My First Foodie Exchange Package from Italy !

I love the idea of meeting new friends through my blog that's why I joined The Daring Bakers, The Daring Cooks, Kulinarya Cooking Club and now Foodie Exchange which is:
A group for foodies from around the planet who wish to exchange their local food specialties as a care package with other foodies
I received my first foodie exchange package today from Rossella of Milan, Italy. I felt like a little girl opening a present on Christmas day-- look what she sent me! Penne pasta, Extra-virgin Olive Oil, Nutella, Lentils, Pesto, Saffron, Oregano and Tomato Paste. Aside from the food, she also included a dish cloth, a hand-made bag and a mini Italian recipes book. She also enclosed a recipe for risotto--so thoughtful of her :)
Thank you Rossella for sending a very thoughtful foodie package! I love everything you sent!

Wow! That's so cool! I went to check the site but it limits you for further info. Anyway, the concept is good.
