This is the cutest card ever!
The breakables were gently nestled in a sea of paper, and were completely intact! AWESOME. Lemon Curd - I could write sonnets about the pure wonder that is Lemon Curd. Oh, my - I could not have asked for a better gift! I have seen it in the store, I have made it at home, and still - I have never bought a little jar of heaven for myself. This was such a treat! I haven't busted open the berry preserves, yet - but I know it will be equally marvelous. I need to make some bread!
The Lemon Curd inspired me to make one of my favorite breakfasts...IMMEDIATELY! Dutch Baby pancakes are the perfect vehicle for anything lemon, so I spread curd on it, sprinkled a little powdered sugar, and just rolled my eyes back in my head and sighed.
One of the other things I love about the foodie packages is the tiny treats - tastes of things I've never had before. I am wishing I lived near a Trader Joe's because I can tell I would be a regular customer! We are using the Everyday Seasoning...well, every day, on everything! It comes with it's own little built in grinder - adorable! Can't go wrong with Sesame oil, or almond butter either. I haven't tried the honey-almond butter before, and it's a big hit!
Let me just say, the Chocolate Dipped Coconut Luna bar won me over. It's like a Mounds Bar with much less guilt! Oh - I have already purchased more of them for my pre-run snacks! The Cherrie Pie Larabar was also a new snack for me - and I liked it a lot! I have a sweet tooth, so finding things that fill my pie-hole without packing on fat and calories, make me happy!
Speaking of making me happy...this chocolate, salted caramel bar was like crack! Oh my - it was just delicious! Even the hubs got to share (then, when it was gone, I immediately regretted sharing!) and he loved it too.
Okay - so the seaweed wraps are very much outside the box for me - so I will be experimenting with them, and looking for recipes. I really do appreciate being sent products that I would not have thought of to try. I hope Bridget has some recipes on her blogsite - I need to know what to do with them, and I'm bound and determined to figure it out!
So THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU - BRIDGET! This was an awesome package!
