My Monday theme kinda fell by the wayside today, I baked more cupcakes for WaiKikaMooKau this morning - Chocolate Peanut Butter and Speculoos Caramel.
Almost as soon as I'd finished shopping for more ingredients and washing up I got a text from the cafe to say that they'd sold out again! On a Monday! So, yeah, I kinda gave up on my theme and got baking again! I made twice as many this time and I'm really excited that this is going so well. I wish that I had a bigger kitchen so that I could co-ordinate baking and cooking for myself a little better, maybe I'll get the hang of it soon!
My UK Vegan Food Swap parcel turned up today, yay! It was full of so much lovely stuff and a really sweet note with explanations of all of the stuff in the package. I've been meaning to make some spring rolls with soy curls like these ones from Kittee's blog for a while now so I was super excited to find the wrappers in the package. On the right there are nori snacks, these little individually wrapped packets were the first thing I opened - I love nori and these are brilliant.
Also in the package were apple & strawberry fruit crisps, Moo Free chocolate drops, coconut flavoured Sesame Snaps and Seed & Bean lavender chocolate. I've never tried any of these things before and I'm super excited about them all.
Last but by no means least I pulled out a jar of Zest vegan pesto and some GranoVita Shiitake Pâté. I used to buy the Zest pesto all the time when I first went vegan but I haven't had it for ages and shiitake pâté is always a favourite of mine.
I love the UK Vegan Food Swap, I've never received a package I didn't love & as someone who loves both shopping and receiving post it's perfect. The swap is organised by To Happy Vegans & you can find out more information about it here.
