Last month, for the first time, I participated in a fun blog party called Foodie Pen Pals. This amazingly fun event is hosted by Lindsay at the Lean Green Bean. She manages over 600 entrants every month, hooking them up for a super fun foodie experience. Can you imagine???
This month I had the pleasure of meeting two foodie pen pals. One person sent me an incredible package (I can’t wait to tell you about it) One person I had the pleasure of shopping for and sending a package to them. It was so much fun.
So about mid-month I received this GORGEOUS and FUN package from Veronica at Foodie By Night.
Veronica is from Boston and her package was filled with items from her neck of the woods. Since I am from Seattle, this was really fun for me. Let me share with you the goodies that she sent.
Let me start with my favorite: Lemon Polenta Cookies. I have never had lemon polenta cookies before but I almost dropped dead with delight after I tried them. They were light, lemony and polenta-y. So delicious. She bought them at a local Boston Bakery which I wish I could go to. So I looked them up on-line and called them to see if they would ship these cookies to me. Sadly, they would not. Veronica sent me some granola from that same bakery and it was as wonderful. The bakery is simply called FLOUR and they have three locations in Boston. It is worth the trip! (Apparently their Quiche is out of this world too.)
But that is not all! My box was FILLED with delightful foodie treats. She sent Old Bay Seafood spice mix to sprinkle on my fish and favorite sweet potato fries. One special treat was a small chocolate mousse mouse. I had to totally duke it out with my daughter for that little mouse. I didn’t even share. It was wonderful.
Then, she sent a local Boston magazine. I don’t know how she knew that my favorite down time activity is to sit on the couch with a cup of green tea and read magazines. Veronica is amazing, and so is her site, you simply must visit. Her blog is aptly called Foodie By Night.
Having a Foodie Pen Pal was a complete blast and I can’t wait to participate again next month. The great thing about this social event is that you don’t have to have a blog to take part. ANYONE can be a Foodie Pen Pal. So hop on over the The Lean Green Bean and sign up for May. You will be so glad you became a Foodie Pen Pal!
