Foodie Pen Pals – delivered a lovely surprise!

I don’t normally like surprises but my ‘foodie pen pals parcel’ is definitely the exception. I recently signed up via the blog ‘thisisrocksalt.com’, and when my very first parcel arrived this month I was over the moon.

IMG_1703.JPGDawn my pen pal this month sent me a lovely card outlining what she had sent which included:

Barenaked Gluten Free noodles – which were featured on Dragons Den and only have 8 calories per 100g serving.

Green and Black’s chocolate bar – when, like Dawn said, anything other than chocolate just won’t do!

Graze Popping Corn – a gluten free treat ready in 40 seconds.

Itsu – pack of three chocolate covered rice cakes, yummy!

Mini caramel syrup – this made a great addition to my camomile tea.

Thespicery – jamaicanmethirsty – a cute little pack of spices to make a refreshing Caribbean cocktail.

Thespicery – ‘Brown Down’ chicken a world kitchen recipe kit. This was my absolute favourite item and my families too. It has a shopping list on the back and an easy to follow recipe inside.

This gorgeous array of food + the delicious spices = a chicken and mash dinner with a difference.

The sweet, spicy chicken, sweet potato mash and herby salsa made a great combination.

IMG_1801-1.JPGI also enjoyed buying the contents of the parcel that I sent to my pen pal Nikki and I hope she enjoys the goodies (Mallorcan almonds covered in gold leaf, Tabasco and popcorn flavoured jelly beans from Selfridges, Carob for baking, dried physalis berries and gluten free stars) as much as I enjoyed choosing them.
