Foodie Pen Pals and Giveaway winner

Happy Tuesday everyone! I hope your week has been off to a great start. Mine is chugging a long with no real clear cut mission. Its the last few weeks of my summer break before it is back to work with a whole new set of kiddos so I am ok with it chugging along a bit slower :o)

Today Is Foodie Pen Pals Reveal day and I also have a give away winner to announce for the Drink Chia giveaway.

My box was sent to Monica over at Ants and Quilts and I received my package from Robin from Red Robin's Nest.

I always have some much fun coming home and being greeted by a fun box waiting for me on my front porch. This was no different. Robin sent me a fun box from Texas with some locally themed goodies.

In my box of goodies I got chips and salsa, and assortment of teas, vanilla cookies, local Texas honey and orzo with green beans and onions. 

I am a huge Honey lover so when I saw the familiar bear peeking out at me I did an internal cheer to myself. I ran out of honey this week so this became my savior. I drink my coffee black with a little honey so he came in handy. The little honey bear also made an appearance in this weeks canning venture. 

I have not yet tried any of the other goodies because I recently came off of my detox so there are certain foods I can not eat. I am looking forward to trying the Orzo... that  flavor combo is definitely right up my alley.  I look forward to trying the chips and salsa at the next family function. I would open it at the house but I am afraid I may eat the whole bag... I am a sucker for chips and salsa. 

Thank you again Robin for such a fun package and thanks to Lindsay for hosting. 
If you would like to join in on the fun next month check out Lindsay's info and rules on participating. It's definitely a fun way to get some new food finds sent right to your house and to meet some awesome people who love food just as much as you do.

Now on to the Winner of the Drink Chia giveaway

Ciao and Foodie Love



  1. What a great Foodie Penpal box. Everything looks so good. What type of chips are they?

  2. I'm glad you enjoyed your goodies. That is a good call on waiting to share the chips and salsa. They are addictive and they only sell them in a big bag so the single serve portion control version isn't an option :)
