Guest Blogging: Mail foodie goodness

Hey, wait, you’re not Lori! What’re you doing here?

I’m guest-blogging you silly people! Lori is underwater (not literally) trying to get all her grad apps and such done so I’m tending (literally) to some bloggy business. Normally, I live over at skeet’s place (Skeeter is our guinea pig) and stick to politics and the like. Anyhow, onward, to the blogging!

Oh, procrastination! How you have bested us with your alluring laziness and welcoming slothy embrace.

We have been remiss in blogging about a quite-the-lovely package as part of the Blogging By Mail (3) food-picture-recipe exchange. About a week or so ago we received a box of tastiness and soon-to-be-tastiness from Stef (aka Stefoodie) in faraway Pennsylvania. Stef sent us a bag of Pan de Sal (Filipino bread) along with the recipe for it, a recipe for Ensaymada Espesyal (another kind of bread), her local food-shop flyer, a picture of her kitchen and a nice note.

Unfortunately, the Pan de Sal through either mail mishap or just transit flattened into little squished bread bits, but we’re hoping to whip up a batch of our own. The recipe is super double top secret because Stef is writing a cook book, but I tracked down another one online so you can get the idea.

Here’s all the stuff that popped out of the wonderful box:

The flyer(s)


Nikko (not in the box) on the flyer(s)

The note

Stef’s kitchen

So there you go! Despite our lazitude, we managed to get this up. We’re sending out our package a bit late tomorrow full of tasty vittles.

Thank you, BBM3 Friend (aka Stefoodie)!

Hey Ervy! Let Lori know that I sent out her SP6 package today...I hope it gets there before Thanksgiving! (No particular reason really, haha)

hi cyncyn, I think Nikko wanted to eat the camera lens cap. He's always hungry! Very fitting for the "foodie goodness" post, I suppose.

hey super secret sp6, I think lori will be excited. And it'll come not a moment too soon cause she could use some through-the-mail-excitement and something to take her stress away (even if only for a bit).

mahalo plenty for the bbm3 package which i received yesterday! loved the note, pictures and card and also the recipes, and oh, chocolate almond crunch is almost gone.....

howdy, debbie! (it's funny cause howdy is like aloha but in Texas)

Glad you enjoyed our package. Careful of the almond crunch, it's more addictive than most druggies.
