If you're a regular reader of my blog you know that for the past few months I've been participating in this truly unique program for food bloggers and readers called 'foodie penpals'. Click on the highlighted link to read all about this fun way to interact with other like minded people and perhaps taste some regional foods from other parts of the country that you just don't have access to where you live. Expand your food world! You don't have to participate every single month (I'm taking July and August off) but you do have to be responsible to your penpal and the posting deadline...always the last day of the month. It's easy and a fun way to break through the internet barrier and become just a little more personal. A new twist on an old fashioned idea but that's exactly what we need now.
My pen pal this month is a young woman from Washington, D.C. who teaches math! She's a health and fitness fan so it was fun to see what kind of interesting things would arrive in my package! Here is a picture of the 'cornucopia' of healthy snacks that arrived last week. I was so happy that I had the perfect basket to display everything in.
She supplied me with so many different healthy snack options but realistically...my sons and their friends will make quick work of emptying that basket out. Except for the banana muffin mix! They still haven't figured out things like bread, brownies and other yummy baked goods are created. They think we have a 'magic oven'...don't get me started about the dryer and laundry!
Kristin added a lovely note with her package which is another part of this unique program - something must be personal and handwritten. It's a great way to get behind the blog! Speaking of blogs, please take a look at hers! It's such a great way to get to know a person and her blog offers a very special insight into the teaching profession and just how dedicated some of our very best educators are!
