I’ve had a wonderful weekend and I can’t wait to tell you all about it…I’ll be posting again later tonight but first things first…I need to share with you my foodie penpals package for this month!

The Lean Green Bean
 This month I was paired with Michelle from Oregon! She sent me a package full of different treats from around her area…the contents were definitely things new to me and interesting:

That last piece is toffee…sorry it isn’t too clear in the picture 🙂 I haven’t gotten to try everything yet (I’m a little scared to try the trout jerky to be honest, but Kevin will be my ultimate taste tester..lol) but the things I have tried were fun. Thanks again Michelle!
You can see the package I sent to Heather here! 

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!

Thank you Lindsay again for organizing this fun program!

Hope everyone is having a good Monday morning so far, I will catch up with you guys later tonight 🙂
