Better late than never!

22 Jul

Guess what y’all!? I got my foodie pen pal box! I don’t know if the post office wanted to chow down on my goodies or if my apt complex just felt like holding it hostage…but I got it!

20130722-115748.jpgMy penpal was Jessi who writes some nutrition articles over at aroundtheplate.    Jessi is from the wonderful state of Michigan.  No bias there…

006Okay, maybe a lot of bias.  I was so happy to look in the box and see that the items she included were all from Michigan.  She even gave me a Michigan cookie cutter, so exciting!

Also in the box was: blueberry salsa, a rootbeer cookie mix(which I had to hide so some people didn’t decide to eat it raw), honey, Leelanau coffee, and some tea that was from an upstate spot.  I’m so excited to try all of my goodies!  Did I mention I was excited?

You guys should totally check out Aroundtheplate as well.  It’s got some pretty cool info on healthy living, recipes, and nutrition.

If you are interested in participating in the Foodie Penpal experience check out The Lean Green Bean for more information.

And just to end things on a rockin’ note:
