My August foodie penpal box never showed up. 😦 I’m not sure why, since I haven’t received an email response querying the status.
I got matched with Ilka from Puerto Rico and although PR is a US territory and it costs the same to mail to PR as to any other part of the USA, I wonder if that’s the reason.
When Lindsay matched us, we exchanged a couple of emails where we gave contact info and talked about what we liked but since then, I haven’t heard anything. I know this sort of thing happens sometimes so I am still hoping that I’ll hear from her soon and that maybe tomorrow I’ll get a a box in the mail.
But in the meantime I’ll tell you about what I sent her.
She said she loved foreign foods and spicy foods. I’m Jamaican so immediately I thought that Jamaican jerk chicken would fit both categories but I couldn’t send the ingredients as I couldn’t send the liquid jerk sauce through the post and I couldn’t find the dry rub.
This is what I eventually sent her:
I hope to hear from my foodie penpal soon and when I get my box from her, I’ll post another reveal.
And of course, I will sign up again. I love penpals and one mishap is not enough to deter me.
