Sangria dappled sunlight, incredibly organic architecture and steaming roadside cauldrons of Paella greeted me from my doorstep this month. All in one compact parcel wrapped in packing tape. Not bad, eh?
Every single month I wrestle with the thought of poking through my favourite foodie shop for another batch of goodies into the post for my Foodie Penpals. Every single month I am then overwelmed by the wonderful consideration my penpal – in this case the lovely Katie – takes to prepare a scrumptious packages of goodies for me in return. Every month I then write a post remembering just how much I adore Foodie Penpals.
This month was no exception. I always ask my penpals to send me a taste of home, and in this case it was a delectable selection from Katie’s second home Espana. Full of spice, sizzling flavour, exotic recipes and very few particles of Gluten, my parcel was transformed into a scrumptious weekday meal that transported us back to our last visit to Barcelona – Paella, food of the gods.
Oh, and crowned with my absolute favouritest (is that a word?) flavour recipe ever!!
Not all of the ingredients quite made into the dish, but enjoyed in al fresco bite size chunks by my husband shaped mouse. Absolutely delicious – thank you again Katie it was the best slice of late summer sunshine I could have wished for from the Postie (though I’m a little worried that my packages might start being delivered with nibble marks – that’s how good it smelt!)
