Hi friends - it's the last day of the month...so we all know what that means...it's time to reveal what I received in my mailbox this past month!
This month for the first time ever since I joined Foodie Penpals I received my box from a fellow blogger - Hayley from Haley Runs and Eats. She's got lots of great recipes on her site - so make sure you check her out!
The box was full of yummy local goodies!...so let's recap
- Birch Butter that is locally made (to Hayley)
- Wild Rose Honey (the roses are edible) again locally made
- Homemade granola (that made the entire box smell sooo good)
- DavidsTea mango fruit punch drink
Hands down our family fav was Hayley's homemade granola...it is soooo yummy - and I love that she included a list of all the ingredients (so perhaps one day we could try and make it ourselves). I also really enjoyed the fact that she included local to her items to try - as that's always a nice treat!
Thanks again Hayley!!!!! and thanks as always to Lindsay over at The Lean Green Bean for hosting.

In case you’re a new reader, here’s a reminder of what the program is all about:
On the 5th of every month, you will receive your penpal pairing via email. It will be your responsibility to contact your penpal and get their mailing address and any other information you might need like allergies or dietary restrictions.
You will have until the 15th of the month to put your box of goodies in the mail. On the last day of the month, you will post about the goodies you received from your penpal!
The boxes are to be filled with fun foodie things, local food items or even homemade treats! The spending limit is $15. The box must also include something written. This can be anything from a note explaining what’s in the box, to a fun recipe…use your imagination!
You are responsible for figuring out the best way to ship your items depending on their size and how fragile they are. (Don’t forget about flat rate boxes!)
Foodie Penpals is open to blog readers as well as bloggers.
Foodie Penplas is open to US, Canadian & European residents. Please note, Canadian Residents will be paired with other Canadians only. Same with Europeans.
