Ah, what a relief and delight for the soul in a busy season of packing and showing a house to come home to a wonderful box in the mail. Yes, that’s right! A gluten-free delicious sampler pack of yummy goodness from Mama Mead & Co herself (www.mamamead’s.wordpress.com). Joy in a box!
The sampler traveled perfectly (and those of you who have had a hand at gluten-free baking may have results that are sometimes crumbly. This traveled across the country – the Northwest to the Deep South – and all the treats were still lovely!).
The sampler had many different goodies inside, which I gladly shared with our children and my best friend and her children: peanut butter chocolate chip cookies (my middle child’s favorite and high on my list too), coconut chocolate chip cookies (my oldest child’s favorite), a molasses spice cookie (my best friend’s favorite and I think really high on the list of the children as well), caramel sea salt brownies (!!! which best friend and I ate happily), and a delicious, sweet, pecan-walnut-hazelnut granola. I have heard through the grapevine since then that a gluten free Oreo-type cookie has since also been added to the sampler box. Think of all the sunshine in one box!
You can see more pictures of Mama Mead’s lovely food on her blog, and also I have to say how much I love this particular reflection on motherhood here: http://mamameads.wordpress.com/2012/07/14/the-work-of-mothering-reflection/ . She also has a fabulous facebook page here: http://www.facebook.com/#!/mamameads. Hope that link works!
