My lovely Foodie Penpal for May

on May 31, 2012

Another month and another wonderful Foodie Penpals package.  Oh how I love getting home to a lovingly prepared box of foodie treats, and this month I was absolutely blown away by my goodies!

Kathryn over London Bakes was bang on with my likes and dislikes.  She catered to my love of all things tea and spice, with a little bit of something nice thrown in as well.  If you are reading my blog and are unsure as to what Foodie Pen Pals is all about head over to Captain Carol Anne’s This is Rock Salt blog for all the info.

Now to my stash, check it out..!!

As you can see Kathryn went all out, sweet and savory treats.  I couldn’t decide what to try first!

There was a delicious bar of Dark Chocolate with Cocoa Nibs, some divine Porcini mushrooms which are destined for a risotto soon, some Teapigs Popcorn Tea which I have fallen in love with and some bakey cake toppers and iced decorations…. the pressure is on now to connect with my inner baker and get creative!

As well as the more recognisable packets there were also two little tubs which grabbed my attention.

Appealing to my love of all things spice Kathryn had sent me two small pots, one of Pepper Steak Rub and another of Naga Jolokia, the world hottest dried chilli…. I’m taking the warning on the label very seriously!

In addition to my lovely foodie gifts, there was also a small packet of Garlic Chive seeds.  Kathryn was sent a pack of seeds in a previous Foodie Pen Pals package and liked the thought so much she send some on to me.  I have to say that I may also carry on this tradition.

So as I write this I’ve shouted to the hubby to put the jug on.  Time for  Popcorn Tea and some Guanaja Grue 70% dark choc..happiness is made of this… thank you again Kathryn for a wonderful parcel!

    I’m so glad you liked it all!! I’m really intrigued as to what the naga jolokia is like, I’m not sure I’d be brave enough to try it! It was so fun putting a box together for you 🙂

  2. Popcorn tea?! What does it taste like? Do you have it black, or with milk? I’m intrigued…

  3. What a great parcel – I really want to try that tea! Can’t wait to hear how the chili powder is too. DON’T TOUCH YOUR EYES!
