Today is the last day of June, so that can only mean it’s Foodie Pen Pal’s reveal day! This month Jane from her lovely blog , The healthy bee hive was paired up with me to send me some foodie fun. She sent me some really fun things, not only that; she also sent some treats for my girls. That was very kind of her. Thank you Jane!
Stop by The Lean Green Bean to see everyone else’s posts. Thank you for another great month Lindsay!
She packed the box very well. I was surprised to see so many things come out of it. It was never-ending!
Jane sent the cutest card I’ve ever received!
It couldn’t be more perfect for foodie pen pals!
Amani loved it too! She couldn’t stop playing with it. She thought it was the funniest thing.
Everything she sent was sooo delicious! Of course, my favorite thing was her homemade blueberry mint jam! It is delicious. I have half of the jar left. I’m trying to savor as much as I can because I don’t want it to finish. Blueberry is my favorite jam flavor. The mint is very subtle but at the same time, refreshing. I need your recipe Jane!!
She also sent the girls a box of giddy treats. They are biscuits that taste like graham crackers (only tastier and more nutritious) with strawberry fruit dip. They are made of whole grains with nothing artificial and real fruit. You should look for these for your kids or even yourself. They are so good!
The whiteblossom tea was also very good. I actually had been meaning to try that one. It went very well with the granola cookie. The whole family has been snacking on everything Jane sent us. The next person Jane is paired with is very lucky.
You can check out what I sent Lena on her blog, Lena on the Beach.
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 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!
