So in this crazy post-parent-teacher interview-prepping for the Foodbuzz Festival this weekend (and my appearance in the Bertolli Sauces Kitchen!)-gearing up to write reports week, it was with great excitement that I received not one but TWO parcels in the post. I LOVE getting mail, especially parcels, and especially ones containing FOOD!
First up, from my mum:
Now I know there are probably a bunch of Tim Tam purists out there (my personal fave is the double coat one) pooh-poohing the imposter biscuit. Well now there are so many varieties of Tim Tams available that you probably only remember when there was just the original flavour available if you are over 30… (err.. that would unfortunately be me!).
Anyway, one year, they produced mini white Tim Tams for Christmas and mum sent some over to Neil and I and we loved them!!! She has since been on the hunt for them and apparently found some more. My mum, by the way, is a champion of the discontinued candies and biscuit flavours – she phoned Darrell Lea when they changed the recipe for the liquorice allsorts we so love and recently was on the phone to Cadbury asking why they don’t make strawberry Freddos in share packs in New South Wales. Gotta love my mum!
(ummm, yes one packet of these is umm…. gone. lucky they don’t make them here!!!)
Next up, a special package from Arizona:
Yup – HOT STUFF!!! I am part of a foodie exchange group where a few food bloggers exchange products from around the world. So much fun!!! Interested? You should join up here. This lovely selection of products was courtesy of Louise of Felice in the Kitchen (check out her blog). Neil’s looking forward to checking out the sauce and chili pepper powder (how DID that make it through customs???) and I am excited to use the taco sauce. Thanks Louise!!!
1 more sleeeeeeeeep until San Franciscooooooooooooooo!
