April Foodie Pen Pal

 The Lean Green Bean
I participated in my second Foodie Pen Pal exchange.  Check out information regarding the program below.

This month I received a nicely made box from  Stephanie who lives in Kansas City, MO. For every item in the box, she put a cute sticky note explaining  why she sent that itemI loved that!  The box contained items I would really use and a nice bag of good chocolate that we opened right away!  There were healthier items to snack on and and a  few products to help with dinner or lunchStephanie also sent  along a post card of Kansas City  with some Kansas City style BBQ sauce.  I have used the sauce several times and even created a salad based on Kansas City which is nicknamed, "The Paris of the  Pains".  I would love to visit there sometime soon.  Thanks Stephanie.  I really enjoyed your thoughtful gift.

Here’s a detailed explanation of the Foodie Penpals program:
-On the 5th of the 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 treatsThe spending limit is $15The 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 can choose 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.
