Something tasty this way comes.
But first . . . thanks to everyone for sticking with me during a slow blog month while my personal life was anything but. All our junk has officially been moved from the old house to the new one and my happy little blog (one too many Bob Ross posts on Facebook lately) can finally return for you to put your foots, er, eyes on.
In other words . . . I’M BACK!
Now then, let’s get to it.
It’s that time, my favorite time, it’s Foodie Pen Pals time!
We’ll get the business out of the way first.
Click here to check out my previous posts where I use my entire Foodie Pen Pals box to wage culinary war against myself, Chopped style.

If you have no idea what I’m talking about, you must be new here and hopefully you catch on quickly.
I sent a box of “regional foods” to Vicente of Vittle Monster who blogs daily eats out of sunny California.
I received a box of food from Robin of Red Robin’s Nest, blogging out of Texas.
Newbies, you see how this all works right? Good.
Here’s my loot for the month, straight out of the mailbox!
Good thing The Pete was napping when the mailman came or he’d have snagged all the goods for himself.
Clearly Robin really wanted to see a challenge this month because the box she sent was jam packed full of random tasty stuff. Apple chips. Crackers. A praline. Trail mix. Tea. Honey. A Larabar. A Think Thin bar. Nut butters. Oh, and a recipe! All wrapped in a Whole Foods Grocery Bag and sealed with the prettiest tape you ever did see. Whew.
Now for the challenging part . . . to put all this together into one rocking meal.
Wait. The “rocking” meal was my AC/DC Big Balls post. How bout I just make breakfast instead.
Honestly, I didn’t think two thinks about my monthly self imposed challenge till yesterday, Tuesday morning, three days after we threw a huge party at our new pad . . . and only one day after we finished clearing out and cleaning the old place.
I’m either an excellent multitasker or a glutton for punishment.
It’s a good thing I waited though, because our abundance of leftovers (aka GOBS of hamburger buns) sparked a creative flicker that quickly became foodie pen pal fire. It’s late. Excuse the tired recycled imagery.
I’d like to present to you . . .
Foodie French Toast, Pen Pal Style
Here’s the haps.
