Blogging by Mail 4: Music Edition

BBM package

In this edition of Blogging by Mail, I received a foodie gift package Mary of The Plane Jane. She lives in the Asian part of San Diego, hence the package contents: Chinese alomond-chocolate wafer rolls, tempura batter mix, an issue of Everyday Food (with lots of streamlined recipes), a crabby bookmark, a cute postcard, homemade peanut butter cookies (I LOVE peanut butter), a handmade card, a variety of teas (not pictured) and a mix CD.

BBM4 contents

What? A CD’s not edible. It does have to do with BBM, as Jason of Food Ninja dubbed this round “Music Edition.” Mary passed on her favorite songs to me, including “(If I Knew You Were Coming) I’d Have Baked a Cake” by Ethel Merman and “I Want a Little Sugar in my Bowl” by Nina Simone. All were feel-good songs that would be perfect for a dinner party. Thanks, Mary!

This package definitely wins for craftiest gift. Don’t forget to check out Mary’s crafty blog for more of her creations!

    […] BBM4 (Blogging By Mail, #4) is a totally neat food swap that Amy of purplepinkandorange told me about and I joined in on. I haven’t recieved my package yet, but my partner got hers! I wasn’t sure what to send, but I’m glad she enjoyed it. There were a few things I wanted to send that I couldn’t find at the store, particularly a “red bean snowball” – this is a sweet treat, of a dough with red bean inside, and powdered sugar outside. It’s chewy and sweet. I hope they have some at the store soon. I think they didn’t have any because they had all the stuff out for Chinese New Year. I’ll post a picture of them later when I can get some. Cat:  […]
