and from Austin, TX!

I received my care package (swap organized by Lindsay) from Diann full of awesome Texas-ness. Actually I received this on Friday but am only now sitting my butt down to write about it. I just love care package swaps!
I don't know if you can tell from the picture but this box was big. It's a Zappos box, we're talking boot sized. Just opening it up was lovely. Everthing packed so nicely, a note & post card and a lovely scent. I figured I'd have to dig a bit to get to the bottom of the lovely scent.
A wonderful box of Texas goodness:
Agave Nectar
Blueberry Jam
Cranberry Habenero Jam
Soap (this was the aroma)
Corn Tortillas
Mexican Oregano
Texas Shaped Corn chips
Whole Foods shopping bag
Laura's Wholesome Junkfood cookies

Shortly after opening the box Lex ran off with one of the grapefruits.

I got a kick out of the cornships
They really are Texas shaped! Neato!

Mac got something out of the package too. Remember that ribbon tying it all together from the first pic?
Yup, that is the best thing ever!
The cookies are super yummy. Probably a good thing I can't get them around here or I'd be broke buying them all the time. Lex has already started in on the corn tortillas so if I want one I'd better get in there now. The stolen grapefruit was delicious, the other probably won't be around for much longer. Some oregano has found it's way into some tester chili to be posted at a later date. Mac is still loving the ribbon.

I did a swap with Neil from Cooking for a Vegan Lover and was never so excited in my life as when I opened that package! It's so great to receive gifts in the mail, no? And yours looks so fabulous (though we'd expect no less from Diann!) :)

Diann rocks! That looks like one fun package. I can't wait to hear how the cranberry habanero jam is.

Well, it has a cleaner look.... but I'm still getting used to using it. It's a lot easier now then when I started though!

That agave nectar is cool. Plain or flavored?
