So, this is the first month that I've taken part in foodie penpals, which I explain in more depth in the next post. I sent a package to Pia, who lives in Germany and who was also taking part for the first time. She doesn't currently have her own blog so, this time round, she's guesting on mine. Here's what Pia thought of foodie penpals this month.
Hi, I am Pia and this is my first package while joining foodiepenpals.
This month it is from Emma and it was awesome.
Funny: when I opened the parcel, I was wearing my favourite vans and Emma put all of her food in a vans shoebox, what a coincidence!
She baked delicious lavender short bread for me, which tasted wonderful and smelled divine.
Because I love italian and indian food, she put porcini mushrooms and a indian dessert for me in the box. I will try both in the near future, especially the mushrooms, because I like them very much.
She sent me some lovely English breakfast tea with tea bag tweezers, which I never tried before and it tasted delicious. My husband loved it ;)
The last two items were English mustard (spicy and yummy) and some local food: Lancashire Eccles Cakes, which until then I didn't know.
Highlight, besides the food, was the lovely written card with a picture of a famous tudor building, which is near her home.
I have sent a package to Beth and you can read (and see) what was inside on her blog: http://bethcreedon.co.uk/2012/05/22/giving-and-receiving/ !
Enjoying foodiepenpals so much, it is like birthday and christmas in one and I am looking forward to my next foodiepenpal, so I have an excuse to go shopping!!!
