It’s that time of the month once again… no i’m not talking about my period!
I’m talking about the Foodie Pen Pal’s grand reveal day!! Yeah! <fireworks. boom . boom. boom >
So what’s foodie pen pals you may ask? It’ s this awesome idea started by Lindsay of The Lean Green Bean where at beginning of the month you’d be paired with a food blogger or lover and send and receive a box, parcel, package or what have you of amazing treats and yummy goodies. Then you get to bottle up all your excitement and wait till the end of the month when you can reveal what you’ve received. Exciting isn’t it?
But Lyna it’s not the end of the month?! Well not all roses are red and the mail system is not without its delays! We had a little trouble with our mail and did not get our package in time. But all is well and we got our package in one piece! Yeah! As they say it’s better late than…to forever wait?! (I totally made that up)
Let’s get to it. So last month we were paired with the nicest and the sweetest girl (Uru) who literally has an equally nice and sweet blog gobakeyourself. This girl can really bake, armed with serious baking skills she comes up with the meanest recipes that involve loads and loads of chocolates she’s not called Choc Chip Uru for nothing. But I must warn you though, visiting her site will make you gain a couple of virtual pounds and eventually WILL MAKE YOU FAT! Lol
So having said that, let’s see what she got for us.
Uru sent us quite a package, we had a little of everything from sweet, salty, spicy/chilli, savoury and chocolate-y just as we wanted!
Upon opening the box, first thing we tried were the lamington fingers, these were fluffy sponge cakes covered in chocolate and then dipped in coconut shavings! I know… yummy!
She also sent us these mini samosas, which were these little triangular tasty bombs. Eating it was literally an explosion of Indian spices in your mouth, they’re packed with so much flavour with an
hint aftermath of heat! Burn! Since we love spices…she also sent us the mother of all spices…Curry Powder!
And to cap all that savory goodness who could resist a bar of Cadbury Fruit & Nut chocolate…
Thank you so much Uru for these yummy treats!
