I've just returned from a very special vacation in the southwest visiting several national parks and I'll have a lot to share with you soon. But before I get to that I have a bit of house keeping to take care of.
I recently joined a Vegan Food Swap organized by fellow Ohioan Cat at The Verdant Life. She has a lovely blog and I thought it just sounded like a fun idea and great way to shake things up just a tiny bit. I was the "lucky recipient" of Celeste's gift box. Celeste has a sweet and informative blog called Growing Up Veg. Her package arrived promptly on schedule and at a moment when I happened to be VERY hungry. I had to force myself to take a few pictures before I dove into the goodies. I immediately opened the Bean & Rice chips and enjoyed them thoroughly throughout the day. They were delicious! I was particularly excited about the eclecticism of the package she put together for me. I love variety and she really delivered! I've worked my way through the kale chips, sour worms, and hazelnut butter (my favorite so far). All were very enjoyable. I look forward to the instant dosa mix (an Indian pancake made with rice and black beans) and bee free honey (made with apples!). I highly recommend the food swap to others looking for a bit of a food surprise. A very big thanks to Celeste and Cat for tons of fun in a box!
