I was so pleased to finally receive my package from Crystal! It may have arrived a little worse for wear (damn you, careless postal workers!) but minus a couple of broken jars, I love my package from Austin. What does it contain? Well, I’ve already tested out the Mexican table chocolate, which makes the most amazing hot chocolate! I’ve also busted out a cannela stick (that’s a cinnamon stick to you) to put into my morning brew and worked on 2 crossword puzzles in a little booklet she sent as well. I can’t wait to use the brown sugar cane cone, the green salsa, the austin nuts and the mexican pasta. Crystal even put little notes on each item letting me know why she chose them and how she uses them in her home. I love it! I’m thrilled with my package (and less thrilled with the postal workers at customs — grrrrr!) and touched by the care that went into it all. Thanks so much Crystal!
