this post is a little overdue! many pictures so it could take a while to load.
i was in a food package swap organised by Lindsay, and was partnered up with Mipa.
Here's what she send me:
the whole lot together.
2 lovely cards made by Mipa. they have been put aside till I pick up some frames. they are to nice to mail :)
She has a seperate site for her art here I love her style, the monkeys on the front page are awesome.
I haven't opened these (its the very last thing to be opened!) so I'm not to sure what it is. the package does say its a natural olive oil snack.
Brown rice tea! its a little like drinking rice crackers very tasty!
Citron tea this was awesome. I have people on a mission to buy me some from a korean shop in sussex. its a bit like marmelade when you open it you pour the lot into a mug add hot water and sip away. It was so lovely and warming and I can't wait to have more.
I think this is seaweed with salt and sesame. very strong flavours great with rice.
I am assuming this is like sushi sheets. I haven't opened these yet because you need sticky rice. I live in such a culturally diverse part of the countryu (please not the sarcasm!) that I can get 3 types of rice here brown, white or risotto. I am hoping to have a trip into london to see friends in the not to distant future and will hopefully hit some shops there otherwise it will be the internet.
Different types of rice crackers. these are delish! very sticky!
savoury vegetable crackers
the first thing we opened rice cracker. I have never seen Valen the grey (our rabbit) go as mad as he did for these. sure he loves raisins and craisins but he went mad for these. nipping the kids in the toes when he realised they where having more and he wasn't.
Ramen noodles! very spice and very tasty much nicer than the ones we get here!
Valen the grey running like mad to get a bit of rice cracker (this is his carpet the rest of our floor doesn't look this bad!) not sure why he went as mad as he did for these!
Thanks a lot Mipa for swapping parcels with me I had a great time putting stuff together for you and a great time getting to know a bunch of new foods! And thanks to Lindsay too for organising!
