Foodie Penpal – August 2014

It’s foodie pen pal day! I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday weekend. I’ve been hanging out with some friends and taking it easy. Summer is coming to an end and it supposed to be a weekend we spend outside doing outside things. But it’s raining here so we had to come up with other things to do…

Look what Missy made me do! It was a big task but it's done! #artsandcrafts #wreath #yarn #instacraft #crafty
We made wreathes. It was fun but a little time consuming. It turned out pretty good for a first attempt so maybe one day I’ll try to make another one.

Foodie pen pal August 2014

This month my foodie penpal was Savina! And I think she sent a pretty great box! I was excited for all the goodies.  I was pleasantly surprised with the goodies in the box.

I recieved a lot of goodies from a local market called Market District which included some balsamic glaze, a chocolate covered pretzel, cocoa chia granola, peperonata – sweet peppers, onions and garlic.  I also got some vanilla almond butter, a Good Greens yogurt bar and some oatmeal.  I’m excited to eat everything in the box! And it’s all a really healthy mix of things along with a little splurge or two. It’s so great!

The thing I’m most excited for in the box is the peperonata because I’ve never had it before.  I think I might try to work it into one my snacks this week.

You can join in on the fun too and you don’t have to be a blogger to enjoy.  If you’re interested in the foodie penpal program, read all about it on The Lean Green Bean!

What do you think the best thing I got from my foodie penpal?
