Blogging by Mail - the Holiday Edition
I have been blogged by mail by Catherine from Tours et Tartines; and what a delightful package I received.
Little pink piggie shaped marzipan candies. Catherine tells me that at this time of year you can find these little almond shapes everywhere – potatoes, fruit and animals
Guylian Belgian seashells. Catherine said not to share these – I won’t!
Belgian Apricot chocolate with the interesting name of “Bikini”. Since there was no warning on the package that if you eat them you will no longer fit into your bikini I have decided that they must be calorie free!
Morrocan Mint and Spice herbal tea – “Long leaves of plants – Real & big ingredients” - gotta love a product with a description like that
Speculaas – typical Belgian cookies in the shape of St Nicholas
Crema di Balsamico – Catherine must know about my current addiction to insalata caprese. I think I may even try it on my strawberries
And last but not least a little something personal - a ball of bath fizzies in my favourite colours; turquoise and lime green.
Hmmmm – I’ve just had a brilliant idea. I could run a nice bath, toss in a bath fizzie and then enjoy a good long soak while sipping mint tea and eating chocolates. Sounds like a grand plan to me.
Thank you Catherine for the beautiful Belgian bounty and thanks again to Stephanie from Dispensing Happiness, the hostess with the mostess, for organising this round of Blogging by Mail.
