July Foodie PenPal was Lindsay from Live. Love. Nutrition. and did she know me well!
I love all these nut butters. See how I already ate a little of each one. I do that, all the time. Variation is not a good idea for me.
Local-ish granola, Ola! Granola from Connecticut.
I made The Lean Green Bean's Chocolate Dipped Frozen Yogurt Bites with the granola and Chobani peach. Note: Chobani freezes better than Fage.
I've never had this peanut butter.
And of course, a note, on notebook paper. I do that all the time too!
And guess who Lindsay just met who I didn't see but came to the Fair: Robert Irvine! What a coincidence!
If you're interested in Foodie PenPals...
-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 Penpals 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
If you’re interested in participating for August, please CLICK HERE to fill out the participation form and read the terms and conditions.
You must submit your information by August 4th as pairings will be
emailed on August 5th! You will receive a confirmation email from me
within 24 hours if you sign up. IF YOU DON’T GET ONE, send me an email!
Have you ever watched "Restaurant Impossible?" I haven't because I don't have cable. I've only ever seen shows with Gordon Ramsay.
