This month, my foodiepenpal was Monique who blogs at I Are The Food Snob, and her package came to me all the way from New York!
This was a very interesting package with a lot of new to me food!
I received a bag of bulgar wheat, which is a healthy whole grain that cooks up a lot like couscous, a container of coconut oil, that I’ve heard so much about but never been brave enough to buy for myself, homemade blueberry ketchup plus the recipe, and some New York bodega candies that my husband stole for himself!
Wait a minute. Did I say Blueberry Ketchup!? Yep. This beautiful jar of home made effort was certainly my most interesting foodiepenpals item ever!
Let me first say that I appreciate the effort, and the concept! I love blueberries! And I love ketchup! But unfortunately this combination just confused the heck out of my taste buds! I think, for me, it was the vinegar that made me dislike it. I’m sorry Monique! I tried! Thank you so much Monique for being my foodiepenpal this month!
I love foodiepenpals because you never know what you’ll get from a stranger across the country. And seriously? Who doesn’t love getting mail!?
This month I sent my package to the sweetest momma in Alabama who’s training for a marathon and kicking butt along the way! Her blog is so fun and motivating. Check out miss Mindy Bobe and the goodies I sent her on her blog Road Runner Girl !
Big thanks to Lindsay, The Lean Green Bean, for making foodiepenpals happen! She blogs at theleangreenbean.com where you can read more about this awesome program and sign up to participate too!
