My package came from Rachel at My Naturally Frugal Family
So much great stuff! There was:
Israili cous cous and mango butter from Trader Joe's - my favorite store, but I've never tried either of these foods, so that's exciting.
Then she also sent along an energy packet, I'm new to these sorts of foods, but interested to try it.
The sprouted pumpkin seed mix I've been munching on here at work, and they are addictive!
A sucker, which was promptly nabbed by Skater Girl, as if she won't be getting enough candy this week!
I'm super excited about these Kashi chocolate squares. I'm obsessed with all things Kashi, and buy a lot of their products, but I've never seen this one before. I also brought one of them to work with me for an afternoon treat.
And finally, I had mentioned that I love local foods, and she sent along some locally sourced cornmeal! Can't wait to cook up some muffins or cornbread with that this weekend!
Thanks so much Rachel!
Okay, just in case that wasn't enough foodie fun for you, here's a picture of an amazing kale salad I made for a get together recently
The greens are dinosaur kale massaged with salt and olive oil, and squirted with lime juice. Then I topped the kale with roasted butternut squash, carrots and parsnips (tossed with olive oil and smoked paprika, bake for 30 minutes at 400) Finally I topped it all with some crushed red pepper, pumpkin seeds and feta cheese. Yum!! I could seriously eat this every. single. day.
Hope everyone has a safe and Happy Halloween!
