I participated once again in the Vegan Food Swap that Cat at The Verdant Life has been hosting for the last 5 months. This month I was matched with Kara, who doesn’t have a blog. I told her that I liked decaf teas, dark chocolate and interesting spices.
Little did I know that Kara is quite the tea aficionado and had several kinds in her collection to share with me. I need to get a diffuser so that I can use the loose tea leaves. She also sent me a bar of one of my favorite chocolates from Trader Joe’s, some veggie quinoa mix, a can of chili, a curry from Trader Joe’s, some veggie bouillon and some black bean soup mix. She also included scans of three of her favorite recipes for me to try. I am excited to have some new recipes to make and some new kinds of tea to keep me warm in my freezing cold office in the upcoming chilly months.
Kara did a great job, don’t you think she should start a blog too?
I sent a box to Rachel, who also doesn’t have a blog. My box to her was full of my favorite items found in one of my favorite local grocery stores. I included a bean mix, candy bars, veggie chips, and chai tea among other finds. I didn’t take a picture of any of it though, my month was a bit busy with a lot of traveling to my parent’s house for family events so I simply forgot to document the box I sent in all the hustle.
