Last weekend DIL Ie sent out a group text to the family that said she was sending a snack box to each of our houses, and suggested we have a party via video chat. Several days after the original text we received an Amazon package. Inside there were seven small boxes. Can you tell what they were?
Does this view help?
It was a selection of Korean Oreo products! Five of the boxes contained cookies (traditional flavor, red velvet, and strawberry) and Thins (tiramisu and vanilla mousse). The two others were Wafer Sticks (chocolate and white chocolate).
I put the box on the corner of the dining room buffet. Each time I saw it I looked forward to this afternoon, which is when we had decided to Zoom. At the appointed mid-afternoon time we received the meeting ID. While we were logging in, Son Donald arrived on his way home from work. (He's not much of a sweets guy, so we had arranged to share with Hubby Tony and me.)
Even though we text and chat with each other on a regular basis it was good to have everyone's faces in one place. I was able to see all four of the grandchildren in action, each on their family screens. The cookies were opened and I tried one out of each box. All were good. Over the course of the two hour conversation I went back for seconds on most of them.
All of a sudden, between the sugar from all the cookies and the two cups of coffee I drank with them I started feeling not so good. I excused myself to the kitchen to whip up a quick dinner of savory oatmeal with spinach. About that time everyone decided they needed to move on with their days so we all said our goodbyes until the next time we could all be together.

Wonderful idea and get together!ReplyDelete
I thought it was quite creative.Delete
Too much caffeine combined with sugar oy boy, that would make me feel not so good too.ReplyDelete
The oatmeal helped; by bedtime everything was regulated.Delete

What a sweet (pun intended) idea to send sweets and set up a family meet. I love it.ReplyDelete
Kathy, there is a comment on here from "anonymous". It's not about you, it's showing up on a number of blogs. I'm sure you'll just delete it, but I wanted you to know it wasn't personal. If you want to talk about it, you can PM me on FB, or email me at BakingInATornado@gmail.com
