Foodie pen pal package arrived

After a bit of misdirection, and much anticipation, my package arrived today. Edith was spot on - Japanese goodies, Indian spices to inspire me, poppadums, chocolate flapjacks for the boys - they had to share with me, and some lovely decaff tea.
Reckon I'll go again next month, this is great!

Organic week finale at Lough Owel Organic Farm

Pig on a spit, cheffy demonstrations, delicious organic beef and pork, all making for an excellent way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

Foodie Pen Pals -connecting through food

Foodie Pen pals is a idea that started in the US only a year ago. It has really taken off, and I'm delighted to be a new member of the UK/Europe part of the program. I signed up for September, I have been assigned a penpal in Greece, so I'm having fun putting together a package with local food and home made and home grown produce. I have been assigned to an Austrian living in Ireland, looking forward to getting my package from her also. Once I get my package, I have to blog about it, so I'm getting a bit warmed up here. It's been a long time since I blogged here. Is anyone still listening?
