Foodie Pen Pals: October!
Post-Homecoming Coma is about to commence.
Before that happens, though, I need to give credit where credit is due.
Laura knew just what I wanted (probably because she emailed me to ask).
I said I liked flavor.
I said I liked spice.
I said I like salty and sweet.
Laura delivered (well, the postman delivered for her).
Inside this beautiful box of Texas treats?
- Salted caramels (my newest favorite indulgence, thank you very much)
- Melinda’s Habanero Ketchup (can’t WAIT to try this, I got some meat just waiting to be a spicy burger)
- Clint’s Hot Texas Salsa (I wanna bathe in it)
- Chihuahua de Mexico Wood Smoked Salt that I want to use asap
- Spicy Pepper Tanka Buffalo Cranberry bar (say WHAT?!?!)
- DL Jardine’sBlazin’ Saddles hot sauce
“Pimento Olive Almonds” – also known as almonds covered in chocolate, covered in more chocolate
Laura, you got my tastebuds in a tizzy, and I can’t thank you enough!!
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. *US Residents only please at this time- hopefully we can expand soon!*
