July Foodie Pen Pal Reveal

The Lean Green Bean
I joined an online group called Foodie Pen Pals. You will see the link above and in the sidebar. Each month you get a name and send that person a food package worth $15. This was my first month to be a part of this. I signed up and I fell, sidelining me from just about everything. When I first got my Foodie Pen Pal's name I emailed her and explained my "situation." She was very understanding and said that any time I can get my package to her would be fine. Packages are supposed to be mailed by the 15th of the month. I missed the deadline by about a week. Sigh...

I received my package from Debbie of the Accidently Delish blog. She is from Arizona, somewhere I have never been. In my intro letter to her I mentioned my love of carbs. What a great food gift. Cookies, and pasta (vegetable pasta), bagel chips (yum!) and chow mein noodles. The bagel chips perfected my adding a crunchy layer to my lunch salads. The Rotini will be used in a soon to be made pasta salad. And I think I may try the Chow Mein Noodles with chicken. Stay tuned for that dinner. Thank you Debbie! And thank you for being so understanding about my foot situation!

Your package was worth the wait! I loved everything (only crumbs are left from the cookies!) I hope you enjoyed everything and your ankle is healing well!
