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?




At Fitbloggin I found out about this cool thing called a Foodie penpal.  It’s like a penpal but instead of letters you send someone food.  I was matched up with Terra this month and it was both our first times doing the program.  We talked about our dietary restrictions and then we were left to fend for ourselves. The main rule is to spend no more than $15, have you box in the mail by the 15th of the month and include something written with your box. This is what I got in my box: Fruit leather Peanut Butter Veggie…
