I finally got to attend my first swap and it was all that I expected and more. I spent most of Monday getting my swap items ready. I ended up making small batches of several of my household staples – horchata, salsa casera and black bean dip. I was a bit nervous that there wouldn’t be much interest in my stuff, but it done got swapped!
I absolutely loved the energy and inherent friendliness that carried into the evening and although a bit intimidated at first, loved the bartering process.
I came home with:
Cocoa roasted almond-butter
Oven dried tomatoes in oil
Beer bread from Trent
Anise Pizzelles from Kate B.
Bruscetta & Eggs from the lovely couple whose names I’ve forgotten
The eggs and salsa were devoted to huevos rancheros yesterday. The tapenade and oven dried tomatoes were perfectly suited for the pizza dinner that I had planned for last night and the rest of the stash is slowly disappearing as the girl and I snack throughout the day.
