September Foodie Penpal

This is my third month that I've participated in a Foodie Penpal program from The Lean Green Bean and the last day of the each month is always 'reveal day' where we share what we received and sent. What a fabulous idea it is... sharing your favorite goodies with other people across the nation! The package I shipped out went to Florida to YouMeFit, so be sure and check out what they had to say about what we sent, and browse her fantastic blog!

Now, for my package, which came from a non-blogger, Teri, and turns out I got a Texan again! Yeah! Our package this month had a great tropical blend trail mix with fruits and nuts. Since I'm supposed to actual have snacks, this is a great thing to have accessible. It's delicious too! The other thing I got sent was not just a food find, but one to serve lots of things in from here on out. Clever to give this dip holder in a penpal program like this, because I get to enjoy it over and over, not just one time! Thanks Teri!

Now for the fine print and details about Foodie Penpals... ALL the details can be found on their website, though.
* On the 5th of every month, you receive your penpal via email. You contact your penpal to get their mailing address and any other information you might need to determine what to send.
* You have until the 15th of the month to get your goodies in the mail. On the last day of the month (reveal day), you will post about the goodies you received from your penpal.
* Boxes should be filled with fun foodie things like local food items, homemade treats, and favorites. The spending limit is $15 and must also include something written like a note or recipe. Shipping appropriately is up to you, of course.
