Oh I am terrible! 3 days late! I was meant to schedule it, but I’ve been so busy! :S bad me!! 😦
Anyway, this month I was paired with Alex from Trending Recipes 😀 She lives over in Portugal so I was super excited to see what portuguese surprises her parcel had to offer. Her blog is full of tasty recipes and treats too, so before I got the parcel I couldn’t stop reading it (and dribbling over it)!! I sent a parcel this month to Susie from Susie’s Tummy Tales (a fellow bento blogger!!) who lives in Birmingham, but lived in Japan for a little bit :O (jealous).
Firstly, I asked Alex to send me anything that she liked and used in Portuguese dishes as I was intrigued to find out a bit more about the cuisine and foods (me being very un-travelled). She sent these lovely cork matts for hot pans and cookware that I cant wait to use (as I am always getting told off for wanting to put hot pots straight on the side).
Some portuguese pudding mixes, which I think are a bit like blancmange. I was going to make them last weekend, but I didn’t get chance so I’m thinking when the family pop round on Sunday, this will be the pudding 🙂
Sardines, white wine port and piri piri sauce! What more could you ask for 🙂 I am going to use some of these in bentos in the next couple of weeks as I love sardines (and most tinned fish). I’ll be getting my dad to help me decide what to do with the white wine port (nom nom).
And finally jam!! 😀 When I have oats, I love to put jam and peanut butter on top! So this is definitely where this will be used!
Thank you so much Alex! I loved the yummy package you sent me, thank you again and enjoy your weekend everyone!
