Foodie Pen Pals - October

This is my second month in Foodie Pen Pals and it was just as good as my first! 

This month, my pen pal was Kate from New Orleans, Louisiana!  She blogs over at Kate Is Eating, which is an awesome new blog for me!  New Orleans is one of my all time favorite cities to visit - we used to go to Jazz Fest every year when I was in college.  It's definitely a fun time so I was excited to see what Kate would send me!

And boy did she do a good job!

I'm definitely excited to use the "Slap Ya Mama" spice blend.  My husband and I love spicy and creole-type food, so it will be put to use soon!

And of course, the Cajun Jambalaya mix will definitely be involved in our dinner rotation too!

I have a secret sweet tooth and Kate hit it right on the head!  I've already eaten both of the chocolate bars she game me and I've been trying to hold out on that Praline, but my will power might not be strong enough to last me through the rest of the day!

She also included some Justin's Nut Butter - Chocolate Hazelnut and Maple Almond - both of which are already gone too.  They made THE best sandwich butters!

And lastly, a jar of some fig preserves that will likely be incorporated into my next baked good - I'm thinking thumbprint cookies are in order!

Thanks so much Kate for sending me and awesome October box!
