Foodie PenPal day is one of my favorite days of the month. A surprise package full of yummy goodies. This month my package was from Julie in Arizona. Lots of snacks, tight up my alley .
|In the back is non alcoholic Butter Beer, I may have to watch Harry Potter again
|these did not last for very long
|Seitan Jerky, who knew
|Prickly Pear Honer from Julie’s trip to Vegas, she went with girlfriends, and I am sure had lots of fun
The pita chips were a hit in my house. I think I am going to make a Chobani Feta dip to go with the Rosemary flavor.
Thanks Julie for all of the goodies.
I sent my box to Lindsay (yes, the Lean Green Bean herself) this month, and you can read about it here
I have already signed up for next month… if you want to join in, here are the details and rules;
-On the 5th of the month, you will receive your
penpal pairing via email. It will be your responsibility to contact your
penpal and get their mailing address and any other information you
might need like allergies or dietary restrictions.
-You will have until the 15th of the month to put your box of goodies in the mail. On the last day of the month, you will post about the goodies you received from your penpal!
-The boxes are to be filled with fun foodie things, local food items or even homemade treats! The spending limit is $15. The box must also include something written. This can be anything from a note explaining what’s in the box, to a fun recipe…use your imagination!
-You are responsible for figuring out the best way to ship your items
depending on their size and how fragile they are. (Don’t forget about
flat rate boxes!)
-Foodie Penpals is open to blog readers as well as bloggers.
If you’re a reader and you get paired with a blogger, you can choose to
write a short guest post for your penpal to post on their blog about
what you received. If two readers are paired together, neither needs to
worry about writing a post for that month.
– Foodie Penpals is open to US, Canadian residents & UK residents. Please
note, Canadian Residents will be paired with other Canadians only.
We’ve determined things might get too slow and backed up if we’re trying
to send foods through customs across the border from US to Canada and
vice versa. So, I’m going to keep two separate lists and match US w/ US
and Canada w/ Canada!
***If you’re in the UK, please contact Carol Anne from This Is Rock Salt at firstname.lastname@example.org to get involved!
