Foodie Pen Pal: April 2012

Recently a friend of mine joined this amazing thing…Foodie Penpal! A product of the genius of Lindsay over at The Lean Green Bean, this fun project pairs people with penpals…that send food to each other. How cool!

I immediately had to sign up.

I eagerly awaited my pairings, and was lucky to get Melissa from www.thespatulaqueen.com as the person who would write to me. I could not wait for my package to arrive! And then the day came! What would be inside???

It was so fun to open it up!

There was coffee (she must know me so well!) and chocolate (really, REALLY well), and chocolate peanut butter, granola bars, and seasonings. She even sent some homemade chocolate oatmeal chunk cookies with a recipe. Seeing as my five-year-old gobbled up the cookies before I could even finish unpacking the box, I have a feeling we’ll be seeing more of these in our household.

Mom even tried some of the goodies. Mmmmm…chocolate peanut butter!

Funny, my neighbor got my package, so not only did I get some cool food, I met a new neighbor too!

I can’t wait for my Foodie Penpal, Emily over at Gliz Glam Granola, to open her box. Check out her blog to see what Ohio goodies are now feeling the California sunshine!
