Foodie Pen Pals: April – Alabama treats

While putting together my recent Months of the Week series, I came across all the Foodie Pen Pal posts I’d previously done and thought, hey, I should get back into that!

In my first month back, I’ve found that FPPs now swap in pairs (give to & receive from the same person), and I was matched up with Kellie from Alabama. She sent me a box full of goodies from her home state and farther afield, carefully padded with a rainbow’s worth of tissue paper 😉

In her note, Kellie told me several of the items were from her neck of the woods, including crackers from her family’s favorite place to eat out (Jason’s Deli), and a selection from Fayette’s local hot sauce & salsa company (I can never get enough salsa!).

Kellie even consulted with her son to decide on what to include for our son, and I can confirm that the fruit leather met with rave reviews from the 7-yo food critic in our house. I’m saving the tea for pre-long-run caffeinating, but I bet those sweet potato & cinnamon crackers aren’t long for this world 😉

Thanks, Kellie, for the great FPP box! It’s a nice way to get back into the swing of this thing; and if you’d like to join us for next month, click the image below.
