I have been waiting anxiously to post my first Foodie Penpals reveal. I am still excited by the idea and overwhelmed by my package from Nadine. I received my package on Saturday 19th May via the Post Office. (Sadly I will never be in to collect my delivery during the week which is annoying!)
Foodie Penpals is fantastic! How is it that someone I have only been communicating with for…3 weeks, can already know me so well!?! I mean we haven’t even met! This is starting to sound like a romance story, but I really do think I have ‘met’ my foodie twin!
Okay I know this is my first time and yes I’m a Foodie Pen Pal virgin…blah…blah…blah…but Nadine has really made my day! Ahh! [Smiles]
Everything was so carefully chosen and suited me, Nadine clearly listened and knows how to buy a great gifts. Thanks again Nadine @DeenieLou!
Pink Glitter Sugar I put this back at the till at Tesco’s the day before as I couldn’t justify buying it over dinner for that night. Little did I know that my foodie penpal Nadine had already put one in my package.
I love butterflies so naturally I practically squealed when I saw the butterfly plunger cutter. I am looking forward to using them soon.
Quickly Nadine and I realised that we had a mutual appreciation for sweet treats. So she kindly offered to bake me something ‘unusual’ as per my request. The unusual treats were these Chai Tea, Oat and Date cookies.
The warm & spicy Indian chai teabags told me that Nadine had used some of them in my cookies, but I didn’t mind what form they came in.
The cake decorating book was especially thoughtful as I am working on improving my icing skills. I love to bake cakes and the decorating part is great but definitely an area which needs refining. So now I can buy some patience and work my way through the techniques.
Last but not least, the Mallow Love Hearts were so soft and delicious.
They say you never forget your first and I surely won’t forget the excitement I felt when I received all the contents of my first Foodie Pen Pal package.
I’m still pondering as to whether it is better to give than to receive, as I really enjoyed buying the foodie gifts for my foodie penpal Verity @Dicksnensian. I was just as ecstatic when I got her email of gratitude. Perhaps I will have to do it all over again next month and see.
