June Foodie Pen Pals Reveal!

The Lean Green Bean

I started doing the Foodie Pen Pals in March and have continued, but during my absence from blogging, I have failed to update what I have gotten each month.

This month I received my package from Brooke who blogs over at The Well Nourished Traveler. She sent me some stuff that I had never tried before, and even something that I was scared to try at first (although I don't really know why, but just was). Brooke also has the same "fear" of seaweed as I do and was kind enough to NOT include any in my package! Thanks Brooke!!!!

In my package I received:

-Steel Cut Oats
-Organic pumpkin seed cheddar crackers
-Organic whole wheat spaghetti noodles
-Fig and Hazelnut spread (this is what I was afraid to try)
-Some dark chocolate
-A cute little note!

When I opened the package the first thing I dug into were those crackers! Yum!!!! I was so afraid to try the fig spread. Like I said, I have no idea why.....I LOVE fig stuff, and hazelnuts......once I dug in, though, I couldn't stop! That stuff is so tasty. It has lemon zest in it and it shines through. Its very refreshing, not too sweet, and went so well with those crackers! I need to know where she got that stuff so I can go buy more! LOL!

I have always wanted to try steel cut oats since I eat oatmeal every morning for breakfast, but just haven't been able to break myself out of my normal cycle. Guess now I have NO excuse NOT to try them! I hear they are so much tastier than regular oatmeal.....maybe I am afraid I won't go back to cheap  oats! ;)

Pasta is not a big part of my diet (go ahead, send the hate my way). I will make something, though with these noodles.....hey, they ARE whole wheat! Maybe I will make some sketti to carb load before my next half!?!?! :D

As far as the chocolates can't go wrong with chocolate! <3 Yum!!!!

Thanks Brooke for all these wonderful goodies!
