I feel slightly like I’ve been in a Christmas carb coma for a week or so, thanks to the razzmatazz of the festive season and this is the excuse I’m using for getting a little bit behind with my blog posts. Over the next few days i’ll be playing catchup while casually munching my way through the chocolates and sweets Santa kindly brought me.
Something else Santa delivered co/Zoe at splodzblogz, was my fabulous Moneysupermarket Secret Santa present. For an overview of the scheme see my previous post on the scheme, but as a brief reminder – I was tasked with finding an appropriate present for a fellow blogger and received a brilliant gift from her in return. I was paired up with active, adventurous snacker Zoe and you can read about the foodie Christmas Hamper I sent her here. The hamper was delivered through one of my favourite Leeds shops, Millies, who run a dedicated hamper service
If you find yourself in need of gift ideas next Christmas, or for birthdays, weddings etc, I can thoroughly recommend their service and their hampers, which come packed with really unusual, but vey tasty treats,
As for my surprise, I was thrilled with the gorgeous, colourful tagine Zoe chose for me from kitchenware store Lakeland. She picked up on my love of all things spicy and thought it would make a useful kitchen addition, which I’m pretty sure it will. I haven’t made anything in it yet but I’ve been scouring the cookbooks I received for Christmas for suitable recipe and I’ll be asking Zoe if she has any recommendations too. Here’s a picture of the beaut:
