Technical difficulties made this not go out on Friday, when it was scheduled too. I'm guessing operator error - my bad! :(
This was my 4th month participating in the Foodie Pen Pals program from The Lean Green Bean Blog. I was excited to find out my pen pal was from Texas. I don't know much about Texas, but Michelle excitedly emailed me about putting together a great package and really peaked my interest when she asked me my favorite football team. Of course that would be my Green Bay Packers and I wondered what she was going to do with that information.
The box came a week or so ago and unfortunately it looked saturated and soggy. Something didn't hold it's seal. I instantly ripped the box open and found that Michelle had gone the extra effort to read my blog and find out more about me and my difficulties in finding toasted sesame seed oil. She too went on a hunt and couldn't find any, so she packaged up some of hers. Unfortunately, the seal didn't hold and all the oil leaked out. Luckily, nothing else was damaged as everything else was wrapped up nicely. (It did smell really good.)
And do you see that Packers cup - how awesome is this?
One Chelle Of A Mug and makes custom glassware. Mugs, pint glasses, wine glasses, cocktail glasses, pilners - you name it, she can do it. I'm not sure I'm ever going to drink out of it because it's for my team and needs to go in my memorabilia case but seriously - this is awesome.
They do need to be hand washed, no diswasher, soaking or microwaving them. But they can be put in the freezer for a frosty mug. I will have to keep this in mind for future gifts!
