Squirrel Mail

"But friendship is precious,
 not only in the shade, but in the sunshine of life,
and thanks to a benevolent arrangement
 the greater part of life is sunshine"
-Thomas Jefferson

Lauren @ She's a Runner sent me the most amazing package today!!!
We did a little blog gift exchange, so I thought I would quickly share with you
the goodies I recieved from this gorgeous girlie :)

Question: Any fun suggestions
for meals or snacks I should make
with my new goodies?

Awwww what a great package :) I love the sweet notes, and of course the food looks delicious. Maybe you could crumble the bars and brownie bits into yogurt and have them with some fruit. That's my favorite way of eating them :)

What a great package to receive. Must have felt like your birthday! I'd just be sampling away not thinking one bit about trying to create anything out of the goodies LOL.

Aaah, I'm so jealous at your package! I wish I lived closer to you all, so I could exchange goodies, and well, have an access to all these great stuff!
I hope you'll enjoy them!

Jealous! What should you do with them? Uh, how about devour them asap. I kid! Make those babies last because they look amazing. ;)

Maybe you could crumble them up over oats? That never fails!

Those all look like some delicious treats. I am sure the brownie bites will be delicious with yogurt or oats!

chop up the bars and put them in yogurt with fruit and nuts.

Ooh. I bet that Domadarabar would taste good crumbled onto yogurt, or topped with some nut butter.

Serena said... [reply]

Oh my goodness! Everything looks absolutely amazing and delicious! I'll have to check these products out more closely, especially for my mom who is wheat-sensitive.

Oh my goodness that is an incredibly sweet package from Lauren!!! I would hang that card up where I could see it everyday, and keep the ribbon as well ;) Brownies with milk!! Brownies with a homemade chocolatey dip! I bet that sesame seed bar would be amazing crumbled over some ice cream or your regular bowl of breakfast deliciousness :) Actually, all of these look delicious on their own hehehe


p.s. I predict a closet raid on both of our behalf's in the future :p

The brownie bits and the dark chocolate crunch look soooo yummy! Hmm..maybe sprinkle on top of yogurts or banana soft-serve? :-D

The package is wrapped up so cute. You guys are amazingg. Enjoy your goodies and thank you for your comment today Kelsey it helped me change the course of my day. I admire your blog and I absolutely agree with Lauren you are a beautiful person...<3

Averie @ Averie Cooks said... [reply]

I'm crying now b/c of the true and pure joy and love that is in that package. Not the goodies, they are nice, but the sentiment. You and Lauren are BOTH amazing young women and I am so proud to call you both friends!

Per your email, cant wait til you tour the great state of CA and find yourself a home! Bay Area is amazing but it's chilly in the winter, I am a so cal girl b/c of weather but the culture and vibe of bay area rocks.

Aw, how wonderful! That's awesome; I'm loving all the gluten-free products. What did you send her? :)

Wow, that Domadara bar sounds wonderful! I've never heard of those before. I bet the sesame bread would be delicious with peanut/almond butter, and I would put those brownie bites in some banana soft serve. :)

Healthy. Happy. Well. said... [reply]

What a nice package!So sweet. I would definitely make a ultra mix out of the trail mix that you got. Add some dried fruit and it would be heaven!

Unknown said... [reply]

I just tried those NuGo bars too. They're pretty good. I liked the carrot cake flavor the best. I'm thinking you should make some protein ice cream with those brownie bites whipped in it. Yum.

Mary said... [reply]

Yummy! My diets not gluten free but that all looks so good I wouldn't mind snagging a few myself!

Anonymous said... [reply]

This is such a great/thoughtful package of goodies! :) I think you should just eat everything straight up. It looks too delicious not to!

Sarah said... [reply]

Ummmm, i would just gobble them up as they are. yum! x

T. Leah said... [reply]

WOW - you lucky lady! All those things look so Yummy!

I have no ideas on what you should make with any of that. I would enjoy it as it is. lol

Your last post about the pride parade reminds me of a story. One summer right after highschool, my family went to the Edmonton Exhibition, and my mom wanted to get one of those fake tattoo things painted on her arm. She opted for a rainbow, and not any rainbow, but a rainbow flag because she thought it looked nice. My brother and I told her what it meant and she did not believe us, so she went for it. Anyways, throughout the rest of the day, ladies kept hitting on her, and she finally realized why. She thinks it's pretty funny looking back.

I would just eat the chocolate bars straight up. ASAP! Haha! I'm always so jealous of blog exchanges. I don't ever see any cool food that I see on other blogs. Okay, I'll stop whining now...... :)

I just saw your package on Lauren's site! Such a nice exchange :)

And the e-mail I use for blogging is opened under a program named "squirrel mail" and everytime I check my e-mail I think of you! lol

Anonymous said... [reply]

Awwwww...... thats so cute!!!!
Suggestions...... freeze vanilla yogurt and put the brownie bits on top.
Put the trail mix in a salad for some extra crunch!!!
Most of the rest are bars.... which are usually best on their own!
Enjoy! Bon Appetite!
