February Foodie Pen Pals


I really need to start getting my pics up faster because I end up not having them available in time for my foodie pen pal posts!

Once again I have the best foodie pen pal who sent me awesome, wonderful stuff and gave me a new blog to be obsessed with… so win win for everyone?

First things first a fun down of foodie pen pals (aka most fun thing ever.. thank you TWINO for getting me onto this!)

-On the 5th of every 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 are 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 Penplas is open to US & Canadian 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 interested in participating for March, please send  an email to Lindsay at theleangreenbean@gmail.com and include the following information:
-Your full name
-Your email address
-Your blog name/address
-Your twitter handle (if applicable)
WHETHER YOU ARE A US RESIDENT OR CANADIAN RESIDENT. – this is SUPER important so you get on the right list!

Sign by March 4th in order to be on the list!!!! Lindsay is very prompt for someone who has singlehandedly organized this now huge event, which is awesome and I totally want to be her… its fine

 It is such a good way to get more invested in the community and you get the joy of giving and receiving… this post should really be titles everyone wins!
So this month I received a package from the lovely Debbie of accidentally delish… who is just amazing… please read her blog so you can like her as much as I do!!! Debbie wanted to send me new things I had never tried and I of course was more than down for that!!!
One she sent the cutest decorates package, with treats that were also wrapped in cute little bags and ribbons…. loving the personalized details and will have to do that next month!
In my box I got Udi’s gluten free chocolate chip cookies… I go the package Sunday… Liza and I finished the cookies yesterday… oops
A Cafe Balance Bar chocolate almond biscotti bar (had it for breakfast today with coffee and it was perfect!)
A Cliff Kids Z Bar in blueberry flavor which I had yesterday as a snack in class. YUM… I will be buying these from now on!
Two fruit leathers.. one strawberry and one strawberry banana.. both eaten as snacks yesterday.. no will power its fine!
Two Ning Xia packets which are like an herbal nutrient infusion packet that I am pumped to try
Mini Packet Late July cheddar crackers which will be a snack tomorrow!

Not only did she send yummy treats but a recipe for Banana Bread Hummus (YUM) which I will be trying as soon as I figure out why my baby Kitchen Aid food processor love of my life won’t turn on….
