I am so excited! I am participating for the first time in a fun new program called Foodie Penpals! Lindsay over at The Lean Green Bean started the program back in September with around 30 participants as a way for foodies all over the country to connect and try new things. This month the program has grown to 600 participants in the US and Canada - not counting the new branch in the UK. How cool is that?!
Here's the short version of how it works (sort of):
- On the 5th of the month you find out who you're matched with. - You have 72 hours to get in touch with them and figure out any food preferences. - You go shopping with 15 bucks and try to find all the cool stuff you can! - Before the 15th you mail your package. - You wait in anxious anticipation by the mail box until your package arrives. - You open your box and jump up and down with joy and excitement! - You resist temptation and take pictures of everything you got before devouring the wonderfulness. - On the 30th of the month you do a post on your blog about all the awesome stuff you got! - Then you start watching your Inbox for the next e-mail from Lindsay telling you who your new foodie penpal is!
