October Foodie Penpal!

AMAZING! What a super great, fantastic program! I missed it when I wasn't doing it. I got paired up with wonderful lady named Ceecee who lives in Vancouver. So, of course, being in Vancouver, she had all sorts of access to delicious finds! You can read up on her and her kitchen adventures here!

So, here we are:
  • Homemade Pumpkin Chia Granola - I ate half the bag upon opening it. OMGSOGOOD.
  • Chocolate covered dried banana - Also eaten as soon as I opened the package
  • Sea Salt Fusion Veggie Garnish
  • Vancouver's Hottest Salt and a tiny cute spoon to go with it
  • Hemp Hearts
  • Espresso Bean Chocolate Bar

This was great! Thank you so, so much Ceecee!

I'm on Day #5 of the Whole30 (which I'll update on later) so I'll have to wait until after to enjoy the chocolate bar and the other half bag of granola! It'll be such a treat after.

I was paired up with Theresa in Delta, BC. I made the package a spicy theme - Black Bean Chips, Spicy Jalapeno Salsa and Chili Chocolate Bar. Hopefully she enjoyed it! :) 

I can't wait until November when I get another match! So, want to get in on it!? This is all you need to do:


-On the 5th of the 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 treatsThe spending limit is $15The 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 can choose 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 & UK 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. So, I’m going to keep two separate lists and match US w/ US and Canada w/ Canada!***If you’re in the UK, please contact Carol Anne from This Is Rock Salt at rocksalt@thisisrocksalt.com to get involved!
So, now that you know the instructions - just go to Lindsay's website and get in on it NOW!!!! Seriously, who doesn't love mail and who doesn't love presents! 
Till next month... xo
