From Germany With Love

** I will be hosting a giveaway, tomorrow, on Wednesday!  Please make sure to stop by! **

Awhile back, one of my readers, Anne (who lives in Germany), contacted me.  She'll be in the United States in May and was wondering if we could meet.  We've corresponded a few times trying to work out the details.

I was delighted when she emailed me about two weeks ago to inform me she had sent a package to me.

I'm not much better than a child as far as surprises (!) and packages (!) and presents (!) go.

I've been waiting, and waiting, and waiting, to see what my surprise might be.

Finally, this arrived:

Inside I found this:

There was a very nice letter in the pretty flowered envelope.  

Also?

There was German chocolate.

And then?

There was more chocolate.

But what's in the pretty box?

Well, do you remember awhile back, I shared with you some Fun Facts?  One of them, was about rubbing your hands on stainless steel after cooking with garlic or onions to make the strong odor completely disappear from your skin.  (This was a tip from my friend MrLady.)

Shortly after reading my post, Anne found Stainless Steel Soap in one of her local stores and thought of me.

How clever is that?

You set the "soap" in it's little black soap dish in your kitchen.  I put mine right by my sink.  After cooking with garlic or onions, you rub your hands on the "soap" and it eliminates the smell from your hands. 

This means I don't have to get all friendly with my stainless refrigerator anymore.  (Or rub my hands on a knife (!) as some of my readers mentioned they do.)

Better yet, unlike real soap, the stainless steel soap will last forever.

I'm thrilled with my surprises.

(I know some of you might be interested in purchasing Stainless Steel Soap also.  If you are, you can find a few brands to choose from on Amazon by clicking here.)

Thank you, Anne, for your thoughtfulness!

I hope everything works out so we are able to meet in person in May.

    How cool! I’d love to have one of those. I’m tired of having to chat up my draining board.

    I might have to speak to my sister-in-law and see if she can send me a similar package. (She and my brother live near Hamburg.)

    Hey I never heard of that, that’s such an awesome idea. And German chocolate, is THE BEST! I was happy that when we moved to CO a month ago there is a German shop here that actually imports all food/chocolate here, and it’s such a treat. Yay1
