June Foodie Pen Pal
This was my second month doing Foodie Pen Pals and I had such a fun time picking out again this month that I was looking forward to seeing what my foodie pen pal Kristi sent me. You can see above that she sent a bunch of good stuff (I'm always amazed how much you can get for $15!). She sent: Polenta, Potato pancakes, Cheese Bread Mix, Hot Pepper Parmesan Dip Mix, and Homemade Salsa.
I have to admit I was most excited for the Homemade Salsa. I love me some Mexican food! I'm not really a fan of bread, but my husband is looking forward to trying the Cheese Bread. Since I hardly ever have bread in the house it will be a treat for him. I've never made potato pancakes or polenta, so that that will be a new adventure. And lastly, I'm a sucker for dips, so that Hot Pepper Parmesan dip mix won't last long!
PS - If you want to see what I bought for Dawn, you can check out her blog HERE
Here are the details if you are interested in joining next month!
-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 Penplas 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.
If you’re interested in participating for July, please CLICK HERE to fill out the participation form and read the terms and conditions.
You must submit your information by July 4th as pairings will be emailed on July 5th!
