…I posted about my pre-Christmas excitement. The gift that I gave my mother (with my siblings, of course) was a butt-whoopin’ stand mixer with 700 watts o’ power and multiple non-stick-cast-iron attachments. The giftee seemed to enjoy it, and we held the inauguration the week after Christmas when we made chocolatechip cookies. Later that week, I made s’mores brownies; holy WOW, they were coma-inducingly delicious!
The individual for whom I created gifts received a 9-foot fleece blanket covered with penguins, a hand-made football-shaped pillow, and a decoupaged box for the love letters that I’ve written to him. He gave me a pair of slippers, Spore: Creatures, and two football jerseys for my favorite team (eff yeah, Huskers!) with my favorite player’s number (Suuuuuuuh!). His mother was sweet enough to give me a gift, and it may have been my favorite: a Rachael Ray cookbook. I love cooking, AND I love eating food, so a gift that offers the pleasures of both is very welcome to this little blogger.
On another note, I made some awesome aprons over the all-too-short winter break. I may have to put up a picture or two.
PS: Anyone know how many dashes I used? :)
