Surprise for Spring!

So far, 2015 has been a horrible year! Rather than moan and wail about our misfortune, I waited until there was something good to write about…and here it is.

Our food parcel arrived today! We were looking into several options during the frigid days of February. Unfortunately, many of these food parcel companies do not ship to Canada. Boo! We finally found one in Vancouver called “The Missing Ingredient”. They focus on Canadian businesses, and high quality ingredients.

As you can see, there is a real mix of food supplies. We have a jar of pasta sauce, a jar of herbs, black lentils, liquid smoke, a package of seasoning and a bar of organic chocolate. Guess which one we opened first. 🙂

YUM!

There were also four cards that arrived in the box.

There were two recipes including some of the ingredients, information about one of the food producers, and a cooking hint for the liquid smoke.

Becky and I were so excited at receiving the parcel, loved the surprise products, and are looking forward to cooking with most of them. (The chocolate won’t last)

This was our idea to cheer ourselves up during the coldest February on record. We just missed the February shipping date and had to wait a month, but it was worth it. We are well pleased. I think it will continue to warm us through a rather chilly March.

Bon appetit!

      The chocolate is gone! Lol

      Thank you for your lovely offer of help. It’s mostly things that others can’t help with, unfortunately. I have given my notice at work and will be home again full-time. I think this will alleviate most of the issues.

      I’ll be checking in to see how things are with you. Hoping everything is well and moving forward. Xx

  2. HI Becky, I am glad something nice happened. It has indeed been a long time since you posted! Ah, and thanks for following my blog!
