Foodie Pen Pals – Box 2

The lovely Paula from Lancashire sent me a box of goodies this month.

Eccles cakes, I love them, stole one out the packet and gave the rest away to remove the temptation to eat them all.  Sooo fruity and buttery 🙂

Home grown runner beans, looking forward to using them

Mushroom and balsamic dipping oil – looks and smells delish – must find some nice bread for it.

Pumpkin risotto, and cooks in 5 mins too -yay!  Looks healthy but tasty – fancy this.

and Dark Choc Eton Mess – wow sounds amazing.  Love Eton  Mess so looking forward to trying this.

This is a great idea, something new to try each month 🙂
