June Foodie Pen Pals: Nips and Nibbles

I was going to write a long post about this months Foodie Pen Pals, but then I started reading the enclosed letter from Amber, of Slim Pickin’s Kitchen, and I realized that I really, really needed to share the letter with everyone because this girl is funny.  I read it more than once because she made me laugh so much. 
In fact, let me restate that in a manner that truly conveys my feelings about her sense of humor..
*clearing throat*
This girl is OMGWTFBBQ funny.

See, caps make all the difference.

So, I give you the enclosed 4 page (not double sided) letter from the funniest woman I know from South Carolina.  

See, she’s funny and did a much better, and wittier, job describing everything in the box than I could.

Amber asked what my favorite thing was and, honestly, I haven’t broken into the nips yet or even opened the bag of pretzels (though the Bloody Mary mix is making a trip to Boston this weekend).  But, just going on pure weird, it has to be the Irn Bru and boiled peanuts in a can. I like weird, what more can I say?

And, if you’re curious as to what boiled peanut hummus may be like, here’s her recipe.

Anyone who gets Amber in the coming Food Pen Pals better treat her well. And send her coconut water. Lord knows that girl needs to hydrate with all of those adult beverages she enjoys.
