My Vegan Care Package
I think this is the 3rd time I've done Lindsay's Vegan Care Package Swap! It's such a cool idea and you get to "meet" people across the country who share the same interest in vegan food as you.
This year, my partner was Monika in North Carolina! And since I had just moved from New Orleans to New England, I was unsure if I'd be able to find really cool stuff to send (especially since she specified she liked spicy food....argh.....New Orleans would have been the best place for that!!). I usually like to include a souvenir or two of where I live, but that proved to be more difficult here, as it's not quite as "touristy" as New Orleans, lol. Oh well, hope I did ok.
She sent me some awesome stuff, including some locally made fig jam. How cool!
(check out the super cute card with the kitty and the owl!!)
(who doesn't love chocolate? And I love getting local stuff)
(local fig jam!! Excited to try it...I've never had fig jam)
(awesome mug. I think I've used it everyday since I got it!)
And she included really great coffee too! And the "Celebrate Vegan" cookbook.....the recipes look great. I've already bookmarked a ton. And one cannot have too many vegan cookbooks :)
Thank you, Monika, for this amazing package!! I love it all....and I'm definitely going to keep doing this yearly care package swap.
Have any of you done this care package swap? (Feel free to link to your goodies in the comments below, if you did Lindsay's care package swap) If not, you should definitely try it next year.
