October Foodie Pen Pal

This month my Foodie Pen Pal was Alison and she put together a delightful package of spices and seasonings from Penzeys Spices . As you can see, she included some deliciously savory seasonings and one of my favorites, cinnamon! 
I haven’t used all of them yet, since I have some open cumin and chipotle, but I’m sure they are great! I can say that the Sandwich Sprinkle is fabulous! I have used it a few times on all different things, not just sandwiches. It is super tasty mixed in ground turkey meat for a quick turkey burger. It adds flavor to anything you can think of, in no time. 
How adorable are these postcards? 
I can’t wait to bake some treats for friends far away and include these sweet notes. 
I loved that Alison included the catalog, what a great idea! It is filled with lots of temping spices and seasonings. I look forward to ordering from Penzys! Thanks, Alison for introducing me to them!

And now it’s time for some details about Foodie Penpals.  In case you’re a new reader, here’s a reminder of what the program is all about:
-On the 5th of every month, you will receive your penpal pairing via email. It will be your responsibility to contact your penpal and get their mailing address and any other information you might need like allergies or dietary restrictions.
-You will have until the 15th of the month to put your box of goodies in the mail. On the last day of the month, you will post about the goodies you received from your penpal! 
-The boxes are to be filled with fun foodie things, local food items or even homemade treats! The spending limit is $15. The box must also include something written. This can be anything from a note explaining what’s in the box, to a fun recipe…use your imagination!
-You are responsible for figuring out the best way to ship your items depending on their size and how fragile they are. (Don’t forget about flat rate boxes!)
-Foodie Penpals is open to blog readers as well as bloggers. If you’re a reader and you get paired with a blogger, you are to write a short guest post for your penpal to post on their blog about what you received. If two readers are paired together, neither needs to worry about writing a post for that month. 
-Foodie Penplas is open to US & Canadian residents.  Please note, Canadian Residents will be paired with other Canadians only. We’ve determined things might get too slow and backed up if we’re trying to send foods through customs across the border from US to Canada and vice versa. 
If you’re interested in participating for November, please CLICK HERE to fill out the participation form and read the terms and conditions. 
You must submit your information by November 4th as pairings will be emailed on November 5th!

*If you’re from somewhere besides the US, Canada or Europe and want to participate, send me an email and I’ll see if we get enough interest this month!
