The Fare Trade

giveaway - product review

Home! So happy to be reunited with The Sausage King of Chicago, who surprised me with this BuzzFeed video while I was gone.  You may remember that we didn’t have a traditional wedding, so it was really touching to hear Abe say these words.

So much mail to open! Most of it junk, but some – definitely NOT.


I really don’t understand why people don’t enter blog giveaways more (I’ve got one going for a couple more hours) – I win something a few times a year, and it’s usually pretty rad.  This one was hosted by Food GPS, and included a free box from The Fare Trade, a monthly Culinary Club where you receive a box of artisanal foods, curated by a chef.


Among the goodies Jeremiah Bacon selected “just for me” – this Jerusalem Artichoke Relish


…and Blackjack BBQ Sauce.


Plus recipes to use them in!


P.S. For those of you who have Comcast (unlike me) – Why Am I Doing This? – a very old film I did is now on demand for the rest of the month.  It’s under “Movies” —> “Movie Collections” —> “Cinema Asian America.”  Tamlyn and Sheetal are in it too!


Return of the Party in a Box


Remember when Del Real sent me a Party in a Box?  And then I had one?  Well, they sent another one.


This time I froze most of the tamales for later, but Abe and I have been enjoying the rice/beans…




…and pupusas!  PUPUSA.  Pupusa.  I can’t say/write that word just once for some reason.


Pupusa! I have another giveaway for you guys!  Your Party in a Box will be similar, but it won’t be vegetarian like ours.  There will be Chicken, Refried Beans, and Carnitas (plus a water bottle and backpack on wheels) – you can hear the last winner’s experience on Podcast Episode 21.  Enter below – since I’m trying to promote the new blog Instagram page, there are extra points for any activity there.  We’ve honestly been LOVING our meals, so you should definitely enter.  Good luck!
