Today is the day to share what we received from our February Foodie Pen Pal. If you don’t know about this fun swap, this is how it goes: Your are given the name of a blogger to sent food/kitchen-related items to. A different blogger is given your name to send to you. The spending limit $15. Postage usually runs me around $11.00 This is all hosted by Lindsey at The Lean Green Bean. She has swaps for both the US and Canada. If it sounds as if it would be fun, you can head on over here to get all the details. Applications for the March exchange close on March 4th. The swap is month-to-month so you can "sit out" any month that you want to.
This month the blogger who sent to me was Jessica from Fit Talker (and Eater). She sent me such a great package that the only thing I could say when I opened it was WOW. In her note Jessica said she always tries to send packages that she would like to receive. Well, believe me, I was happy to receive this one.
Aren’t these just the cutest measuring spoon? Jessica says one can never have too many, and I agree. They go so nicely with my favorite silicone spatulas. I have put up a special hook in my kitchen to hold these as they just make me smile when I look at them.
One fun thing about this exchange is receiving brands of goodies that are different from what you can buy locally. This usually results in me going to the internet to see if they are available by mail. This must be great for internet business.
My package went to The Crazy Cooking Couple who blog in the Washington DC area. You can visit them to see what I sent.
