Foodie Pen Pal
This month I participated in something new. Foodie PenPals. Lindsay from The Lean Green Bean is the coordinator.
I recieved this wonderful box of goodies from Lyn of Life Lyn Style.
1/2 Cup raw oats
1 chopped apple (or other fruit)
1 C milk
1/4 C raisens
Heavy dash of cinnamon
1/4 C granola
Mix everything except the granola and let it sit while she gets her husbands lunch and kids breakfast. Add graola just before eating.
To see the box that I sent, you can check out Lauren at Fooood4theheart.
Would you like to participate in Foodie PenPals? Here are some basics, but click on over to Lindsays blog for specifics and details.
You send a box to someone, and someone else sends one to you. I have been pondering this for several months, I was so afraid of sending something someone wouldnt like, etc....... BUT, in February, I decided to take the plunge. SO MUCH FUN!!
On the 5th of the month you receive an email that tells you who you send your package to. It also includes their email so you can talk to them and find out if they have any allergies, or dislikes.
There are over 350 participants from all over the World. (IF youre in the US you only send to US, in Cananda only to Canada)
Then you go shopping, $15. maximum!! You can also send some of your own baked goods. Send your package to your pal by the 15th of the month, and on the 30th, you write a blog post to reveal your goodies.
