Contain lots of very pretty things ;). This was my parcel from the Good Enough to Eat swap - from my partner Mel from At home with MelMel.
Oh yes MrPostie has been - I was dressed & decent for once - mind you it was about 11.30am!!
dig a little deeper & unpack it all;
Lots of pretty parcels - can you spy 2 CK paper bags? - the temptation to rip into it all was very high but as a blogger I know the importance of taking pics and savouring each parcel for the benefit of my readers ;)
First there was;
A big hanging strawberry - Mel had hinted at this on her blog - very pretty I shall be finding it a home later.
Some CK tissues, a cute little pack of wipes (perfect for days out) and pretty heart shaped soap.
A CK bowl - which will end up being used for storing bits & pieces.
Cute buttons - definitely good enough to eat.
There were a couple of other items in my parcel - which made the original group pic but didn't get their own pic as my batteries are dead (again)!!
An apple print oven glove and 5 bars of chocolate (need to hide them from my boys).
Thank you Mel - for my parcel of loveliness and for being my swap partner :)
Her pictures are so much better than mine - but here's what I sent as one big picture;
Going back a couple of my posts, I mentioned that I had a spare CK catalogue - that is now winging its way to Sarah @ Red Gingham - it does seem that CK hasn't quite made its way that far around the world so I though Sarah deserved a treat. Kandi I shall message you later as I know that there was one other person who wanted a catalogue too.
I also promised a recipe for the Banana bread I made - here's my version;
225g self raising flour
75g caster sugar
3 banana mashed roughly
2 eggs lightly beaten
2 tbsp honey
Grease a 900g/2lb loaf tin & line the bottom with baking parchment/greaseproof
Rub butter into flour with fingers until mixture resembles breadcrumbs
Stir sugar, bananas, beaten, eggs & honey. Mix till it forms a dropping consistency.
Spoon into loaf tin.
Bake for approx 1 hour @ 160c / 325f or Gas Mark 3 - check with a skewer to see if its cooked.
Leave to cool & then turn out to finish cooling.
Hide from children as they'll devour it very quickly ;)
Right its Wednesday again - need to sort my stuff for S&B tonight - hurrah my mate Country Girl is coming - seems ages since we've had a good natter.
See you soon
