May Foodie Pen Pal- BBQ

 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  Lori.  I was immediately drawn to the chips, opened them, tasted them and hid them.  Spicy - sweet BBQ chips "VOODOO" kettle style chips from  New Orleans. My husband dived into the spicy pickles from Famous Dave's, and the kids went for the blow-pops,  which I hid also!  Lori also included a spice rub, BBQ sauce and a jar of local salsa.  The box was filled with everything I can use for great summer dining.  I have used the rub and the sauce to make Chicken Kabobs, Ribs, and Grilled BBQ Chicken Breasts.  I also included the sauce in  my BBQ Chicken Salad recipe.
Here is a photo of the box I received....

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.
