I remember having pen pals in grade school, and it would always be so exciting when a letter came in the mail! With the whole email, texting, whatsapping, etc. I forgot how much fun it is to get unexpected things in regular old snail mail. Enter foodie pen pals (http://www.theleangreenbean.com/foodie-penpals/), which is exactly what it promises to be. Pen pals who love food, sending each other a random assortment of goodies with a note. My March foodie pen pal was Kaycee from www.MyCraftyZoo.com.
Kaycee sent me a fun assortment of international foods:
- Guava paste- how could she have known I love this stuff! Cheese and crackers are calling….
- Black beans- today was actually nice enough to put me in a veggie burger mood!
- Rice noodles- I’ve been playing around with a cold noodle salad. It’s so close, so watch for the post!
- Banana chips- I took this picture when I got the box, these are now gone…
- Teas- also gone =)
If you’re interested in doing this, please check out the Foodie Pen Pals page and sign up. I can’t wait to see what April will bring! =)
