Exotic parcels of delight – Foodie Penpals

You thought I was referring to Santa didn’t you? It’s a bit early doors isn’t it – have you already been sipping at the Eggnog and Mulled Wine already? My postie has been a little lackadaisical again, so I decided to double the deliciousness and bring you two, yes two, months of tasty European treats that have winged their way to my doorstep.

tasty treats. The dried Peach halves are scrumptious, Lime white chocolate was a revelation and I could barely wait to brew a cup of that delicious smelling
fruit tea. Julia’s beautifully written recieps inspired us to try fresh tabbouleh for dinner which was a
delicious change, and that lip balm was beautiful, and perfect in the wintery cold we’ve had lately.

… and a very festive pack of marshmallows. Suffice to say they didn’t last very long with our piping hot cups of hot chocolate. Melty goodness.
