September Foodie Pen Pals

Ay ay ay! It’s Monday was Foodie Pen Pals reveal day, and it’s been so long since I’ve participated in Foodie Pen Pals! This month, Ms. Lindsay changed things up a bit– she had us exchange in pairs! So while I was collecting foodie items to mail to Meghan, Meghan was gathering items to mail to me.

Before we delve into what’s inside the box pictured below, I’ll acknowledge the fact that I’ve been terrible about updating this thing. I’ve been busy with work and personal tasks, planning my European adventure (which now includes Brussels!!!), and whatnot.

“Party in the city where the heat is on, all night, on the beach till the break of dawn,” Will Smith couldn’t have described my trip to Miami any more accurately. During my long weekend in Miami for my cousin’s bachelorette party, we pretty much ate and drank our way through beaches, restaurants, and clubs. After being welcomed by the sight of palm trees, we stocked up for the weekend at Total Wine & More (for all you west coasters, like a BevMo) and Publix (a grocery chain) where I stumbled upon the world’s hugest avocado (below). The next few days, we sunbathed on a gorgeous beach at our condo, and discovered which foods I can add to my “hangover cure” list (following Perrier with lime, scrambled eggs and English muffins with heaps of butter, in case you’re wondering).
