Someone in Texas loves me 🙂
My dear friend, Heather, sent me a little care package filled with all sorts of yummy things that remind her of me. Actually, she had a CD she needed to mail to me, so she thought she’d include some goodies…except that she forgot to put the CD in there! That is so Heather 🙂
It was a pineapple/mango-themed box with a few other goodies. Can you believe she sent a two-liter of soda?? In a box. From Texas. Apparently it’s big down there. Well, everything is big down there.
I’ve already tried the “Just Mango” bits in a cup of tea. Neat!
Lemon Bars…ahh, this is a joke between Heather and myself that WILL. NEVER. GO. AWAY. In a nutshell: in a rare moment of imperfection (ha!), I had to throw away a WHOLE BATCH of from-scratch lemon bars I’d made for her and my joint going-away party. I just had to re-do them! I thought I’d figured out what I’d done wrong, but after peeking in the oven at the second attempt, found that the same tragedy was about to occur! Heather and I quickly grabbed the sheet pan and hurriedly started fixing the still-hot shortbread crust with our bare hands! The memory should sting, but it doesn’t, and I grew up on these Krusteaz-brand goodies (my mom was a fan). So yes, I’ll give the box a try next time.
The note says, “My princess, you are purrfect.” All I can think about when I see the cover of this card is Antonio Banderas’s voice as Puss in Boots from Shrek, saying that phrase in a sultry way to the white cat. I love it.
Aww, she doesn’t want me to get sick! I agree, the Emergen-C powder drink packets are awesome. They come in all sorts of flavors now, but I used to have the orange and raspberry stashed away.
Yes, Heather does know me well. I LOVE off-the-wall grains for cooking. Hello amaranth and teff flours!
Boy, does she know me well! What could be better than mango jam? PINEAPPLE and mango jam! I cannot wait to try this stuff…
Thank you, Heather, for all my goodies! Give my love to Margaret and Silas–we miss all three of you so much!
