Just Another Day…

Just Another Day…

…made up of little things that seem inconsequential really.  Still I have to remember these times, because they’ll be ammunition for when my kids are 21 and I want to embarrass them.  Cos I’m nice like that.

I bought Sausage and Darlek a small bottle of Vimto (or Vomit as I call it) on the way home from school.  Darlek happily drank hers, no problemo.  Sausage said it was ‘spicy’ but decided he liked it when he realised he could do brilliant burps with it.

As a result the last 10 minutes of the way home were very noisy.  If I had closed my eyes I could easily have pictured a sea-lion lolloping alongside me up the hill.

‘Baaarph!’  ‘Boooooaaark!’  ‘Brrrraaawph’  ‘Buuuargh’  etc etc.

I kept telling him that he’d make himself sick, but to no avail.

Darlek is acting like a teenager too, which is great.  I told her she couldn’t have a sweet at 8.45pm because she was just about to go to bed.  So she went to the fridge, opened it, threw the sweet in and slammed the fridge door with more than a little venom.  I told her if she slammed anything like that again she’d get sent to her room immediately.  So she burst into tears and I felt very guilty.  I hate arguing with either of them.  I slam things around when I’m annoyed so I guess she’s growing up just like mum.  I reckon the next time I slam a door she’ll tell me off and tell me to go to my room, and I’ll deserve it probably.  What goes around, comes around.

Last day of school today and I was supposed to pick them up at 2.30pm.  At 2.45 I was drinking a leisurely cup of tea when the phone rang and a rather annoyed receptionist told me my children were still waiting to be collected.  Oops.   It’s definitely not just my kids who act a bit daft sometimes.

Good news!  I saw my consultant yesterday and he has booked me in for an urgent flexi-sigmoidoscopy, but didn’t seem too worried about my recent symptoms.  He said that urgent flexi-sigs are done by surgeons, so if I need any work doing whilst they check out my innards they can sort that for me.  I’m hoping they have some good drugs because I don’t fancy being conscious whilst that’s going on.  The good drugs are the only nice bit really.  It’s a great excuse to get off my head and not have to worry about getting told off by my mum.

Horace has had a stinking cold but has been typically dedicated to his job and has gone in anyway.  Which is admirable, although I’m still rather unsure whether or not his colleagues will appreciate him giving them a cold for Christmas.  I’m sure they’d prefer a small bottle of vodka or something.  But if he wants to give them mild influenza, then it’s up to him.  It’s cheaper at least.

As for Christmas…well.  Our Christmas tree is up and decorated.  I have ordered a turkey too.  There were only a few turkeys left in the shop so I had to get the smallest one, which incidentally looked like it was actually ostrich rather than turkey.  I think we’ll all be a bit turkeyed-out by New Year, there’ll be tons left!  I might do a series of recipe blogs, ‘Turkey a-la-fried’  ‘Turkey a-la-microwave’ ‘Turkey wrapped in turkey parcels’  ‘Turkey with added seasoned turkey’.  You know when you say something too many times and it starts sounding stupid?  Turkey, turkey, turkey, turkey, turkey….. (downs small glass of sherry)..tukey, turkey, toonkey…. toorkney..turkey…twoknee…tooknees..toorkee…

Anyway!  I have a nice little Christmas craft tip to impart.  You only need two props.  A) A Christmas Tree and B) A box of Quality Street.  Are you up for it?

Right, Step 1:  Prise open huge tin of Quality Street. (make sure no-one else is around so you don’t have to share it)

Step 2:  Eat all the caramel barrels first before anyone interrupts you.  This is important.  They are the nicest ones.  If anyone comes in and asks where they are, say that they must have forgotten to put any in this tub and blame poor packing standards. That way you’re blameless.

Step 3:  Pile the papers in front of you.  Do not stop eating until you feel vaguely sick.

Step 4:  Get each sparkly wrapper, nip them in the middle and squish them upwards so they look sort of like scrunched up flowers.

Step 5:  Hold as many sweetie scrunched flowers as you can in both hands and lob them at the Christmas tree.  Most will land on the branches and will nestle there like delightful multi-coloured decorations.  Fallen Quality Street flowers blend nicely with the bits of shredded tinsel and pine needles embedded in the carpet.

This is a brilliant Christmas tip if I say so myself. I came up with this idea because I am very environmentally minded and am an avid reader of BBC Wildlife magazine and National Geographic.  I care about my surroundings.  So, save energy!  Don’t walk to the bin, throw pretty litter at the tree instead.  Recycle!  Repurpose sweet wrappers as Christmas decorations.  That way it will disguise exactly how many you’ve eaten too, so your partner won’t be able to sit there and look at you with that ‘I know you’ve eaten all the caramel barrels’ expression.

It’s a win / win situation.

Happy Christmas by the way.  Wishing all my readers a stress free, sparkly, family friendly, chocolate filled, sherry infused, drizzly with patches of sunshine, wonderful Christmas and an even more fabulous 2013.

Love from me. x :O)

A Lovely Chocolate Egg! Second Time Lucky!

A Lovely Chocolate Egg!  Second Time Lucky! 

The paper nestled around the egg is designed to stop it from being smashed in transit. I thought it looked like Lord Dark Toffius was wearing a huge fluffy white wig.

A while ago, you might remember I blogged about a manky egg.  A truly horrid thing to behold and an even nastier thing to take a bite out of.  After a lot of exchanges that were almost as horrid as the egg itself – Luckys of London and I have reached a truce.  IE, they have sent me another replacement egg, and the PR Agent for the aforementioned company was very apologetic in the end, so I’ve given up ranting about it.  Life’s too short to hold grudges, I’m sure you’ll agree!

‘Humpty Dumpty sat on the wall!’

Their PR agent has assured me that appropriate action was taken in regards to the dodgy egg I received before and I’ve been reassured that it won’t happen again to other customers.   So….now the hatchet has been buried, here’s my thoughts on one of their other, much nicer easter eggs.   It’s up to you whether you buy them or not….

This is the Lord Dark Toffius!  He is from their Humpty Dumpty Easter Egg range, so it only seemed appropriate to balance him precariously on our garden wall.  He didn’t fall off, I carefully took him down off the wall and  bit a chunk out of him before he had chance to. He didn’t suffer, honest.  If ‘All the King’s horses and all the King’s men’ had tried to put this egg back together again they’d have had a difficult job on their hands.

Please do not contact the ‘Royal Society for the Protection of Easter Eggs.’ He did not suffer unnecessarily.

Right onto the important stuff – ‘What does this egg taste like and what’s in it?’ (and is it a racist egg?)  Lord Dark Toffius?  Hmmmm…..

This Cadbury’s Cream egg sized easter egg is is 60% cocoa dark chocolate (so this is the reason for the name, it is not in fact racist, it’s just what it’s made of! Like you hadn’t guessed!) The filling is dulce de leche which is in layman’s terms caramel, toffee, fudgy, gooey stuff.

When I bit into it, it reminded me of Vienetta style chocolate, not in regards to taste, but in regards to the delicate crunch.  One bite reveals two thin layers of dark chocolate with ‘dulce de leche’ sandwiched in between.  I found the taste very, very sweet – teeth-meltingly sweet if I’m being honest.   The trend seems to be to add salt to caramel and I think this would have suited me a little better in this instance. That’s just me and my tastebuds though.  Others more experienced chocolate conessieurs would probably say that the dark chocolate perfectly balances with the sweetness of the filling.  Each to their own!

You can’t have it, I’ve eaten it all. So there!

The Lord Dark Toffius can be found at easter on the Luckys of London website for around £6.99 if I remember correctly.  This seems a hell of a cost for a small, hollow egg, but this is a grown up egg, with a grown up price, for grown up tastebuds I suspect.  I’m a child at heart so maybe that’s why it didn’t quite do it for me.  Don’t let that stop you from indulging though.  You might love it!

This egg was reviewed out of the kindness of my heart, considering it was, in all truth, a replacement for a prize that didn’t quite work out – although Luckys of London did send it to me for review purposes.  No other financial reward was given.

Eggscellent Eggs From Chocolate Madness!

Eggscellent Eggs From

Chocolate Madness!

Beautifully packaged and decorated!

After all my ranting about manky eggs, I thought I should really write about nice Easter Eggs too.  Just so you’re not put off them for life.  Chocolate Madness are a completely different company to the one I featured the other day by the way!

You see, Eunice at Chocolate Madness contacted me to say she was sorry I’d had such a bad experience with the mouldy egg, and she very kindly offered me two eggs for my kids to help make up for all the disappointment.  This is not a sponsored post by the way, this is just me writing about a really generous thoughtful lady who obviously makes quality chocolate, as opposed to the other company who made rather less appealing chocolate.

Nice eggs made here!

These Easter eggs arrived packaged in rouched cellophane tied with curly yellow ribbon, and they were neatly decorated with each child’s nick-name in swirly white chocolate icing.

These belong to my daughter, not to Dr Who's nemesis.

White chocolate smiley faces fell out of the egg after Darlek gnawed the end off it.     They were very quickly eaten!

Cheery chocolate!

Now, I don’t know about you, but I’m used to chocolate eggs that you can snap fairly easily with your fingers – they’re usually not amazingly thick…..but Chocolate Madness have obviously gone completely mad and have made mega thick chocolate.  This is what happened when Darlek decided that she wanted to smash the egg so she could eat it in little pieces to make it last longer.  Watch this!

(Sorry, I can’t use the slideshow option properly on here because I’m an idiot!  I just wanted you to see the photos of Darlek whacking the top of the egg with a wooden spoon, it took ages to smash!  This was an indestructi-egg!!  Very luxurious thick bomb-proof chocolate! Eunice said that her eggs were made with thick chocolate to make sure they survived the Royal Mail experience.  50 delivered and none smashed apparently!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

So, Chocolate Madness sent beautifully presented, immaculately decorated, luxurious thick chocolate Easter eggs that tasted delicious!  And I know this because I nicked a piece when they weren’t looking.  Bad me.

If you’d like a look around Chocolate Madness, here’s the website! Chocolate Madness!  They make cake toppers, wedding favours, novelty lollipops and far more, all at what I’d call sensible prices.

Many, many thanks to Chocolate Madness! The kids say thanks very much too and send chocolate smudged kisses.

Not So Lucky!

Not So Lucky!

The other day I was lucky enough to win an Easter Egg from a company running a competition on Twitter.  I’m not naming the company because I’ve yet to communicate with them about this so we shall see how that goes first.

They sent me a creme egg sized Easter Egg, which was beautifully packaged, complete with a chocolate bow on the front of it, it looked delicious and I decided to save it for a special occasion.  Today my husband finished work and so we have a full week together, it’s the Easter hols so we get to spend time with relatives, and generally have a lovely relaxed time.  So I thought this evening I’d celebrate by eating my delicious, luxury easter egg.

I unpacked it, cradled it in my hands and bit the top off.  I peered in to see what was inside, it was supposed to be a milk Valrhona chocolate egg with chai tea ganache filling – and I saw this:

Two fluffy caterpillars?

Please do click on the picture to enlarge it.  The piece I’m holding has a very slightly green centre, and there are two ‘things’ inside the egg that look like fluffy caterpillars, and a third patch of white fluff too.  I’m presuming they’re mould and not wildlife.  Well I hope not anyway, as I bit the top off the egg and tasted something funny.  If I’ve just eaten a caterpillar I will be even unhappier than if it’s just mould – which is bad enough!

I know for a fact, being an expert on chocolate an’ all, that chocolate does not ‘go off’ it just loses colour and gets a bit dry and tasteless – it doesn’t go mouldy like this?   So what have I just eaten?  And will I be sick?!  I feel sick just at the thought of it.

Penicillin anyone?

I’m sat here with a glass of homemade rhubarb schnapps, swilling my mouth with it, desperately trying to get rid of the taste.  I have enough tummy problems already and I’m hoping that whatever it is in there is not going to make them any worse.  It’s probably like the sort of mould you get on bread, but I don’t really know.

I looked up a few links on mould and ganache, here’s an interesting link if you’d like a look : HERE – Check post 25 on there…..

The point I’m trying to make is that if you are a company that is aiming to increase your presence on Twitter and on social networks via blogging projects or through competitions…..please…..please…….double please…..check your stock!!!!  My mouldy cheese blogging exploits were bad enough, it puts bloggers in an awfully embarassing position.  It also makes people who enter competitions feel cheated and very negative towards the company itself.  Good news spreads quickly, bad news spreads quicker, and mould appears to spread even quicker than that.

Imagine if you had bought this for a child?

This is not a sponsored post, nor have I mentioned the name of the company.

For the Love of an iPad!

For the Love of an iPad!

(and a bit of a dieting update)

Both kids love Horace’s iPad and spend ages playing games on it given half a chance.  Sometimes they play nicely and share, other times they bicker like cat and dog.  The main problem is that Sausage can’t always get his head around the rules of these apps, and Darlek takes the rules very seriously.  Sometimes there are squeals and sharp words exchanged, usually along the lines of ‘Poopy-Pants!  You’re ruining the game!’ or ‘Gerroffit, it’s my turn’.  Or the worst line ever which is ‘MuuuuUUuum, tell him to stop it!’ and I have to play mediator, which I’m rubbish at because I can’t ever work out who’s being the biggest iPad hog as they’re as bad as each other to be honest.

Sausage in particular really loves the iPad.  The other day his dad asked him in the way parents do, ‘Who do you love then?’ and he replied ‘Daddy and his iPad’.  He followed that with ‘Mummy doesn’t have an iPad, but I love her anyway.’  Which is reassuring, I think?

The other day he begged me to let him stay at home instead of going to nursery.  Me being the needy Kay that I am, said ‘Why?  Do you want to stay home with mummy?’  The reply was ‘I want to play Lego Batman all day!’  I was quietly miffed and wondered at the time if he’d love me more if I wore a Batman costume.  I used to worry when the kids would talk back to the presenters on kids telly, now I worry that Horace and I are in direct competition with the electronic babysitter gadgets too.

In other news, I’m losing the will to diet.  Help me!  I’ve gone from 11 stone to 10.2lb, and then back up to 10 stone 3lb.  I know I’ve gone on about being ‘hungry’ but honestly, this diet does give you more than enough to survive on.  I just want sweet things.  I lust after puddings terribly!

The first two weeks I literally didn’t touch chocolate or biscuits or crisps or anything at all that wasn’t part of the diet.  My will power was excellent for a while, but no-one can keep that up for very long and I slipped.  In fact I slipped into, this last week, 3 pieces of apple & blueberry pie, a whole massive packet of marshmallows, peanuts and an illicit after 10pm salami sandwich with loads of butter.

I confessed all to Claire my consultant and she was very understanding.  In fact she pigeonholed me perfectly, so much so that I was actually taken aback.  I am apparently a ‘diet extremist’ despite never having dieted properly in my life before this diet review.  In a nutshell I have taken this Jenny Craig diet as a set of rules I cannot break and I have followed them to the letter – so much so that I didn’t even sniff a bar of chocolate.  Now I’ve pushed myself so hard, I’ve swung the other way and have begun bingeing again.  Not one biscuit, but the whole packet kind of thing.   I think it’s something to do with being an extremist in general.  I’m an all or nothing kinda gal.

The trick apparently, is to treat the diet like a lifestyle change rather than a diet.  I can’t possibly carry on devouring whole ‘nice to share’ packets of crisps all to myself in half an hour – I’ll eventually end up the size of a house.  I need to stop being so extreme and let myself have small treats, whilst not depriving myself.  That way I won’t find myself going nuts and eating four cadbury creme eggs in a row, as I have done in the past.  It’s about finding a balance.  I’m not sure I can do that, but I’ll try for the next week and a bit.   (she says with a scraped clean empty bowl of apple and blueberry pie sat in front of her).  It’s not easy.  I feel like I’m trying to give up smoking or binge drinking or something.

So that’s me and my thoughts for the day. I’m going to shuffle into the kitchen now with my empty bowl and try and hide it from Horace’s line of sight.  He looks  at me and smirks every time he catches me eating anything remotely out of diet bounds.  Well, I’m only human!  And I really like puddings.  So bite me! *looks insolent*

Cooking with Caramel Nibbles from Cadbury!

Cooking with Caramel Nibbles from Cadbury Dairy Milk.

The ingredients! (there are two invisible eggs on there, I erm...forgot to photo them)

Ages ago I was sent some Caramel Nibbles to cook with.  It was way before Christmas and somehow I never managed to get around to the actual cooking bit.  This was mainly because the main ingredients kept getting eaten, and had to be rebought on two separate occassions. Anyway, yesterday I managed to get on with it and I’d love to share the recipe with you, my lovely, chocolate starved readers.  I know you’ve run out of the Christmas chocolate now and the withdrawal symptoms are kicking in.  Here’s how to get your sugar high back.

At the end of the blog I have included the ingredients  list and the method as it was passed to me, just in case you want to do this professionally and properly, unlike moi.   I had a go!  You can’t knock me for trying!  At no point have I ever EVER said I’m a cupcake genius

So! Here we go!  First of all I enlisted my son to help with the complicated cookery mixing and sieving and weighing out bits.  As you can see he spent most of the time licking a cupcake mixture covered spoon instead.

The sous chef checking the mixture had been mixed correctly.

First things first, I creamed the butter, sugar, vanilla extract and then added the eggs, flour and milk.  I have not been able to assemble my mixer since having had the new kitchen and not being able to locate random bits of it so this was done badly by hand.

This took forever and I couldn't get the lumps out. My fault entirely.

Then I melted one packet of Caramel Nibbles in a bowl over a pan of hot water.  Don’t over fill the pan of hot water, it spills everywhere.  I know!

Maybe gentle microwaving would be easier?

The next step was to mix this brown gloopy mixture in with the yellowish eggy floury gloopy mixture.  Ideally you use a blender to mix it thoroughly together.  I could not find the bottom half of my blender and after much rooting in cupboards and getting annoyed I gave up and tried to mix it by hand via whisk. I suspect the colour should be more evenly distributed, I had sort of coffee looking blotchy stuff with lumps in.

After it had cooled a little I poured this mixture into the cupcake wrappers with the help of my little sous chef who was by this point very sticky.  I’ll tell you this for nothing, Caramel Nibbles could be used as a replacement for superglue if there was ever a superglue famine.

I think Sausage had eaten half the mixture by this point.

They were put into the oven for 18 minutes and came out looking like this!  So much for even heat in a fan oven.  Guess which were on the top shelf…..

Taaaah Daaaah!!!! *Does jazz hands*

For the icing I heated up some double cream and added a whole packet of broken up Caramel Nibbles (minus approx 12 for decoration).  Once the Nibbles had melted into the cream I removed it from the heat and bunged it all in a bowl.  Once it had cooled I removed the cling film, and added a ton of icing sugar.

The muddy coloured mixture was poured into a bowl and covered with cling film to prevent a skin forming while it cooled.

Finally I dolloped the cupcake icing onto the cupcakes and artistically balanced Caramel Nibbles on the top of them.  Then I carefully sorted through all of the buns to find the most presentable one, which I have thoughtfully photographed for your viewing pleasure.

MMMMMmmmmmm.........

The others are blurred in the background because they looked like they were the work of a 3 year old.  I could have pretended that they were actually the work of a three year old, but I have decided to tell the truth.  I iced them like that.  They dripped all over the place because again I couldn’t find a goddam whisk so my double cream wouldn’t go fluffy.  Still they tasted lovely!  Definitely sweet, in fact sweeter than sweet.  I suggest brushing your teeth thoroughly after eating, if you’re teeth aren’t glued together that is.

The over all judgement?  I’m rubbish at making sweet stuff, so these could have turned out much better.  I reckon that this recipe would be beautiful in the right hands.  Why not give it a go, instead of hoarding left over chocolate oranges from Xmas in the back of cupboards?  Or is that just me?

This is the proper recipe bit if you want the finer details!

Cadbury Dairy Milk Caramel Nibbles Cupcake Recipe!

Ingredients

  • 1 x 175g pkt Caramel Nibbles
  • 180g caster sugar
  • 100g butter
  • 100ml milk
  • 220g plain flour, sifted
  • 1 ½ tsp baking powder
  • 3 large eggs, beaten
  • 2 tsps vanilla extract

Icing ingredients

  • 1 x 175g pkt Caramel Nibbles
  • 180ml double cream
  • 200g icing sugar, sifted
  • Edible gold glitter (optional)

1.       Preheat the oven to 160c Fan/180c/Gas Mark 4. Cream together the butter and sugar with an electric mixer, add the vanilla extract and mix well. Then add the eggs, flour, baking powder, milk and mix until thoroughly combined.

 2.       Take the first packet of Caramel Nibbles and melt to a paste in a bowl over a pan of hot water. Add the paste to the cupcake mix and mix well with an electric mixer to distribute the caramel loveliness thoroughly. Place cupcake wrappers into your cupcake pan and fill each wrapper with cupcake mixture 2/3rds full.

 3.       Bake in the oven for 18-20 minutes until golden on top then allow to cool for a couple of minutes in the tray before transferring to a wire cooling rack.

 4.       For the frosting take the second packet of Caramel Nibbles, take out 12 Caramel Nibbles and set aside. From the remaining Nibbles measure out 120g and chop into small rough pieces to make the frosting.

 5.       Place the double cream into a pan over a low heat. Add in the chopped Caramel Nibbles and continue to heat gently, stirring to melt the chocolate pieces. Keep the mixture moving with a spatula to encourage the pieces to melt. This will take about 4 minutes over a low heat. When all the pieces are melted down, remove from the heat and place in a bowl to cool. Cover with food wrap, pressing it down onto the surface of the Caramel mixture to stop a skin forming.

 6.       When your icing mix has cooled, completely transfer to a large bowl and add 200g of sifted icing sugar. Mix well with an electric mixer. If the mixture is slightly too runny, add a little more icing sugar to stiffen.

 7.       Now we’re ready to go! Spread the frosting on top of the cupcakes or pipe for a professional finish. Add one Caramel Nibble to the top from those you set aside earlier. Finally a sprinkling of edible gold glitter!

I was sent two 75 g packs of Caramel Nibbles, no other financial reward was given which is a shame because I must have bought four packets of these things as a result of this blog.  They are very moreish!!!

Healthy Supplies and an ‘Ombar’

Healthy Supplies ‘Ombar’

Blogging has its advantages, one of which is that I’m ocassionally sent things to try out – and although the link between parenting and chocolate is probably a little shakey, and this could be classed as off topic – I beg to differ!  When everything goes to pot, when the kids are screaming, when I find out Darlek has painted her nose bright red with nail varnish (comic relief), when Sausage has decorated the bathroom wall again…..when it’s all a bit crap, chocolate is often my solace.  I suspect I’m not on my own with that either.

Location, climbing up the bathroom walls.

So Healthy Supplies are currently very popular with me at the moment!  I’d say they are my new best buds, in that they sent me some free chocolate.  (This is one of those sponsored posts I mentioned).  As always, this is a truthful post, so you can rely on me to tell it how it is though, and Healthy Supplies are well aware of that.  I’m just as capable of saying ‘Ew’ that’s awful, as saying ‘that’s good stuff, that is!’  I’m happy to promote them as they have a massive website stocked with ‘Healthy Supplies’ funnily enough, and the more of that kind of thing that’s on the market, the better I’d say!

I don’t drive, struggle to get about and live out in the sticks.  If I want particular spices or flours, or even the aforementioned slightly-different-to-the-usual chocolate I find it very difficult to get hold of unless I go trekking on buses with bags and pushchairs.  Shops like these are brilliant because they send the stuff straight to you, minimum hassle!  So, I’m going to be using a few of their ingredients / products in random adventures in cookery blogs, and here and there.  They have a massive, very professionally designed website, complete with recipes, health information, forums, dietary information.  If you’re looking for healthy food resources, Healthy Supplies is well worth a wander around.  I’m very pleased to have found them.  We have one tiny health food shop in our market in town, and it never seems to have what I’m looking for.  Healthy Supplies couldn’t be more different!

Anyway, where was I?  Chocolate.  The ‘Ombar’ or the ‘Omnomnomnom’ bar as I called it.  I’m not going to pretend I’m a chocolate expert with exquisite tastebuds, I just know what I like – and I actually liked this chocolate. In fact I’d go to say I really liked it.  Generally I’m not a fan of dark chocolate so I wasn’t sure how I’d find this, but it wasn’t too cloying and sharp at the back of my throat as I’ve found other dark chocolate to be.  It had a hint of coconut and vanilla that wasn’t all pervading or intrusive, and it added to the bitter sweetness very nicely.  And, shock / horror.  It’s healthy stuff too! Apparently it’s made at lower temperatures to retain the natural goodness of the ingredients, it’s organic and contains no added sugar or additives.  Genuinely good stuff and I suspect a not more nutritious than your average bar!  Delivery is at ‘cost price’ so you’re only paying for what you order, no hidden costs. So not a bad purchase if you’re after something indulgent, and yet good for you.  A rare combination!

This is a link to Healthy Supplies website if you’d like to explore their products further, and you can find them on Twitter under the name @HealthySupplies.  They have a lot of products that are gluten free and suitable for people with allergies (might be useful for you Elaine!)

Unwrapped and alluring!
