I sent a box to Molly over at Hungry, Hungry Runner if you would like to see what I sent.
However today I want to talk about what I received, from Rachel (who is a reader not a blogger).
Rachel, like myself, is named Rachel and a vegetarian.
She graciously sent me a wonderful box filled with these delectable goodies:
I love getting Trader Joe goodies since I don't have one near me (always such interesting things to choose from there). So the raisin rosemary crisps and mango slices were a nice surprise and very delectable.
She included one of my favorite post gym snacks, Larabar. I didn't even get a nibble as my son Andrew made off with it. Such is life with kids.
Rachel also included several single serve packets of peanut butter, which I love to put in my lunch for work.
The "piece de resistance" however was the salsa.
I am a HUGE fan of things spicy and this hot salsa certainly hit the spot.
Thanks so much Rachel for your wonderful package.
Be sure to head over to The Lean Green Bean to see what everyone else received.
Do you think you would like to join the Foodie Penpal program? If so here is an explanation and contact information for Lindsay.
Here’s a detailed explanation of the program:
-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.
For February this fantastic program will be open to US AND Canadian residents.
If you would like to join be sure to e-mail Lindsay email@example.com by February 4th.
