August Foodie Penpals

This month I had the great fortune to be paired up with Tara! Tara is a blog reader of Healthy Living Blogs. She sent a lot of really great stuff! Most of the stuff I got was purchased on her vacation to Portland, Oregon. (Too funny, I was in Portland, Maine at the time!!)

My favorites were the Moonstruck Milk Chocolate and the Kettle Korn. I was able to enjoy a couple of handfuls of popcorn and a few squares of chocolate every night. Usually, I put food away, so I’m not tempted by it. However, things are different now. The food was out, but it didn’t call to me. I enjoyed it for what is was… food! Treats! Not love, comfort, or a band aid. I’ve come a long way, baby. This stuff tastes amazing ESPECIALLY when you are physically hungry for it!

Thanks again, Tara! 🙂
