Pay it Forward Giveaway!

As I mentioned in my last post, I’ve been on a lucky streak recently!  Considering I am usually such an unlucky person, this is quite a welcome change.  My normal day to day life pretty much consists of various embarrassing, clumsy and just plain annoying incidents followed by me whining about said incidents to whoever I can coarse into listening.  It really is rather nice to have something other than ‘oh I fell down a hole today’ to talk about.

One of those lovely little blessings was winning a wonderful competition over at Tinned Tomatoes.  The contest was named Pay it Forward and is quite a unique little idea as by winning you’ve agreed to pay your good fortune forward.  I was lucky enough to win this delicious package of Scottish themed treats from Jacqueline containing loads of mouth watering goodies!

The butter tablet lasted all of 5 minutes after this photograph was taken ­čÖé

I love the coasters.  I took them to work for Kris and myself and they’ve received a lot of laughs from our north of the border customers.

I can’t wait to try this sauce out.  Doesn’t whiskey sauce just sound divine?!

If you would like to be in with a chance of winning a hand picked parcel of Newcastle’s foodie finest just leave a comment on this post.  The competition will close Sunday 22nd August and is open worldwide!  (Remember, by entering this contest you’re agreeing to post about your parcel and hold a giveaway of your own to award a box of local treats to someone else.)

Beat that for embarrasment :redface:You can find the recipe for Scottish tablet on my blog if you want it. It's pretty easy to make.Love the coasters. I'm Scottish (though now in Norfolk) and I've been meaning to buy a set of those for ages… !
