Today is the big reveal and this was my first time participating in this event. The concept is simple, you submit your name to The Lean Green Bean blog page and you are then matched up with a penpal. If you live in Canada you will be matched with a fellow Canuck! My foodie penpal was Ashley from Brantford Ontario.

This is my box the day it arrived, I was like a kid at Xmas waiting for it!


These goodies were inside



All that goodness from one little old box!

My kiddies were super excited about the lemonade mix and the Camino bars. I had to hide the dried cherries from them. Ashley was kind enough to send me some of her fav teas as well, I love tea and can’t wait to enjoy a cuppa on a cold night!

I was also sent a really sweet card and pen from her , I will use this as my lucky signing pen for all my Real Estate deals! *luck*

I am actually making the potato Gnocchi she sent for tonight’s meal as I am carbo loading for an upcoming half marathon, this is perfect timing!

Thank you again Ashley, I loved everything in my foodie box and look forward to January’s pen pal drawing!
