I wasn't expecting my package today, but when I got home, I saw a package on the little table under my mailbox on my porch. I thought it might be a present I ordered for a friend - but no! My cookies from Lethargic had arrived. Poor things, they sat there all afternoon and much of the evening, lonely and cold and a little damp, as we have been swimming in rain all afternoon. The postal dude put them up against the house, though, so they were well sheltered - the cardboard was just a little damp, and the contents were fine. Fine? Delicious...
I brought it inside, and Boo here had to take a look:
Since it didn't smell like tuna, he wasn't much interested:
However, it DID smell like a confectionery, so I was
interested. Inside, I found a great oven mitt, to protect my fingers from future endeavors with the oven, a lovely little note, and a cool wrapping paper envelop full of recipe cards:
And underneath all that, I found this gorgeous tin:
I really like the cookie tin. I just bought wrapping paper on the same theme - graphic and bright red and bright white.
But more than that, I love what was inside. My cookies arrived all intact. You know that they were well packaged, as these beautiful meringues were unbent, and unbroken:
Next to the meringues, I found these fabulous looking pumpkin spice cookies:
Oh, and beneath these, there was more, much more. First came a layer of chocolate crinkle cookies. I've tried one of these - I couldn't resist - and they are to die for. And then, underneath the chocolate cookies, I found still another layer
, this time of the festive cranberry noels:
I have a terrible dilemma, now. I cannot decide which cookie to eat next!
Thank you, Lethargic!
