Foodie Penpals April 2013

April Foodie ParcelI have recently joined Foodie Penpals.

More information here http://thisisrocksalt.com/foodie-penpals/ this is for the UK & Europe there’s also a link to the US & Canada one too on this page.

A most fantastic idea, sending & receiving food parcels, how cool!

This was my first one received and I was so excited!

Well, lovely Caitlin who sourced and packaged everything for me totally hit the spot. Caitlin’s blog is here http://thepocahontasfiles.blogspot.co.uk/

I loved everything and had lots of new things to try out and share (yes I did try and share some)

The Simon Rimmer Carrot & Coriander Falafel mix was really easy to make and tasted good.


I’ve just been munching these dried banana chunks, heavenly!

Banana bites

The little pots of orange marmalade and rhubarb & strawberry jam were great and definitely not for sharing (all mine!) enjoyed on toast.

The Seasalt & Pepper and the Hot Sand both lovely and from Cornwall so local to my Foodie Penpal. The sea salt & pepper went so well with my poached eggs for lunch!

Paoched eggs

Cheesebites & sesame bar were perfect for afternoon snack cravings.

Included in the parcel was a lovely hand written note from Caitlin.

I can’t wait until next month……………….. ♥
