Foodie Penpals – May 2012

Have ya heard about Foodie Penpals?  It’s pretty simple. Lindsay over at The Lean Green Bean runs it every month. You get sent a name and email address, contact that person for their address and other information (allergies, etc.) and then mail them a food package. The person who sends you a package is a totally different person. It’s fun to see what you’ll get and I have a good time picking out stuff for the other person.

This month the person who got me was Stephanie. She doesn’t have a blog so I can’t link to her but she sent some great stuff! In a very thoughtful way, Stephanie sent a box of food that would take me from the start of a day through the end.

Wanna see what I got?

To start the day, hot cereal with agave nectar and snack mix for a morning snack. I’ve been wanting to try the agave nectar so I was super excited to get it. And just as I thought, it’s yummy! For after lunch, a chocolate mint bar. I’ve never had any of the NutriSystem foods before and this bar was pretty tasty. I’d get it again and freeze it, like Thin Mints! Next, jelly beans for an afternoon snack, and for after dinner, trail mix and a cup of tea. (Should I divulge that I can, and did, eat the whole bag of trail mix in one sitting?)

I’m kinda bummed that neither the person who I sent to and the person who sent to me have blogs, but I hope Christine who I sent to liked her package! I did email Stephanie to let her know how much I appreciated what she sent me.

Until next time . . .
