September Foodie Pen Pal

Several months ago I joined the foodie pen pals. It is an interesting program where you are assigned a new pal each month and you send them $15 worth of food and in return you also receive a package (from a different pal). It is fun. Check it out at

This month, I received a great package from Meg at Eat, Drink and Be Sperry

The box from Meg was great. She included a packet of sticky notes with a variety of designs (all sporting the first letter of my first name), a package of Creme Brule kettle corn (YUM!), a packet of microwave popcorn and a bag of pancake mix that was stone ground utilizing a water wheel driven grindstone. How cool is that!

This was a very thoughtful package and thanks again to Meg. Check out the Foodie Pen Pal program at

    This is an amazing “exchange and share” idea….

    an interesting idea, it would be better if they sent you food that was indigenous to where they are from.

      Maybe her theme was “things that start with the letter P” 😉
