Yummy Nutritious Nibbles – what a treat for International Women’s Day!

March 8, 2011
(Minus one packet, oops!)

Today is International Women’s Day AND Pancake Day and so far it’s been lovely! We started the day with a pile of drop scones (more a lure to get the children out of bed and ready for school than anything, but it worked!)

I then set off to Carlow to help a great bunch of people start to sow their vegetable seeds (always enjoyable). This was immediately followed by a Women In Business Network lunch meeting held by Carlow Enterprise Board.

As an owner manager I find these events especially helpful and informative. I’ve picked up so many tips, advice and ideas from speakers and other business owners that I always try to make time to attend them. I usually come away feeling so motivated and inspired and it’s also a great excuse to catch up with others.
Today I was especially delighted to see Rebecca Smyth from Nutritious Nibbles who handed me a prize of her gorgeous gluten free cookies that I’d won recently.

When I left a comment on her blog, I hadn’t expected to win anything, so when Rebecca told me she would be sending me a prize I had assumed it would be a little packet of cookies…… So what a surprise when I was handed a beautifully gift wrapped package that I almost feel guilty opening.

As far as we’re aware nobody in our family needs to eat gluten free food, however you don’t need to be gluten free to eat them …. they’re GORGEOUS! Our eldest now almost wishes he was gluten free… “if it means everything tastes like this…. and they’re handmade. WOW!” (Note to Rebecca: that was serious praise..!)

So on behalf of my delighted family, a massive THANK YOU. Keep your eyes peeled for Nutritious Nibbles HANDMADE cookies. They’re available in the Arboretum for anybody local, have already won a Gold Taste Award in their first year and come in several flavours including White Chocolate and Hazelnut, Cinnamon & Raisin and Chocolate Chip.

And in case you’re wondering why I’m feeling guilty, our school is holding a fundraising cookery demonstration this Friday by Christine Jordan of Tasteworks Cookery School and are looking for raffle prizes. Ooops, sorry lads…. we’ve opened them!
