I come from an area where we know a bit about barbecue ourselves (cough cough KC BBQ is the best cough cough) but I always love to try new sauces. She says it is great on meatballs, so that’s how I’ll have to eat it! (Bone Suckin Sauce? Meat BALLS? I can’t help it — I’ve got Beavis and Butthead laughter going off in my head like crazy!)
And what’s MO amazing than a gift from Missouri? Here’s what I got for Elizabeth:
My go-to gift item from Springfield is always Askinosie Chocolate. It’s an amazing bean-to-bar company that goes beyond fair trade to develop relationships with cacao farmers all around the world. (And the chocolate is just. so. good.)
I blog-stalked Elizabeth for a while and decided to make her a mix CD of local Springfield artists, since she obviously loves music. (Check out her Songs from the Unknown series!)
What’s the best local product from where you live? Have you ever participated in a swap like this?
