In a pretty box came a lovely selections of goodies that were right up my street. I also liked the card that Lucy chose, very cute!
This is what I saw when I took a first look at the contents.
My box contained contained a chickpea curry mix for one from the Simon Rimmer range. I did not even know that he had developed these vegetarian meals in a bag, but I do own one of his cook books and enjoy the recipes, so I have high hopes for this. I will save it for lunch on a day when I am working from home, I think.
Lucy also picked some healthy-ish snacks (yay!), namely popcorn grown in Norfolk, some fruity licorice, a Norwegian cola lolly and Tyrrell's fried broad beans, which I hadn't seen before. They were quite nice to munch on.
The postcard suggested that this pretty package would contain homemade Belgian biscuits, and revealed these butter almond thins. As the postman timed his delivery perfectly, these were shared with Marco right there and then, together with an iced coffee for Kaffee & Kuchen.
I liked everything I have tried from this parcel and am looking forward to sampling the remainder. Thank you to Lucy for putting it all together for me!
