It’s the last day of July. That means it’s my friend/coworker Erica’s birthday, my uncle’s birthday, and, mostly importantly for our purposes, time to post about Foodie Penpals!
I was paired with Jessica, who doesn’t have a blog, but sent me a lovely email and it sounds like she has a great husband and 16-month-old son. She’s currently living in Kansas City and when she mentioned barbecue I knew that was what I wanted! I told Jessica that I’m fine with quality over quantity and I ended up with two great looking things. The Kansas City’s Cowtown Sweet Spot Barbeque Rub, looks delicious. And the packaging is great. I’ve never used a barbecue rub so I’m excited to see what I can do with it.
The sauce, World Famous Joe’s Kansas City Bar-B-Que Sauce looks amazing. And after reading the great description on the side of the bottle I really want to go to the little barbecue joint in the gas station.
Unfortunately I haven’t been able to use either the sauce or the rub since I’ve had such a crazy past few weeks. I’m excited for the chance though and I’ll make sure to post about what I make! Thank you so much Jessica!
I sent my package to Marie, who doesn’t have a blog, and who, in all honesty, I kept meaning to ask if she wanted to write a little thing for here, but I’ve just been too crazy. It happens, right?
