Never Look a Gift Horse...

I'm sure all of my friend [sic] think that all the produce I get is showered on me by grateful producers. He can't seem to accept that people will actually do something for nothing nowadays.

OK, I admit that in the 4 years or so I've been running this site, I have received 1 pot of Strawberry Jam (Thank You Sandra's Husband), and very nice it was too.

Anyway, you can imagine my surprise when I got an email from Abel and Cole asking if they could send me a complimentary organic fruit and vegetable box - I thought that it must be Christmas! Then I realised, It is!

There I am thinking I'm the luckiest blogger alive, when I pop over to Jules's Domestic Goddess in Training Blog and read this:

My love of Baileys, is well known. Not just for drinking it, but also cooking with it...

...Last week Baileys contacted me asking if I would like to try some of their new Baileys with a Hint of Coffee plus have a go at some of their recipes created by James Martin. Me being one to rarely pass on the opportunity to try a new alcohol or dessert recipe I jumped at the chance. It came at the perfect time as I had just finished my most recently bottle of Baileys and was trying to work out which Supermarket had the best deal for a bottle of it.

Talk about One-Upmanship, or One-Upwomanship in this case!

To any other major drinks manufacturers out there; I don't want to (Famous) Grouse 'cos I can't see the Woods (Navy Rum) for the trees. You know I promote local Lambs (Navy Rum) and (Black) Sheep (Ale). Come to think of it lots of this rings a Bell('s Brewery(or whisky - I'm not fussy)). And whilst I'm thinking of it, let's mention the Great British Generals - Gordon(s), Booth(s) and Grant...

To all at Abel and Cole - A Big Thank You - I'll write about your generous gift later.

I was once offered free absinthe but turned it down!

I'm somewhat incapacitated at present so replies may take some time. Please post urgent enquiries at the www.sausagemaking.org forum.
