This month, I received my Foodie Pen Pal Box from Dr. Ayla in the Vancouver area. And what a cornucopia of goodies she sent. We were blessed with loads of goodies from her very own garden.
An apple, with a handmade cozy to protect it.
more scrumptious garden goodies- potatoes and rosemary in their own personalized potato sack and some garlic
sun gold tomatoes fresh off the vine- delicious.
Who doesn't like chocolate? How about chocolate shortbread cookies with cacao nibs? I might try to recreate these with our Hawaiian cacao.
I just opened these up yesterday. And while not a huge fan of figs- unless they are in fig newtons, these are Good. Loaded with figs, olives and seed- I'm sure these would go great with some hummus.
Ooh- look a pretty pink box all wrapped up revealed upon opening these lovely chocolates from the Granville Market. I've sampled the strawberry heart. Not sure if I'm willing to share these.
thank you Dr. Ayla for the wonderful food! XOXO
