Ok friends, why oh why did it take me so long to join in on the Foodie Penpal-ness? I was super stoked for the package and had so much fun sending my package (it gave me a great excuse to finally explore our local Amish market!) and I can’t WAIT for July.
Check out the amazing goodies from Elizabeth…
Inside my package… (twss?)
All sorts of fun goodies!!
A lot of fun local things from Michigan, and some recipes that I can’t wait to try! Hubs is much more of a granola fan than I, but I’m certainly growing into it (I think it’s because I don’t eat yogurt). The dried cherries were an AMAZING addition to my salad the other night…perfectly sweet and had the consistency of a dried cranberry. Deeeeelicious!
And now it’s time for some details about Foodie Penpals.
-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 Penpals 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.
