Back in December I did Fat Fab Fuel Ornament Exchange, while I was following the rules and learning about my wonderful partner, I discovered The Lean Green Bean's Foodie Pen Pals, and of course I signed up :) The rules are pretty simple: on the 5th of the month, you will receive your penpal pairing via email. You have until the 15th of the month to put your box of goodies in the mail. 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. Sounds fun right?
Well it was! I had a ball - I was paired with Mary; a non blogging, wine drinking, scrabble playing, fresh food lover living in BC. Through our email correspondence I also learned we would get along fabulously if we were not on opposite ends of the country.
Mary sent me a great package filled with delicious goodies :)
Smoked wild sockeye salmon, chipolte powder, wildflower honey, coconut curry lentil soup mix and her hubby Paul's dried okenagen pears.
Paul - those pears were amazing!!
Now this is where I have to apologize - I missed the part of the exchange where I was supposed to post on the last day of the month :( I also missed the deadline for this month's sign up deadline, but I won't miss next month's. THANKS again Mary, it was wonderful having you as my partner, and for the goodies.
I off running the Hypothermic 1/2 when I was supposed to be blogging - if I had my shite together I would have scheduled this post, but I never claimed to have my shite together :)
