I immediately tore it open, and the first thing I found has completely stolen my heart:
I really want to eat the whole bag, but I think I am going to try to save some for Dan. I don't know what broad beans are, but they are tasty, and so is the crunchy stuff on the outside of them. They look like they are supposed to taste like cheese, but they really taste like spicy amazing. It's probably a good thing that these are not sold in the states, (or even on Amazon, apparently. Yes, I just checked!) because I would eat them all the time.
Next in this wonderful package:
I LOVE tea towels. I love them even more when they are unique and cute. This is both. This is my best towel in the world. That might not make sense to you, but it makes sense to me.
YES!! For some reason vanilla beans are really hard to find at the stores around my house. This makes me soooo excited to make that ridiculously decadent 9-yolk ice cream recipe that I have been dreaming about since I first made it almost two years ago. It's been that long since I have had a vanilla bean in my possession.
The last thing is this curiosity:
After a little bit of poking around on Wikipedia, I see that L&P is a lemon soda made in in New Zealand. And the fizzy part? That's pop rocks. This white chocolate bar is huge. I am trying to imagine what this will taste like and making an all-star attempt at self control so that I can try it out with Dan.
Oh yeah- and some Halloween towels. I forgot to get a picture of them because I already have them draped on the oven handle. Just imagine my oven being festive :)
My mom is the best!
