WANTED: Maggie, you're too much!!

My swap package arrived today!!!
When I got home from school, I found this package waiting by my door. When I saw the Florida citrus label, I panicked because it's about 5 degrees here this afternoon, but when I saw that it was from New York, I breathed a little easier.

I don't know how you-all can wait to take all those pictures! I paced myself, but I was so excited. Especially when I opened the box and found all these beautiful colors jumping out at me.

Maggie sent the most delightful things. I just kept saying, "Oh, that's perfect! Oh, this is perfect!" I couldn't have picked out a better package myself. She really did her homework and discovered that red is my favorite color. Without further ado, here are the delightful things I found.

( I see that all these links go to the same web page, so I could have saved myself a little time. This is the first time I've tried to put links in a message.)

Maggie sent the best note telling about herself and her family, and then she described her choices. I had not heard of Serendipity Frrrozen Chocolate, but it's such a perfect idea. I've only been to NYC a couple of times, and that spot was not on our itinerary. Can't wait to try it, but I may not share!
The heart-shaped mixing bowl and spatulas will be such fun to use. Luckily, Maggie had put in her description what was in the package, because in my excitement, I overlooked the sparkly red LeCreuset spatula that had settled to the bottom of the box. It is good to 800 degrees! So perfect for my kitchen.

I LOVE the ramekins. I saw the red ones when I was shopping for my swap partner, and I thought, "Gosh, I'd like to have those. No, I've spent enough." Glad I waited!

Maggie learned that I'm interested in the jam/jelly cookbook Mes Confitures, and she found this precious jar. I make grape jelly and want to broaden my horizons. The little jar is so Me!

And if that wasn't enough, she included a bonus box of scrumptious truffles, which I have been nibbling on while putting this message together.

Maggie, thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the effort you put into gathering this ideal package together. I know that I will enjoy these things for a long, long time (although the truffles may soon be gone!)

RE: WANTED: Maggie, you're too much!!

thanks,Karen. Actually, it's honed absolute black granite, but it was the soapstone look I was after! I remember studying your fabulous kitchen details on the kitchen forum. How far are you from Natchitoches? We have friends there. Visited the Rose plantation 10-15 yrs. ago. (I think that was the name.)

deanna, If I ever am lucky enough to do another kitchen ;~) I will use the honed black granite or soapstone. Great choice.

I'm a little over 100 miles to Natchitoches. We rarely go to North LA but when we do we always try to stay in one of the many beautiful plantations. The next time you go visit your friends I'd like to try to meet up with you.

RE: WANTED: Maggie, you're too much!!

Great choices, Maggie. The red suits your kitchen decor, Deanna.

I think they had the frozen hot chocolate on one of Rachael Ray's show recently. It looked yummo.....


 o
RE: WANTED: Maggie, you're too much!!

yummo..... roflmao! Rachel, is that you?


 o
RE: WANTED: Maggie, you're too much!!

Love the read theme, too! Great job! Enjoy!


 o
RE: WANTED: Maggie, you're too much!!

I saw the hot chocolate on rachel ray and on Oprah. Rachel cheated on that show and did not include the drink in her $40 limit as her fiance treated her.

Great package Maggie. Those ramekins are such a pretty color. I have a Le creuset stoneware casserole dish and it is great. Enjoy Deanna.

I covet it all! Great job Maggie!


 o
RE: WANTED: Maggie, you're too much!!

Now that's one great package, and I agree, the red stuff goes great with those countertops (which I love, incidentally)

I'm still trying to wrap my brain around frozen hot chocolate, though. I'm figuring if it's chocolate, it's got to be good.

RE: WANTED: Maggie, you're too much!!

Me too!

What a wonderful package. And so pretty from the initial presentiation to the final items.

Great job, great package!


 o
RE: WANTED: Maggie, you're too much!!

Annie,
According to the package, you put the ingredients of the package (which appears to be basically your chocolate milk or hot chocolate mix, with sugar and cocoa) in a blender with ice and milk. Served with lots of whipped cream and shaved chocolate or something. Maybe even a cherry on top! I wonder if it comes out a little like a milkshake. But since it makes a big batch, I'm saving it until my sisters come to visit. I think they'll appreciate it appropriately.


 o
RE: WANTED: Maggie, you're too much!!

Nice ramekins! Also, that Serendipity mix is something. You've gotta share. It's a treat.


 o
RE: WANTED: Maggie, you're too much!!

I love seeing the photos of your swap package. The heart-shaped mixing bowl and the jelly jar are so cute. Everything has a special heart-felt touch. Enjoy.

 o
RE: WANTED: Maggie, you're too much!!

Wow, Maggie - I love all this stuff - I swear I've looked at the photos 5 times - can't believe I haven't posted yet...sheesh.

Deanna, you did a great job describing - what fun you'll have with all those goodies that you'll think of Maggie each time you use them...
