This month I received my box from:

Charmine. She is a Super Mom. She is a woman on the go who loves to stay active and healthy. She lives in California! Oh what I wouldn’t give for a bit of their sunshine and warmth.

Here’s what she sent me.

001

I love the Annie Chun’s food line, I am a huge fan of their soups and noodles, so I am really excited to try the Seaweed snacks and the ramen noodle packages that Charmine sent. Plus she sent me some fruit leather and I am a huge fan of all fruit leather.

Also included in the box was an assortment of coffee samples, organic nuts from Oregon and some barbecue sauce.  I don’t drink coffee, but I know I can pack these on a trip I have coming up and share with some of my coffee drinking friends.

Now to the Star of the Foodie Pen Pal Box…

Five cans of tuna. I love tuna, I mean I absolutely adore tuna,  and these were packaged from a deep-sea fishing trip Charmine and her family had in San Diego. I am beyond excited to break them open and make a huge pan of homemade tuna noodle casserole. The idea of this being fresh caught tuna that was processed and canned makes this Foodie Pen Pal, ONE Happy Girl.

002

Thank-you so much Charmine, I love me some tuna, and you sure did stock me up. 

I sent March’s Foodie Box to:

Sydney over at Alternative Vegan. I was so excited to send to Sydney. This is the 1st. Vegan I have been paired up, and I have been doing the Pen Pal exchange for over a year. I love her story on becoming a Vegan. I am not Vegan, but I strive to be more conscious everyday with my choices.

It’s Reveal Day, Happy Foodie Pen Pal Day!

FPP post Foodie Penpals

So just a quick note about the Foodie Pen Pal Program. I just want to start by saying that ANYONE can join in the Foodie Pen Pal Program, it is open to readers and bloggers. It’s so much fun, you meet so many great people and get some really tasty food and snacks. For more information about the Foodie Pen Pal Program, please see the end of this post. Okay, now on to the Reveal.

I took a few months off from the Foodie Pen Pal Program over the holidays, I knew I just could not commit to adding one more thing to my to-do list, but as soon as my schedule returned to normal, I knew I had to sign back up. I am so happy to be back, I missed this program, it really is so much fun and I love meeting other bloggers and readers. So this month I received my box from Meg at Meg Vs Chub. I love her tag line: Screw You Chub, Get Outta My Way. 

Check out this box of goodies from Maine, major SCORE. Where to start…Well first off she made me the cutest card with my name on the front, and on the back it says:

“Foodie Pen Pals January 2013″     

012

Now to the goodies: Herbal Pop Corn and some Imported Italian Pasta, I cannot wait to try the pasta with a homemade pasta sauce recipe I have been working on. I also see the popcorn going down with a Netflix Movie, a warm blanket, and a beer on a Saturday night.

013

Some local Maine Crystallized Ginger, Dried Kiwi and Bay Leaves.

015

and, this little jar of love. Pure Maple Syrup. I am planning a special french toast breakfast for this. I think it will be amazing warmed up and drizzled over some baked berry french toast on a cold Sunday morning. I plan on searching the internet for the perfect recipe. I love it when a food item inspires a great meal, plans and something to look forward to. Meg sure did supply me with a clear vision of what to do with my goodies.

016

Now back to this little container. Dried Kiwi. How cool is that? Well they were as delicious as they look. I love dried fruit, it always makes a great snack, and I had never tried dried Kiwi so I was happy that it was in my box for me to try. My husband also enjoyed them.

018

Thank-you Meg for a great box of goodies and inspiring some future meals. Between the pasta and the maple syrup and all the snacking YOU sure did make the January box a highlight to my New Year. Much appreciated Meg.

I sent a box over to Darlynn at The Little Blog Dress. Picking out items to send to a Foodie Pen Pal is just as much fun as receiving a box. Head over to her blog to see what was in her box!

June Foodie Pen Pal Revel Day is here and I received my package just time. My Foodie Pen Pal Lindsey did not have an opportunity to mail out the package by the scheduled date, due to her busy schedule. The package went out this week and I just received it Thursday. So glad I got it in time to do my post. I understand things happen and people’s schedules get busy and sometimes overwhelming. No worries here, foodie box in hand = happy foodie girl. So here’s what was in my box.

  • Turkey Perky Jerky
  • Snider Farms Jalapeno Peanuts
  • Tazo Tea Bags

I am pleased that I received my package. Thank-you Lindsey for sending me some fun foodie items. I am looking forward to trying the Turkey Perky Jerky. I love me some jerky. Me and my husband make our own Venison Jerky. This jerky packs 9 grams of protein in each serving. That’s awesome, tasty and healthy.

I am also a fan of spicy treats so I plan on digging into the Jalapeno Peanuts right away! Spicy……..

I am a big tea drinker so these Tazo tea bags will be perfect for my purse.

This month I sent a box to Martha from MLLrungirl. She is a runner with 2 small boys and I really enjoyed reading about all the races she has done and her upcoming races. Hope you go over to her site and check her out.
