This month’s foodie penpal exchange was just as awesome as last month’s, the first time I participated. Lindsay at The Lean Green Bean has started a fanastic program for food bloggers and readers in both Canada and the US. There is a link on her site for UK food bloggers too 🙂 If this sounds like fun, consider signing up at: http://www.theleangreenbean.com/foodie-penpals/
I sent a package full of goodies to Ontario, and in turn received a package full of goodies from elsewhere in Ontario. The lovely sweetspellbaking was responsible for making my day last week when my package came. I love the foodie reviews of Toronto eating spots, and gorgeous photo-recipe teaching guides to deelish-looking treats! I wish my bread looked that good when I baked. Please shimmy on over there and take a look!
So here’s what I received:
-chickpea curry that’s completely ready to go and gourmet blended brown rice to go with it. These are two of my favourite foods, so I’m sure I’ll be incorporating them into a bento this week 🙂
-mushroom and quinoa soup. I can’t seem to get enough quinoa lately, so I can’t wait to try this soup out. It says it serves five, but it hasn’t met me yet!
-snack bars full of all sorts of tasty treats. I love trail mix, so to get to eat it in bar form will be wonderful.
It’s like my foodie penpal was able to poke around in my head – a hit all around! What I appreciate most are the adorable handwritten notes attached to the treats. They’re mine all mine, so I won’t photograph and post them.
I’ve signed up again for next month, and am looking forward to shopping and sending goodies off around the country again. The whole program just makes me happy 🙂
