Foodie Pen Pals


I love this day of the month when I get to thank my pen pal that sent me such delicious food and mention the pen pal I sent to.

I received my package from Christine at Jogginhappy.


Can you see all the stuff?  I love the mustard.  I used the Cholula hot sauce to make burritos this week, they were fabulous and hot, Yummy.   The tea was the right side of sweet for me.  The twists are so yummy.  001 I could eat them all at one time.  I did not I spread the joy out over several days, lol.  I have enjoyed the Museli every morning.  Great change from my normal oatmeal.

squash 007  This was my favorite item.  I need to find these in my town.  It was a great after work snack.

The hubs made some salsa yesterday so I finally got to try the

002 these and the salsa made for a wonderful dinner.

Thank you so much Christine.  Yes Christine I agree if you like spice you like mustard Smile.

I sent a package to Marla.  She is a blog reader.  Her and her husband do some amazing work.  Hopefully you all can meet her someday.


And now it’s time for some details about Foodie Pen pals.  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 pen pal pairing via email. It will be your responsibility to contact your pen pal 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 pen pal!
-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 Pen pals 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 pen pal 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 Pen pals 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.

If you’re interested in participating for July, please CLICK HERE to fill out the participation form and read the terms and conditions.

You must submit your information by July 4th as pairings will be emailed on July 5th!
*If you’re from somewhere besides the US, Canada or Europe and want to participate, send me an email and I’ll see if we get enough interest this month!

I love this project that Lindsey has put together.  All the work that she has to do.  When I found out about it 2 months ago there were about 600 participating.  Now there is over 1000.  Thank you Lindsey for all that you do.
