Spicey Honey Glazed Pork Chops & My Foodie Penpals!

My VIRGINIA Swag enjoying Kyra's birthday
opening up many Coke bottles for the Birthday Girl
[and maybe a Landshark or two.... not featured!]
Gotta love the fun of sending
AND receiving your Foodie PenPal package each month!
Daytona Beach Package OUT
The Lean Green BeanLindsay at the lean green bean introduced me to two lovey ladies this month.... Sarah from Quotidienne Moi out of NYC
and Sabrina from Fitlaughlove in VA {Sabrina be sure you show your husband the OTHER use for bottle-opener pictures!}.... check out their blogs, I subscribe to both!

I love this program.... too fun, meeting people, giving and getting great stuff... if you haven't done it you should pop over to Lindsay's site and sign up.... 

But when it's all said & done, to me it's all about the inspiration that arrives in that little box and while I ADORED the swag, devoured the pretzels & Salsa Fresca, relaxed with my tea.... I was inspired and made some INCREDIBLE porkchops featuring my VIRGINIA WILD FLOWER HONEY <3
