Foodie Penpals

This month I participated in The Lean Green Been Foodie Penpals.  It is so much fun.  On the 5th of each month Lindsay from The Lean Green Bean sends out an email with all of the information about the penpals.  By the 15th of the month we have to send out our package of goodies.  On the 31st everyone who blogs posts about it.

I sent my box of treats to Allison.  It was so much fun finding things to put in the box.

Here is the email I got from Allison:

Hi Galen! 

I recieved my box yesterday. Thank you sooo much!! Its wonderful!!! I can not wait to break into the granola haha. I love that you sent all vegan products too. Ive always been a little "afraid" of vegan products, taste wise, but they are fabulous! So thank you for also opening my food horizons haha. Hope all is well with you. 

All the Best, 

The treats I sent to Allsion

This message put a huge smile on my face.  I'm so glad Allison is enjoying her box.

Janie of Busybee and the beard  sent my package of goodies.  She has been so sweet and didn't seemed at all phased by the idea of vegan goodies.  There seems to be a problem and she is looking into it as my box hasn't arrived yet, even thought it was sent out long ago.  She told me she posted something about the package on her blog.  I promised not to look at it but I am including a link here in case you want to see what is heading my way. My surprise box of goodies  Luckily I saw a picture that says "I'm a foodie Pen Pal" so that's the post I'm linking.  I promise I haven't looked at it Janie.   .

This has been fantastic and so much fun. I'm looking forward to September's penpal swap.

Have a great weekend everyone!


  1. Those treats you sent look lovely! I've never had maple almond butter but it sounds like an amazing combination :)
    I hope your own package arrives soon!

  2. That looks like so much fun!!! I love sending/receiving packages! I might have to participate at some point.
