It’s that time of the month again and this time I was paired up with Jennifer (she does not have a blog so I hope that she will get a chance to read this to see how much we enjoyed her package).
I love that she picked up local items for me to enjoy.
My chihuahua was going nuts when I first opened the box because he loves fruit. The apples smelled amazing and Digger has a keen sense of smell. You would think he was a hound dog.
Now that my husband eats more in line with what I do it’s fun to get my box because we both get excited about what is sent. Hot pepper chow-chow..ummmm.yes!
Digger would not let me get through everything before he was begging his dad for feed him an apple. I’m not sure what type of apple these are but they tasted like wine and were so freaking good. I need to find them in my town.
Everything was great including the Vidalia onion/peach hot sauce and I’ve put that on brown rice, chicken and veggies. My husband ate most of the black walnuts and he called dibs on the strawberry jelly.
And.for your viewing pleasure check out my chihuahua enjoying the apple with his dad because it’s so cute!
And now it’s time for some details about Foodie Penpals. In case you’re a new reader, here’s a reminder of what the program is all about:
-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 & European residents. Please note, Canadian Residents will be paired with other Canadians only. Same with Europeans. 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.
If you’re from the US or Canada and are in participating for November, please CLICK HERE (www.theleangreenbean.com/foodie-penpals/) to fill out the participation form and read the terms and conditions.8 Comments » << Making Things Simple Tuna With A Kick >>
