BBM - Indulge Me
2009 ended with another round of Blogging by Mail organised but the wonderful Stephanie of Dispensing Happiness. My apologies for the late post but my camera had a hissy fit and is only working intermittently. Time for a new one I think.
My package didn't arrive until the New Year which was fine by me because I knew it was on its way. Belated gifts are like IOUs which my mother always told me are good for your soul because they give you hope. I was delighted to find out that my swap partner was none other than Breadchick from The Sour Dough. Our paths have crossed in the blogosphere but this was the first time we'd really connected.
I was thrilled with my box of goodies which contained some items I'd hinted that I would like to receive. So what did I get?
Montreal Chicken Seasoning - I like to use it on hamburger patties on the grill - yeah I know - chicken seasoning on beef - what's up with that? It's also nice on skillet fried potatoes.
Good Seasonings Italian Dressing - we don't have anything like it in NZ. I like it as a salad dressing and also as a marinade for grilled veggies.
Strawberry & kiwi flavoured lip gloss. Just what a girly girl needs.
Pretty pink decorating sugar. I see some frosted cupcakes in my baking future.
A cute little mini whisk - so useful for sauces and dressings.
A fantastic book called The Sharper Your Knife, The Less You Cry. It's about an American woman's experiences at the Cordon Bleu Cooking School in Paris. It was an easy read and made me realise that French Cooking a la Cordon Bleu is definitely not my style.
Any finally a pretty little magnet with images of wildflowers on it.
Thank you dear Breadchick for a very indulgent treat and thank you Stephanie for hosting this great event.
