The notion of a Penpal is a very old fashioned one, but it has been given a new lease of life with this idea from Carol at ThisisRocksalt ( The idea of foodie pen pals us that you sign up, get given two names – someone to send to and someone who will send to you – and you send a parcel while you wait for yours to arrive!


 I received these lovely goodies from Alice. I had lots of nice teabags, some cherry milk chocolate, some healthy crisps and I’m Particularly looking forward to making up the hot chocolate! She also shared some ingredients for making a chicken tagine, so that will be fab next time we have some carnivorous guests over. I’ve just eaten fish and chips but I’m already eyeing up the chocolate…

I loved doing the swap and enjoyed choosing the foods that I sent off to my other pen pal – can’t wait to see her blog all about it! Maybe head over and check it out.

It is with eyes bigger than my belly I say:

It’s only vintage but I like it!
