On Wednesday this week I came home to a few packages that had been delivered and I was very excited! Generally I'm quite excited about any package - like a kid at Christmas or something.
The first was a package from Oleifera who I had met at Enjoy the Taste of Scotland a few weeks ago. I was so excited, I had given them my address to have a sample bottle sent out to me and I was surprised that they had sent it and also that they'd sent such a large bottle!!!!
It's rapeseed oil that has half the saturated fat that olive oil has, can help to lower cholesterol, has your essential omega 3 and omega 6, and even has a high smoke point. I'm really looking forward to getting to use this in a few recipes - and then blog about it ;-)
The second package was something I had ordered on Ebay after seeing Megan from Megan's Cookin had ordered some herself. I ordered 60 vanilla pods for £12 with free P&P! Bargain seeing as it's £2.50 for 2 at my supermarket!
Stewie couldn't resist sneaking into photos again.... silly pup.
Anyways I can't wait to get using all this now!!! I'll have to come up with some exciting recipes for these ingredients!
