August 2012 foodie penpals reveal
This month I received a parcel from Nic Dempsey and sent a parcel to Paula. I was delighted to receive my parcel as I knew she enjoyed parties having spoken to her after her weekend-long Birthday celebrations. So was very excited to find a pouch of peach bellini mix, which just required the addition of Prosecco! One bottle later and a pleasant pre dinner cocktail was enjoyed by Tony and I on a rare child free night!!
Nic had included a jar of homemade gooseberry jam which was delicious on my breakfast crumpet the following morning and unbeknown to Nic as my gooseberries have been decimated by gooseberry sawfly this year, I managed to get a jar of one of my favourite jams and I'm not sharing!!
Nic also included a few snacks like rice crackers, strawberry soft liquorice (Tony loved this), some fruit tea - ginger and mandarin (very zingy) and to keep me busy with my 3year old son, 2 packets of seeds, the cress is currently sprouting on the windowsill and we will save the sunflowers till spring but looking forward to using them.
There was also a yummy looking card from Nic explaining why she had selected everything, in all a fun and still thoughtful mix of goodies. Thanks. xx
