If this year’s Christmas takings were indicative of what kind of Christmas gifts I can expect in the future then I’m never stopping this blog.
So what did I open on Christmas morning? Well, Karen got me Kitchen Confidential by Anthony Bourdain, which is good reading in case you’ve been thinking about opening your own restaurant.
My sister got us some custom printed aprons, and these came with opening instructions. I was to open my present first,
Then Karen was to open hers.
I’m looking to market these in local Wal-Mart stores. I’ll get them on the shelves, I know the overnight stockers.
My sister also sent a “Giant Art Jar” for Jonathan. When this arrived I took a quick glance at the packing list and thought for sure I’d seen “Giant ANT Jar.” I was on my way to Starbucks to get her kids some chocolate espresso beans when I realized my mistake.
A dear friend who visits this blog once a quarter got us a set of Alton Brown’s plungers, perfect for measuring and doling out those sticky ingredients.
Thanks, Michelle. Your copy of Why Mommy is a Democrat is on the way.
So how cool was that? Best Christmas Ever. These presents give me the idea that people actually read this blog. Pretty soon I’ll get an ego like Stephen Colbert. Oh yeah, I forgot to mention what Aliyah gave me.
