Foodie Pen Pals

The Lean Green Bean
I was so excited when I found out about the Foodie Pen Pal program that Lindsay over at The Lean Green Bean puts together. How much fun is it to get a box of food in the mail each month?
This month I received a box of southern goodies from Debra of Granny’s Down Home Southern Cooking.
For those of you that don’t already know, I live in a small ski town in Alaska. We don’t have mail delivery service; instead I have a PO Box that I rarely check unless I know something good is heading my way.
I cant remember why, but when I picked up my box from the Post Office I was STARVING.  I was afraid if I opened the  box before eating there may be things that wouldn’t make it home for photos.
Its a good thing I held out.
If I hadn’t  instead of looking at a picture of Moon Pies you most likely would be looking at a picture of empty wrappers. I love moon pies & they are even better when they are packaged in 100 calorie servings:)
Thanks Debra for helping me watch my girlish figure.
I’m originally from New Orleans &  I love that Debra sent me a box full of southern goodies. Everything brought me right back home.
The Saban Sauce is made by Alabama’s head football coach, Nick Saban. The proceeds from this BBQ sauce go to Nick’s Kids Fund   which is a “non-profit organization dedicated to supporting children, family, teacher and student causes.”
Have you ever had fried green tomatoes? If not your missing out! I’m kind of weird about tomatoes; sometimes I like them sometimes I don’t. Serve them to me  dipped in some batter and fried and I’ll gobble them up quick.
I’m pretty excited to try out the fried green tomato batter mix. I might throw some zucchini in with the tomatoes since it is suggested on the box.
I was super excited about the fried  pork skins and once I opened the bag they didn’t stand a chance. I’m sure if your not from the south they might seem kind of gross or weird. Trust me they are a crispy & salty party in your mouth.
Thanks again Debra!
Check out the box of treats I sent to Heather at Heather’s Creative Concoctions.
