I joined Foodie PenPals because it's a fantastic idea and it marries two of my favorite things: food and writing. Sort of writing. There is a requirement that you write something in the package of goodies you send to your penpal!
I just heard from the gal who is assigned to me and I wanted to share her email. If Foodie PenPals is a way to make connections in the blogosphere, it's working. I now know something about her and she knows several things about me, too. The internet can be a faceless, impersonal place. This is a great way to bridge those gaps.
Do you have any dietary restrictions, allergies, or food preferences?
I cannot eat fava beans or oysters. Weird, I know.
Are there any foods you really like or dislike?
Nope. I eat everything...except for the aforementioned fava bean and oyster duo. But I am more of a savory gal than a sweet one.
Do you have a favorite color or scent?
Favorite colors = red, purple, pink, and green (I'm easy there)
Favorite scents = mint, coffee
Are you a breakfast person, or more of a lunch/dinner person?
Lunch and dinner
Favorite go-to snack item?
Anything salty (pretzels, chips) or just fresh fruit
If you were going to only be allowed to eat three foods for the rest of your life, what would they be and why?
cheese: because there are so many different kinds and all have a great story and flavor
fruits: because there is always something in season
vegetables: because, like fruits, they are indicative of the time of year and I love them
… and just for fun
If you could have any one superpower, what would it be and why?
I would love to be able to survive on less sleep. There is so much to do in a day...it would be nice to have a few extra hours to do it in!
I can't wait to see what she comes up with from the answers to these questions. And I am well on my way to creating a fun foodie package for my penpal in Florida.
