Anyway, on to the post for today. I have been participating in a monthly event started by the very lovely Lindsay over at The Lean Green Bean called Foodie Penpals. I love participating in this event simply because having a penpal has always fun, and I like getting the chance to try new foods from different people and places. If you would like to know more about the program, please follow the link here. You have until the 4th of the month at 9pm to enter your information and be included in the next list of Foodie Penpals.
I had the honor of receiving a very nice package from Chris and Amy White over at A Couple in the Kitchen. Please stop by their blog, its very cute and they have shared some wonderful recipes. Chris and Amy sent me a nice, themed package for the March Foodie Penpals. The theme of my package was "Foods With Misleading Names", and I loved it. Very creative package guys!!!
They also sent me a very nice letter explaining all the misleading food names, which was also very cute.
Chris and Amy wrote--
"First we have Turtles-not the reptile (thankfully...), but the chocolate, nut, caramel confection which is one of our favorites."
"Next, some Swedish Fish. Sure they are shaped like fish, but there is no seafood involved. And what makes them Swedish?"
"Next, these mushroom shaped cookies/crackers dipped in chocolate. How super cute are those?"
"How about some homemade Meyer lemon curd? "Curd" is what is leftover after making cheese, but this is simply sugar, lemon zest and juice, and egg yolks. No cheese! And, might we suggest spreading it over "shortbread"."
"Shortbread. It's not really a bread, it's a cookie. And why is it "short"?"
"Finally, some pico de' gallo, which means "Rooster's Beak". Not to worry, there are no rooster beaks in this yummy salsa, but it does have a little "bite" to it."
Chris and Amy said they were trying to have a little fun and amuse themselves as well since the winter had been so grey. Well, Chris and Amy, I was very amused and I really enjoyed my package. Thanks so much, and I can't wait to try some of the recipes you all share over at your Blog.
Again, if you would like to participate in Foodie Penpals, please follow this link to sign up by April 4th @ 9pm.
Thanks for stopping by. Comments and questions are always welcome!!!
Have a beautiful, blessed day!!!
