Anyway here's what I got:
- Italian lemon biscuits
- REAL italian mozzarella
- Italian pasta
- Italian garlic
- homemade lemon macaroons
- homemade banana bread
How lucky I am! The mozzarella was incredible and I had it with really ripe tomatoes, basil and a drizzle of olive oil, delicious! Another highlight was the lemon macaroons which Sand has said she will send me the recipe for as they were incredible. The banana bread was also good!
Can't wait to have the pasta and think I'm going to use the lemon biscuits as a base for a lemon cheesecake or something. Thanks so much Sand!

This month I got my foodie penpal from Kim. The parcel came wrapped in licorice allsorts wrapping paper; very cute. I got some tandoori rub, some caramel and salted nuts (these were amazing!), some garlic ale (haven't tried this yet and a mint hot chocolate set complete with mini marshmallows! She also wrapped up some teapig tea bags like a snowball! Fantastic, thanks Kim!
