Ms Tagalong tried not to get her hopes up too high this month. The non-arrival of August's Foodie Penpals parcel made her so sad!
But with impeccable timing for Halloween the parcel from the lovely Kim in Manchester arrived bursting with sweeties!
Sweeties? 'Mmm, not food but just as good,' said Mr Ideasman as he watched Ms Tagalong decant the Halloween jelly beans into a bowl.
Kim said they are very good beans, no artificial flavourings, no additives and Ms T is determined to eat them before any little ghoulies or witches turn up on the doorstep demanding treats.
Kim also sent some of her favourite large smartie type sweeties called vice versas. No colours here just chocolate and more chocolate! The package included some black pepper ramen crackers and a pack of herby snack biscuits of Mediterranean origin. Variety being the theme of her pack she also sent a tin of Polish chicken pate!
A pack of On the go trail mix will pop into Ms Tagalong's pocket the next time she goes off investigating some garden or the other!
As Ms Tagalong's Foodie Penpals recipient is not a blogger this is a photo of what was sent her, herbs and spices from the Mediterranean plus ingredients for a Catalan Romesco sauce.
Ms Tagalong just loved tasting this Romesco sauce on her travels and so ths is a link to a recipe for it.
It's great to have some feedback, so please leave me some comments.
