Foodie Pen Pals

25 Aug

I know things have been quiet around these parts.  I could make a bunch of excuses, but instead I’ll just say that I really do intend to start posting more.  In fact, one thing I can promise is that there is a new feature that is going to FORCE me to post at least once a month!! Way to set the bar high, I know.

If you haven’t heard about it, Lindsay from The Lean Green Bean hosts this great program on her blog for Foodie Pen Pals.  Each month you are assigned to a person who lives somewhere else in the country, and you send them a care package of dry goods that are local to your area, whether they are things you made or bought.  For example, you could make some cookies, buy a jar of your favorite locally produced jam, and send some locally grown coffee beans, or something like that.  It’s a fun program and I participated for the first time this month.  Since my blog has a hefty focus on local produce, I thought this would fit nicely!

On August 31st I will reveal what I got in my first package.  It was so exciting to get a package in the mail full of carefully selected goodies from a total stranger!

In the mean time, I also have some great new recipes to share so watch this space.
