Today was the day I was to post all about the goodies I received from my Foodie Pen Pal. Since it is not 8:46 pm and I have yet to do so, I guess I am officially behind. I am so sorry Debbie I am late. You know how much I loved your gifts! Please forgive the lateness. Thank you to The Lean Green Bean, Lindsey, for this great idea! Love it so much and can't wait until next month to do it all again!
Here is the box I received, I was so excited I started taking pictures right away! First glance, I see an abundance of goodies in the box!
Here is a screen shot of everything in the box. You can see everything here that was in my package.
Thank you so much Debbie for an amazing Foodie Pen Pal Package! What a great experience I had.
Seriously, I see something that looks like guacamole mix here....I have a new friend for life in Debbie! she rocked this foodie pen pal month! She sent something I didn't even know existed. I packet of liquid guacamole mix you just add 2 avocados to. Let me just tell you...OMG, this is my new favorite item!!!
The crunchy chocolaty chip cookies were a huge hit in my household. There is not even a crumb left behind...
The most unique item in my box were these little gems. Creamsicle almonds!!! DELISH!
I recently stumbled upon a wonderful website/blogger at http://www.theleangreenbean.com/ aka Lindsay :D I found this awesome Foodie Pen Pal Club she created and I signed up! I can't wait to see what my first pen pal sends me. I am super excited to send my box and hear back from who I am supposed to send to! I have so many ideas and am ready to go! Looking forward to this experience and more to come! Remember the "old" days when people actually took the time to sit down, write a letter and mail it? Lindsay has found a way of bringing that back and including us foodies in her quest for inspiration among others, for cultures to be shared, for friends and friendships to be formed. Beyond the name and title "foodie" I think this is a great way to take a step back from the fast paced lifestyle we all live (guilty!), and put time and effort into the real things that matter in life. Forming lasting friendships, learning from others, and making someone smile! Lindsay, you are amazing!
On the last day of this month (5/31/12), we will be revealing what our Foodie Pen Pal has sent us. 5/15/12 I sent my foodie pen pal their box today! They will be so excited when they get it!!
