I received an email from my dearest friend in the whole wide world. This lil’ email informed me that I would be receiving a package of goodies that she had collected during her travels of items that reminded her of me. Let me tell you…I was so stinkin’ excited about this gift. I didn’t even lie and tell her she should not have gotten me anything. I told her the truth of the matter~~I am so glad that she had spent her time and money on me. Really I was and I just won’t lie about it. Well let me tell you that when the package was delivered to my porch I was like a little kid at Christmas. I was so excited and giddy with anticipation that I stood there for a few short seconds to enjoy this feeling. Then I ripped into the box—and I realized at that moment this person knew me and knew me well. First off, I picked up a brown paper sack that had once held some of these precious gifts. This sack has those nice jute handles that are so nice to carry items in. How could she have know that I loved the sacks that hold all of my goodies until I get them home. I have a bunch of them in my closet!! The ones with handles are my favorite and I cant bring myself to throw them away. I think that this part of the gift was UUUHHH-mazing. The other items that were contained in this box of “know”ledge will be discussed in separate blog entries that are written especially about them. The first item that I decided to write about is all about food. How did you all ever guess it would be about food—I told you all this person knew me. Ina Garten (AKA) Barefoot Contessa is one of my favorite celebrity cooks that I watch on the Cooking Cannel and Food Network. So when I pulled out a box that had a picture of this famous person on it and also contained white cake with coconut you can bet I had a smile on my face. Once again this person gets me. My favorite flavor of cake is white and I am into cup-cakes like nothing else. It is such a nice neato way of consuming cake.
This is actually the final product with the beautiful red cupcake liners that were included in the “know”ledge box. Many thanks are being sent your way. Thank you so…so much!!
