March Foodie Pen Pals

 foodiepal stamp2 March Foodie Penpals Reveal

Getting goodies in the mail each month has become my "new normal".  I love going to the mailbox and searching for tasty treats!  This month I received a healthy variety of foodie items from Talia at  Her site is inspiring me to eat a little healthier & with headlines like  "Lychee: A Curious Fruit to Love"  how can you not be a fan of Talia!

                       Thank you for the treats Talia

These chocolaty cookies are so darn good that I hunted them down at Fred Meyer in the Natural Food department

Wild Rice, excellent tasting when cooked in chicken stock.
I enjoy honey drizzled on a toasted peanut butter and banana sandwich.

I love the texture & crunch of this home grown granola...made here in Whatcom County!

And now it's time for some details about Foodie Penpals.  In case you’re a new reader, here’s a reminder of what the program is all about:
-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. So, I'm going to keep two separate lists and match US w/ US and Canada w/ Canada!
If you’re interested in participating for April, please CLICK HERE to fill out the participation form and read the terms and conditions. 
You must submit your information by April 4th as pairings will be emailed on April 5th.
