January Foodie Penpals: reveal day!

Happy January 31st, friends!  You know what that means...it's foodie penpal reveal day!  Foodie penpals is a program that was started by Lindsay over at The Lean Green Bean!  If you haven't yet, check her out!!

This month, I was sent a package from Chris & Amy over at A Couple in the Kitchen!  Their blog is full {& I do mean FULL} of delicious looking recipes!  When you have a minute, stop over & check them out!

On to the goods!!  They sent me a fabulous package!

Bread...um, probably one of my biggest weaknesses.  Seriously, it's one of my favorite things to eat.  Unfortunately, I've been so busy lately that I haven't had time to make the bread yet.  But, this weekend, I'm making a big pot of Chili & will be making this bread to go along side my Chili!  I have a feeling I'll be consuming more bread than Chili :)

To go with the bread, they sent 4 freakin' amazing oils from O'Live a Little.  I checked their website out and pretty much want to try everything!  

The oils included:

Cinnamon Balsamic Vinegar
Raspberry Balsamic Vinegar
Tunisian Organic EVOO
Rosemary Infused Olive Oil

I tried the Vinegar's yet, but if they're half as good as the EVOO & Rosemary Infused Olive Oil, then I'll be a happy lady!  I wll say, that the vinegar's smell amazing!  I'm looking forward to trying them!

Thanks again to Chris & Amy for their awesome package!  

Jealous and want to join??  Here's how:

What is the program 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 & get their mailing address & any other information you might need such as allergy 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; the possibilities are endless!

- You are responsible for figuring out the best way to ship your items depending on their size & 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 & 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 the month.

- Foodie Penpals is open to US & Canadian residents.  Please note, Canadian residents will be paired with other Canadian residents ONLY.  We've determined things might get too slow & backed up if we're trying to send foods through customs across the border from the US to Canada & vice versa. 

If you are interested in participating for FEBRUARY, please CLICK HERE to fill out the participation form & to read the terms & conditions.

You must submit your information by February 4th as pairings will be emailed on February 5th.
