Um, guys?

Where did September go?

Seriously. One day it was Labor Day weekend…and then I blinked and now it’s October! Yeesh.

But you know what time it is! And I don’t mean pumpkin-spice-whatever-latte time.

Foodie pen pal reveal time! This month my pen pal was Shannon, a senior photojournalism/theatre/dance student from Texas! She sent me a box of food straight from her Texan heart, including a bottle of Stubb’s spice rub, a healthy trail mix complete with Texas pecans, and a fun new food to experiment with: a plantain! I’ve seen them used before and eaten plantain chips, but had never bought one to experiment with myself. I love trying new things! I also got some apple chips and almond butter – perfect healthy snacks to fuel me through my workouts. Hooray!

Helpful, as always.

Thanks for the goodies, Shannon!
