there was a scenes from the movie with a charter named Slater who used the phrase Check Ya Later, and the other characters teased him for it. Well me and my brother use to say it to each other ALL the time and it just sort of stuck as our way to say good-bye! I love to quote movie line, it’s how I roll.

Urban Dictionary Definition:
Check Ya Later.
something you say when you‘re leaving someone;
this was also used in the movie “dazed and confused”
person 1:check ya later
person 2: alright byeee
Again,

Hello, Hooray, its Foodie Pen Pal Day!

foodiepal stamp2 Foodie Penpals

August Foodie Pen Pal Reveal Day is here, and I am so happy to share with you what I received, but first I want to introduce you to my sender Anna. Anna has a blog called Little Bay Stampin’ and her tag line is:  a little blog about paper, food, and family. set in the charming Cape Cod town of Orleans. perpetually covered in cat fur. 

So now to the goods, Anna made this lovely card. She stamped the flower jar and tied a little burlap bow on it, and added all the paper elements to the card. I love it, she clearly is talented and creative. Plus the note she wrote was great, she described all the items in the box. She’s from Cape Cod and has relatives in Michigan. Turns out her grandmother lives in a town just a few miles away from where I grew up. Talk about a small world.

Here’s all the items from the box. I think I have an amazing box of goodies. Plus she was so thoughtful and sent me some dog biscuit’s she found at a local farmers market.

Killian and Stuart loved them. They were very happy that they got a treat out of mommy’s foodie box. Yep, they call me mommy!

Here’s Killian enjoying his Beach Dog Biscuit. On a side note, He’s one good-looking little red dog.

   

Now to Stuart enjoying his treat. Again, on a side note, He’s got a face I could kiss all day.

  

Killian and Stuart devoured those biscuits, they each got one large biscuit and some stashed away for another special occasion.

Anna sent some local Provincetown Taffy, she was worried that the heat would melt them, but rest assure Anna they made it in perfect shape and they were the first item I tried out of the box. Yummy. I love Taffy. I ate a few pieces, then, stashed the rest for a day I really need a candy fix. I have a feeling they will make a good snack during our next stay at home movie date. Confession: I stashed all the pink ones for me, they are my favorite. Shhh.

Cape Cod Crunch, where have you been all my life?  Oh yeah, in Cape Cod. See this proves my point about traveling to all the states, I need to find gems like this. I see a granola, fruit and yogurt parfait coming soon.

Now this really intrigues me, I cannot wait to give this a try. I always try to do a Meatless Monday Meal and this looks perfect for a flavorful Tofu dish. I need to spice up my tofu meals, I have making the same grilled and baked tofu dishes all summer, so I am needing and looking forward to a change. I’ll be sure to post about it.

Anna sent her favorite salsa, it’s Southwest Style Salsa, Mild Flavor and All Natural, which I love, plus it has black beans in it, bonus. I think this will be perfect for my Crock-Pot Chicken Tacos.

I love shortbread cookies and love getting them at Christmas Cookie Exchanges. So I was really excited to try this savory flavor. All’s I can say is it did not disappoint. Wow, it was terrific.  Salted Rosemary. Amazing combo. I found them on-line and cannot wait to place an order for these cookies and a few others that sounded too good not to try. They are made by  Lark Fine Food, so  if you’re looking for a wonderful adult cookie, they have several varieties to choose from.  I also think these are going to make great gifts for the holiday season.

Now to the Jams. Anna and her husband have a business and make and sell these at the Farm Market. She sent a Tomato Jam and A Cherry Jam. I have never tried Tomato Jam and Anna said to use it like you would ketchup. Their Company is Little Bay Jams. How cool is that?

 

As for the Cherry Jam, look out almond butter you’re gonna meet a jam that will blow your crust off! It was instant love, this Cherry Jam is darn tasty. I loved the sweetness of the cherries and it spread so nice.

 

Well Anna, thank-you so much for a great box of local food items, and for the homemade jams and card you made, you really did a great job of making this Foodie Pen Pal, One Happy Gal! Plus I just love your blog and all the creative cards ideas that you post, plus the bonus of having the opportunity of watching the craft unfold on YouTube is priceless. Thank-you my Cape Cod Friend.

I sent my August Foodie Box to Meghan over at A New Adventure. Go on over and visit her blog, she has some really great posts that I really enjoyed reading. One of her posts was on making Parsnip Fries. They look amazing.

July Foodie Pen Pal Revel Day is here and I am super excited to share what I received this month. My July Pen Pal is Danielle over at Piggy Tummy. Cutest Blog Name EVER! She sent me some amazing stuff. Look at this spread of eats.

I’ll start with the jars:

  • Mild Giardiniera
  • Peperoncini & Feta Sandwich Spread
  • Hot Giardiniera

Yummy. I am very familiar with Giardiniera, but have not had it in a long time, so I am very happy to have received 2 jars of  it.  If you have never tried it, I highly recommend it. My grandmother use to make her own and we would have it topped on Italian Sausage Sandwiches, here’s the Skinny on Giardiniera:

Giardiniera   (noun)       jar-di-ne-ra

Italian meaning “from the garden”

  • a combination of pickled hot peppers, celery, carrots, cauliflower, spices, steeped in a light vinaigrette.
  • used as a condiment on a variety of foods, sandwiches, pasta, omelettes, chili, soup
  • the #1 condiment served on the famous Chicago Beef Sandwich 

Along with the Giardiniera was this crazy fun sandwich spread. I have never seen it before, it’s made  by Mezzetta, and the flavor is Peperoncini & Feta. I immediately went online to the website and looked for recipes, and was really pleased to find several with my name on it. Check them out:

Macaroni and Cheese with Peperoncini and Feta Spread

Peperoncini, Kalamata and Tomato Crostini

Greek-Style Wrap with Peperoncini and Feta Spread

The website also suggests using the spread in or on any dish that you would use Mayo or Mustard on.  Here’s a few other ways to use the spread.

Other fun usage ideas:

• Egg or tuna salad
• Sausage sandwich
• Burgers

Now here’s a little treat I have never tried. Pina Colada Mallow Bites. They were amazing, I wanted to save some to top a sweet potato, but before I knew it, they were gone. My husband and I killed that bag like it was miniature sized.

Also received some BBQ seasoning. I love to BBQ and I am always looking for a new flavor. Really looking forward to trying this flavor out.

Some protein bars, which are both flavors I have never tried. They were a perfect snack on a long car ride I had to Upper Michigan to visit my parents, and they tasted great. I always like to pack easy foods I can eat on the road and the foodie box came just in time.

The card Danielle made was too cute, it was beautifully made, which I really loved. I’m a scrapbooker and I appreciate the work that goes into making your own cards. The last item I tried was the Unreal Chocolate Peanut Candies. They are the healthy version of the famous M&M candies. I have to tell you, I liked these better than M&M’s.

Wow, I really hit the jackpot this month. Danielle, thank-you so very much for a really fantasist foodie box, you did an amazing  job.

I sent a July Foodie Box to Christy over at Chocolate Covered Diamonds. Go on over and visit her, she is lovely and her blog is so much fun.
