A Good Friend Will Ship You a 6 lb Box of Beans

...but a REALLY GOOD friend will surprise you with a 6 pound box of heirloom beans. And a bag of crimson popcorn!

My friend Kel surprised me today with a bangin box of heirloon beans from Rancho Gordo. Their site has some of the coolest beans I have ever seen and a bunch of mouth watering recipes that I can't wait to try.

I especially can't wait to cook the beans on the far right (also pictured at the bottom) that the girls are saying look like miniature cows. And you all know how cute a miniature cow is.

I had to try the crimson popcorn already :-) Very good; it pops up small but light and fluffy and very, very white against little hints of the crimson germ.

I know this is a very public thank you but for those of you who do not know, Kel (of Kel's Closet, check it out, it's a cool fashion blog) is not purchasing a single article of clothing for herself for an entire year and yet she just shipped me a box of heirloom beans. Kel and I have never actually met or even spoken on the phone. We met though our food journaling site NutriMirror.com and she just graciously shipped these beans to me because she knew I would love them. And I do.

So thanks Kel. I owe you one. I'll think of this as an early Birthday present--and certainly one of the most memorable packages I have ever received!

Cheers, friend!
