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).
I didn’t mention it earlier, but late last month I signed up to participate in an Austin to Boston Food Swap. An Austin food blogger and Boston food blogger are paired up and send each other some hometown favorites. I was lucky enough to be paired up with Janis Tester. I mean, I write about food, but she’s a legit food blogger. Just look at her site and tell me she isn’t awesome! Although she may deny it, she’s something of a local celebrity . We were limited to $30 and should capture the spirit of our city in food (and cater to the preferences of the recipient).
