my box came from my partner mindy of just a one girl revolution. the requirements include something written and mindy met that by writing a note and drawing flowers on the bag. it was a lovely touch when i opened the box.
she must have been spying on me because she sent some things that i love to snack on! yogurt dipped pretzels, nuts and chocolate…darry has his eye on the flavored coffee. it was hard to keep myself from digging in right then and there but i needed to take a photo first!
the hardest part about sending a package of food to a stranger-because we are all strangers at first, is that you never know what they might like. we must be mindful of the obvious such as allergies, aversions or religious requirements and are required to ask that before we shop for goodies. luckily for me, theresa of a spoonful of sunshine, my partner who would be receiving the box had no issues and i was able to send here what ever i wanted.
off to the international market i went. i sent her some chinese 5 spice powder because it is wonderful to bake with-try it in any recipe calling for cinnamon. japanese pepper, nanami togarashi is a red pepper blend that i love to sprinkle on stir fries. thai green curry is a favorite dish of mine too so not only did i send her a can of paste, i met the written requirement by writing up my favorite curry sauce recipe so that she could try it out. takis, guacamole flavored chips are the bomb! one of my guilty pleasures. and to round it out, seeds for herbs and flowers because i think everybody should try and grow their own food!
