I know that I am very late with this – the holidays with family and friend visits took precedence over blogging for a while, so my sincere apologies to Tandy whose fun initiative this was and to my Secret Santa Colleen, aka BrownieGirl.
What a bounty I received in my package that arrived just before Christmas. I was very spoilt and received the most wonderful package filled with:-
- 2 Ina Paarman Recipe Books – Summer Food and What’s for Supper – I will share a few recipe just as soon as I can get back to “normal”;
- A NoMU African Rub spice which I forgot to use the other evening when grilling chops – will have to mend the error of my ways ASAP;
- A Le Creuset spatula which is guaranteed to be used week in and week out in the kitchen;
- Cape Herb & Spice Cumin seed which I will add to a curry soon;
- A beautiful heart shaped rose printed ornament which has taken up residence in my office; and
- A Charlotte Rhys soap bar with the the softest light fragrance which I look forward to using.
Thank you again to Tandy for the fun and a great big thank you to Colleen for my super awesome pressie. 🙂 xo

Absolutely Caroline, there was a lot of love put into this gift. Have a lovely day. 🙂
Such a great package to receive! I don’t care how old I’ve become, receiving a package during the holidays is still a real delight. 🙂
The element of surprise and excitement takes me right back to when I was a little girl. Have a great day John. 🙂
what is the African Rub like?
It sounds interesting…. Xx
I must confess Kim to not having used it yet, but the tub says: ‘Capture the warm and vibrant flavours of Mother Africa with this wild blend of cumin, fenugreek, coriander, allspice, ajowan and cardamom.’ So loads of wonderful flavours in there! Have a great day. 🙂 xo
Wow what a beautiful gift 🙂
I was really spoilt Tes. Have a super day. 🙂
A Le Creuset spatula is on my shopping list. I heard it’s really wonderful. Have you started to use it yet? What a lovely gift!
Le Creuset are really awesome! Wish I could afford more of their products though. The spatula is great – works a treat!. Have a super day. 🙂
Some wonderful items and a lovely surprise! Have a great day! x
Thanks Yvette. Have a super day too. 🙂
I am loving the sound of the african rub spice!
I was even thinking of using it in a curry Belle – why not hey. Have a super day. 🙂
Lucky you! Love the spatula (didn’t know le creuset made spatulas!) and the cumin seeds… lovely. Enjoy Mandy 🙂
The spatula is super awesome – and if memory serves, there are 3 different sizes, a spatula spoon, basting brush and jar scraper too! Have a great day Kelly. 🙂

Hi Colleen, thank you again. You really spoilt me! I think of you each time I use any of my pressies. 🙂 And now I hear there was a card too – THANK YOU! Have a beautiful evening. 🙂
