Last Saturday I found a note in my mailbox: the postman had come by with a package for me and would be back the next workday, which would be Monday. I was bummed since I had to work on Monday... Monday arrived and I stayed home from work due to a massive migraine attack. After taking my medicine at 7.30 am I went back to bed to pass out (that's how my migraine medication affects me), only to be woken up at 11.00 am by my ringing doorbell. So I opened up my front door, looking my worst possible wearing a hot pink bathrobe, only to find out that this particular day we had the cutest substitute delivery-man one could think of.... Crap, just my luck!
I put the package in the living room and went back to bed. Offcourse when I finally woke up several hours later, with only the slightest bit of headache remaining (OMG, I love my migraine medication: now I'm only losing 1 day of work instead of 2 or 3!!). The first thing that came to mind was my package.... Like me, my cat was super interested in it! It was my Foodie Exchange package from Rossella. Rossella is the same age as me and lives in Milan, Italy.
Rossella sent me so much goodies!! There was a hand-made bag and dish-cloth, some orrchiette (pasta), risotto with saffron and porcini, saffron, pesto, olive oil, Italian flat bread, double concentrated tomato paste, nutella and Italian cookies!! I can't wait to try them all!!!
