I wasn't sure how long it would take to get here, but I'm so excited that mail has been coming rather quickly! Here are the goodies that Kelley included in my package:
|Are you loving the flamboyant background on MY NEW KITCHEN?!? I can't wait to get our things and get some COLOR in there!|
Onward to the food goodies we got. Traders Joe's has an amazing spice called 21 Seasoning Salute. It's a blend of spices that you can use on just about anything, and I do! I use it on pork chops, chicken, pork roasts, steak, burgers! You name it, and it adds a fun little mix of flavor! I love that I don't have to use a ton of it to add amazing flavor to just about any dish! Next up we got some Monster Trail Mix from Archer Farms. This is maybe my favorite trail mix, and I love it even more since Gene will eat the peanuts I pick out of my servings! That's love right there! In front of that we have some Justin's Almond Butter including a flavor I've never tried: vanilla! I'm excited to try that with an apple! Before we left the states I picked up some of the Simply Balanced Fruit Strips from Target and we fell in love! There are no Targets in Okinawa, so I was happy to have more of these to toss in my cupboard for quick on the go snacks! One thing I got that I had never even heard of was the Skinny Girl Water Flavoring! Kelley gave me some in Apple flavor- you squirt it right into your water and can add as little or as much as you want!
Kelley is a fun foodie blogger over at Lavender and Cream! She actually went to the college I dreamed of leaving home and going to, St. Joe's in Philadelphia (where Nan is from, and her sister and brother [my great Aunt along with her son and great Uncle] still live, as well as one of Nan's sons [my uncle] with his family!) Things worked out differently and I ended up not even applying, but staying home and going to ODU! Back to Kelley! Hop on over to her blog where she'll be sharing all about the Japanese goodies I sent to her, including the cutest mustard for her boyfriend!
|I'm sure you can use it for more than just hot dogs though, like Philly street pretzels :D|
