Foodie Pen Pals: October!

October 30, 2011

Post-Homecoming Coma is about to commence.

Before that happens, though, I need to give credit where credit is due.

That same day that I received an excellent package from Hannah , I also received one from Laura, the Oddest of the Ducks!

Hot and DANGEROUS!!

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?

“Pimento Olive Almonds” – also known as almonds covered in chocolate, covered in more chocolate

Jealous?

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!*

If you’re interested in participating for November, please send Lindsay an email at theleangreenbean@gmail.com and include the following information:
-Your full name
-Your email address
-Your blog name/address
-Your twitter handle (if applicable)

    I’m so glad you liked the package!!!! It was pretty strange to buy really weird things that I, myself, would never eat. haha!

    Glad to have you as my pen pal this month, girl! You’re the best :)
