Long overdue, starting back in September, I signed up to be a part of the Austin-Boston Food Blogger Swap again. I did this last year and had a great time, so I jumped on the chance to participate again. Quick refresher: food bloggers from Austin and Boston are paired up and send each other food items from their respective home cities. The plan this time was to send our packages out by October 15th to put some sort of “end” date (since we know nothing gets done without deadlines).
After a few back-and-forth emails, we agreed to push things into November. I spent time slowly gathering items here and there, ultimately compiling what you see below.
Some Kerbey Lane pancake mix, Salt Lick BBQ Sauce, Round Rock Honey, a mini Tito’s vodka sample, a Bearded Brothers energy bar, Habanero Pralines (she mentioned she likes spicy), and a Trailer Food Diaries Cookbook. Not a bad assortment, all for under $30! I got it in the mail about a week before our Thanksgiving trip and she replied 2 days later she’d be getting it in the mail soon.
Fast forward to today. Since that last email, I sent a few “just checking in” type emails but haven’t heard anything. No package either. I contacted the organizers on both the Austin and Boston sides, and no one has reached her either. Well, I hope she enjoyed the box of Texas fun.
