Foodie Pen Pals are so much fun! Each month it gets better and better. Especially since I ask very nicely if they have a Trader Joe's and lately they have been saying YES! I am the luckiest girl alive. Make so mistake, Kristen of Beauty and My Feast may be one of my favorites! She actually called me with a very important question/story (I will let her tell you) and it was cool to talk in person and gush together how cool we think this program is! This time she picked an Italian Theme, and I have no idea why the fabulous pasta is so dark!
|My two favorite flavors|
|Can't wait to make this with asparagus, parm and a little bernaise|
|I eat this like candy!|
|I'm scared if this is as good as it looks|
|Vodka Sauce is my fave, how did she know??|
How do you partake in such awesomeness?? From Lindsay from the Lean Green Bean herself: -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
