This month I sent some local Lincolnshire goodies to Hayley who lives in Irvine in Scotland. Hayley doesn't have a blog, but I think that she enjoyed her treats.
My parcel came from Anna. I'm not really sure where Anna lives, all I know is that she is somewhere in the UK. It's always very exciting when the parcel arrives - opening it up with absolutely no idea what delights will be inside. Anna really did me proud, she sent me a really lovely selection.
The Spice Tailor Spinach Curry Mix - I'd told Anna that I like spicy food, but not too hot. This mix is really mild and Anna says it's really yummy too. I'm looking forward to trying this one out - I'll do it with chicken I think.
Forest Feast Blueberries - because I'd said that I love fruit, Anna thought that these were a little different. They are, they are really really gorgeous. The perfect snack, I think I may be addicted already!
Crespo Dry Black Olives - these were to satisfy my love of Greek things! I've not actually tried these yet as I'm currently making my way through an over-large box of fresh olives and marinated garlic that I got from the Continental Market in Marshall's Yard last week, but I do like the dried olives and will be indulging just as soon as my fresh olives are finished.
Vegetable Kettle Chips - these are so so lovely and very moreish - a huge bag but I didn't stop eating until they were all gone. A selection of parsnip, sweet potato and beetroot - perfect, just perfect!
Oh and then there were boiled sweets! My guilty pleasure - I know I shouldn't, my dentist will probably curl up in a ball and cry, but I just love boiled sweets. I always have a bag of sweeties in the car. Anna sent two whole jars full. Fizzy Lemons and (my all time favourites) Pear Drops. Old fashioned wonderfulness!
All in all, a great parcel from Anna - she did very well.
I love being part of Foodie Penpals - it's like Christmas every month. If you'd like to find out a bit more, or maybe take part yourself, check out the joining instructions over at the Rock Salt blog.
