I absolutely love snail mail! I know that email is a much quicker way to send someone a note but I just think there is something so personal about a handwritten note. So when I saw a post about Foodie Penpals on one of my favorite blogs (seriously people…you NEED to check out this blog!) I immediately signed up! Each month I get assigned a foodie penpal who will be sending me a box of food goodies and I send them a box filled with some of my favorite treats…how amazing does that sound?!?
For November my penpal was Janet from Maine (since I live in Huntington Beach, CA, can you get two penpals further apart within the 48 states?!?) and it felt like Christmas came early when I came home to this package…
Filled with all kinds of fun goodies…
– Bar Harbor Clam Chowder…this will be perfect in the winter!
– Justin’s Almond Butter…this is one of my favorite “on-the-go” snacks and I’m excited to try the Maple flavor
– Ployes Buckwheat Flour…and after googling ployes I found a site filled with recipes that I can’t wait to try!
We’re taking December off from the Penpals due to the holidays, but I am already looking forward to “meeting” my January Penpal!
