Foodie Pen Pals

I’m cheating a little bit for this month’s Foodie Pen Pal reveal day as I haven’t actually taken part this month! I’m currently away with work for three weeks and knew I wouldn't have the time to put together a decent parcel for my chosen recipient (or have the time to fully appreciate anything I was sent) so regrettably I had to bow out for a month.

Last month however my parcel hadn’t arrived prior to reveal day. This was due to a number of unfortunate events that had effected the pen pal who was sending a parcel my way.  But although slightly belated I thought I should share what Marian sent me as it was a great little parcel.

There were;

Free from chocolate chip cookies (that were gluten and dairy free) – these soon got snaffled up by my colleagues and were really rather tasty.

Chocolate rice cakes – I’ve tried a number of savoury varieties of rice cakes before but not the sweeter versions and the chocolately kick on these is certainly kills a chocolate craving.

Choco decs and sugar balls – these will definitely be used in some baking soon (well once I get home from my work trip and am back in my own kitchen).

And then three little jars;

Lemon Curd – I love anything lemony and lemon curd is one of my favourites!

Onion Marmalade – again something I adore

Whisky marmalade – I’m not such a big fan of whisky but my housemate certainly is so she is likely to be helping me out with this one.

So thanks again Marian for the lovely parcel, it was worth the wait!
