Ballycumber Soup RABCK, anybody? CLOSED

Just back from the Convention's Ballycumber village pilgrimage.
Of course we also invaded the convenience store cum post office (and then the pub) - and I bought Vegetable Stock Cubes for a lucky BCer.
So who would like Ballycumber soup?
To enter post here, I'll draw a name some time soon...
It's international.
(I might throw in a Dublin fridge magnet & a postcard or so as well...)

I would love to enter. I hope it won't be stopped at the border.

I hope you lot didn't scare the poor Bally villagers too badly...*grin* Wish I could have been there!

Yes please!

The only instant stock I have at the moment is an empty Marmite jar, waiting to be rinsed out!

Wow. Ballycumber soup sounds delicious. Please send me a recipe for if I get drawn.

Count me in!

Bad news: I stole some of the cubes. You'll only get four and not eight. Such is life. But I had to get up at 4:30 in the morning to catch my plane...
Good news: I'll throw in some other stuff... What about Guinness chocolate? (Yes, beer chocolate.) And a Bookcrossing pencil bought at the Dublin Convention? And a Ballycumber charm? And a Kilkenny Castle fridge magnet? A few tea bags (and coffee) from Ireland? And a Guinness beer mat - from that pub in Ballycumber! And three recipe cards from the Guinness brewery (for Guinness chocolate mousse etc.). A bit of barley I stole at the Guiness brewery (they have enough: http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/10091087/ ). And an original Dublin Convention goodie bag! But mind: just the bag, not the contents we got, I'll put the other stuff in.
(BTW we had a lot of fun at the Guinness brewery... http://www.flickr.com/---/pool-1930996@N20 - the whole Convention was simply fantastic!)
And now you want to know if it is you who'll get this package? Yes, hyphen8, it is you.

Oh my goodness, how exciting! Thanks very much. :D

Package arrived today (4/25) - wow! Photo here: http://www.flickr.com/---/7115160323

Thanks again. :)

And thanks to ApoloniaX for the rabck :) But did you mention Guinness chocolate mousse?! Now that recipe I have to google and add to my list of Guinness treats! Guinness mayo with fries is one of the best odd things I know, so I bet the mousse is just as delectable...

Cool!!!

Congratulations Hyphen8! Well done Apoloniax...even if it is only 4 cubes LOL

There are just too many participants who didn't win.... gotta draw another name... BTW the vegetable stock is lovely. One might think it's just ordinary vegetable stock, but no... there is a special something to the taste, it's got that magic touch to it - it's from Ballycumber after all. I decided I could part with one more cube. And to fill the package up a bit I'll throw in some more stuff: a chocolate bar from Ballycumber convenience store, a Kilkenny Court House fridge magnet (nice release spot) (http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/10411769/ ), a tea bag from Ireland, and some scary Leprechaun mints (not from Ballycumber, only from Dublin).

Talk about bringing the sunshine out on a gloomy rainy Monday afternoon. JACKPOT in a brown envelope!! I just kept finding more and more goodies in that
Magic bag with so many beautiful stamps on it. WOW!
...a postcard from Dublin, lots of Guiness goodies, a Ballycumber charm and a notebook for my purse with the coolest design.
The chocolate was awesome!! My favorite is the York peppermint patty, so this was even better. Thank you so much, my dear friend. One day, karma will come aknockin' at your door.
