As mentioned in my post earlier, my Foodie Pen Pal recipient this month is not a blogger so I asked her to write a little something about her experience that I could share with you. After receiving my package earlier this month, she sent me the sweetest email. Here’s an excerpt:
“Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I was so excited to receive my goodie box yesterday. I had a terrible day at work and got home an hour and a half later than usual. When i walked in the door my husband had the box waiting on the kitchen table for me. It really made my day:) I think he was just as excited to see what was inside.”
Like I said, getting the package is at least as fun as what’s inside. Here’s Sarah:
“I was very excited to be participating in Foodie Pen Pals for the first time. My pen pal was Susan from Wilmington, North Carolina. I live in Illinios and couldn’t wait to see what kind of goodies I would get. Susan was very personable and nice to talk to from the start. I really enjoyed her blog as well. I explained to her that I had started eating vegan this year for health and weight-loss reasons. She did a great job keeping my dietary restrictions in mind.
My goodie box included Pineapple Pepper Jelly, 8th Wonder All Purpose Spice Blend, and Campobasso Trading Company Black Tie Seasoning. The spices are made locally in Wilmington. My husband and I immediately sampled the jelly because we had never had anything like it. It had a great flavor with just a little spice. I plan to use the seasonings for grilled or roasted veggies for me and my husband will use some on local organic meat. Susan also included some great tips on how to use each of my new ingredients.
This was a great experience and I plan to continue doing Foodie Pen Pals.
Thanks again Susan! Sarah K.”
