Northern Surprises!

Oh. Em. Gee. Stuff came in the mail. Stuff came in the mail yesterday. Stuff came in the mail last week. OMG. Good stuff. Yummy stuff. I took pictures. Wanna see? I knew you did. Heh.


Y'all know Ellyn? Dlyn's girl? Holds Dlyn's grandkids hostage for long periods at a time. She surprised me with boxes o'stuff! Did you SEE that? Cheeses from a dairy farm in New York! Smoked gouda. Havarti dill. Garlic cheddar. Buffalo wing cheddar. Best of all (unbelievably good) is horseradish bacon cheddar! I'm a huge horseradish fan. This one's phenomenal. It came Friday. I had it for supper that night with crackers while everyone else had spaghetti. I had it Sunday night for supper. No idea what anyone else had. Had cheese, crackers and lunch meat for lunch with friends today. Mmmm.

But then ....

As excited as I was to see hunks of cheese show up on my doorstep, even MORE showed up today! Ellyn! What on earth are you thinking? Are you planning on having deep fried Flea for Thanksgiving dinner this year? Take a look:


Scrumptious, no? Look! Real maple syrup (the kids wigged out over this one):


Turtles and candied pecans! I loves them both. You should SMELL the turtles!


Maple kisses!


The cutest of all - the chocolate cow (and toffee thingies):


How cool is that? And it's not even my birthday! But it did arrive on my anniversary. Thank you SO MUCH, Ellyn!

Until I write again ...

What a HAUL of magnificent yummies, from horseradish to maple to chocolate. You've got good friends. Just be careful how you mix those chemicals. They might explode!
