My friend and fellow blogger, Inga, has sent me a package full of goodies from Australia! When I made that hot chili oil recently, she asked if I’d send her some, surely not thinking I’d take her seriously. HA! I’ll see your chili oil, and raise you a jar of peach preserves! It took about two weeks for it to get there. I wonder if she has any taste buds left or if they’ve all been fried off.
Then, in exchange, Inga sent me a package full of Aussie goodies. FAR more stuff than I sent her. Now I feel totally guilty. I’m gonna have to send another package sometime when she doesn’t expect it. (shhh, don’t say anything)
We have two packages of Tim Tams, which have a traditional and ridiculous method for eating, otherwise known as the “Tim Tam Slam.” Can’t wait to try this.
Some barbecue-flavored Shapes, which are delicious and addictive. We scarfed down half the box before we knew what had happened.
A HUGE bag of Murray River flake salt, which I LOVE, and had been out of for a while. Filled two big jars. WOW!
Some Milo, which near as I can tell, is malted barley you stir into milk. Must be good. Have to get more milk before we can try this one.
A small jar of Vegemite! I don’t think I’ve ever tasted it. I know people either love it or hate it. I’m going to make grilled cheese sandwiches with some tomato and Vegemite inside. I bet it’ll be EPIC.
And finally, a little stuffed Koala bear! With an outback hat and jacket! SQUEE! What should I name him, peeps?
Thanks, Inga! You are a fabulous chick, and I’m so glad we’re friends.
