Thank you, thank you!

Sorry for my recent absence, everyone. I've been super busy and away from the computer, and I've still been under the weather, still without kitchen lighting, and still cranky. I do have a minute before Sunday dinner for a couple of overdue thank you's.

First, thank you to Vegan View for bestowing me with this award.


I'm always grateful for kind comments about my blog.


And to Bex, my package swap partner, for the amazing array of local Vermont products I received from her.



I have Apple Roasted Shallot Dressing, rock candy, maple candy, Liz Lovely gluten free ginger molasses cookies which are about the best cookie I've ever had, maple cotton candy, Bluebarb Jam, Habanero pepper sauce, a chocolate pb bar, and real maple syrup. Thank you so much, Bex!
We're having breakfast for dinner tonight so we'll be able to have plenty of maple syrup and taste some of the other products too.
Thanks again, ladies, and I hope to visit everyone's blog soon.

Congrats on the award! Maple candy is my husband's favorite :) Nice looking loot!

Bex said...

I've been a bit blog challenged lately too.
I'm so glad you like the package! Careful with that hot sauce. It is seriously the hottest hot sauce I've ever used.

Bex, that hot sauce is so good and way hot! Chase was overzealous with the amount he used on his migas and had to stuff pancakes in his mouth!

Yum! I love maple syrup, that candy looks so good. And so does the "breakfast for dinner" idea, of course, lol. Congrats on your award :-)

Vermont maple syrup! You lucky thing. You are going to have an awesome dinner with that.

The chocolate peanut butter bar and the Liz Lovely cookie look so yummy! Surprise packages are so exciting.

Care packages are the best thing ever! I just received an awesome package from Lindsay at Cooking for a Vegan Lover, and it was all Vermont-based products too! Yum!
