Foodie Pen Pal–September

Another month, another foodie pen pal. After my great experience with August, I decided to participate again!

This time my foodie pen pal was from Puerto Rico! Check out the super cute mailing label she made!

Ilka was super friendly and sent me a great box. IMG_1637
She told me that her daughter, Ilka Vanessa, and her had lots of fun putting it together.

And here is what was in my box this month. . .

Ilka works as a Spanish teacher at “SESO” and sent me a coffee mug. . .

And a cute burp cloth for Luke – so adorable! IMG_1646

And perhaps the thing I am the most excited about! A tostonera … to make tostones – fried plantains.

You put the slices plantains in the tostonera to flatten then before frying!

Thank you thank you thank you Ilka (and Ilka Vanessa!) for this super awesome and amazing box. I am so excited to try everything. I can tell you both put a lot of time, thought and effort into putting this box together and it is very appreciated. The little gift for Luke was especially thoughtful. Smile I hope your foodie pen pal box was just as awesome!
