Last Friday morning when I checked my mails I was really surprised. There was a mail waiting for me from Sue in San Fransisco, which turned out to be my secret swap partner for this great food package exchange event that Samantha at The Samantha Files has arranged. Sue had FedEX:ed my package just 2 days earlier and when she looked at the status on their homepage, it said “incorrect address” so she asked me to track it down. Of course, no worries! I was really curious about the contents so I immediately phoned FedEX. The strange thing is that the address was totally correct. I think that I spoke with them 3 times, and I finally decided to go get the package myself at their local office as they wouldn’t deliver it until Monday (today). As we were going to IKEA to buy another BILLY bookcase and some other things (after rearranging the furniture we amazingly got some extra space for another part to our existing BILLY combination), we had borrowed Fredrik’s parents car so there were no problems for us picking up the package in the industrial estate which happened to be just on the way to IKEA. When we came home after the shopping, I finally got to open the package! Thank you so much Sue, I love everything. Thanks for the effort and all the lovely contents!
Here are the things that sweet Sue sent me:
Delicious homebaked Toffee cookies. They were really lovely and I’m looking forward for the recipe that Sue will mail me. I will definately bake these!
Great coffee from Peet’s Coffee. We immediately brewed some coffee that we drank to the toffee cookies. Mmmm :-)
Homemade tootsie roll candies. Very nice indeed!
Sue also sent Pear Jam. I havn’t tried it yet, but I’m sure that it will be lovely!
Hibiscus tea. I love Hibiscus tea!
Black Walnuts. Sue writes that this is the only non-California item. They are from Missouri where she was born. Her family sends them to her once a year for her cookies and brownies. The package is gigantic, almost 600 grams! I will use them well!
