Way back in December, I entered a giveaway. A kitchen-things giveaway. Sounded like a good idea to me. And luck would have it, my name was drawn. How ’bout them apples? So a few weeks ago, I receive a package in the mail.
The hubs immediately accused me of shopping on eBay. I hadn’t. He just goes around accusing me of stuff all the livelong day. But it wasn’t anything I’d gotten from the interweb. It was my prize from Wendi at Bon Appetit Hon.
And inside was a microplane. I’ve never owned a microplane but I’ve always wanted to microplane things. My goal was to get my kitchen as messy as possible and whip out my microplane to grate some cheese or chocolate or lemon zest and photograph myself doing it. But everything that I’ve made lately has not required said microplane. Unless it doubles as a can opener.
But I will. Cross my heart. Hope to die. Stick a needle in my eye. I will photograph myself with that sword-like kitchen tool.
But I couldn’t wait any longer, I had to tell you what else was in that box.
Like any savvy business woman, she included her card. And a hand-written note. I love getting letters in the mail [that don't involve collection agencies]. I had pen pals as a child and that feeling of getting a special note with a stamp on has never died.
You’re probably wondering what that white box was. That, my friends, was a piece of the North East. I opened it and inside were about 10 little crab-shaped chocolates. I immediately knew they were the Old Bay crabs Wendi had talked about on her blog. And then I consumed them. So I have no pictures. So sorry.
Thank you, Hon, for having a fun giveaway. And thank you for your kind words and honest-to-goodness lovely little crabs. I pinky promise – when I use that microplane, credit will be given where credit is due. ;)
