I’ve been a bit lazy on the foodie penpal front, I signed back up for Septembers box and in true Gourmand style some of the contents were eaten by members of the household before I had a chance to take pictures. Octobers box ended in a similar tale but I guess it just goes to show how amazing the other participants are at picking good food!
Novembers box had been held by Royal Mail for 10 days for some reason before making it’s way to my door meaning I only received it this week. When I opened the box I was on my own so I managed to snap a picture of the contents, I’m glad I did because as soon as Mr Gourmand spotted it packets were opened and contents gobbled up in true gourmand style.
My sender for this month was Anne from Random Things Through My Letterbox who not only sent a delicious array of items she had also included a printed list of items with a little explanation.
I received Ginger Biscuits from Grantham, Lincolnshire which pleased me as we are all huge fans of ginger in both sweet and savoury dishes. Mango Chutney from Scunthorpe again another family favourite, Cheese from Osgodby which is apparently similar to Edam one of Mr Gourmand’s favourites. Chilli bites were the next item which were the first thing Mr Gourmand put his hand on, they have already been devoured and were absolutely delicious. I’ve been instructed to purchase some more immediately! I found them very spicy but in a good way, they were a moreish sort of snack and we couldn’t help but keep dipping our hand in the packet for more. The next two products were sweet treats, Extra Special dark chocolate which I love to cook with and Reindeer noses which I opened last night to get in the Christmas spirit.
The next foodie penpal share is January so hopefully I will get my bum in gear and share within the deadline instead of late!
