gifts to yourself count too :)
These were all under the tree. I scored big!!
Andrew Zimmern's new kids book
Assorted "real" black licorice candy
A new oven mitt
Assorted glass containers with lids (LOVE!)
homemade onion and fig jam
homemade infused Vodka
Asian candies from a recent trip
New travel mugs (ceramic, not plastic. Yes!)
oh you got some goodins...
from World Market received an apron that I'll keep as it's funky cute. also from same store a small paperback soup cookbook and after looking at the TOC, the soups aren't my taste and wouldn't make "seared scallop lime infused cilantro" soup ever.
you know let's keep it real. we can't keep everything we receive just because...there's gotta be room and desire - I'm jus sayin
Garlic rocker, for the aging hands. It works wonderfully!
Wilton waffle stick pan, we're trying it in the morning.
batter dispenser, a surprise, and who wants to spoon pancake/waffle batter somewhere?
salt/pepper grinder set, which I admired while on vacation earlier this year
Michael Symon's "Carnivore" yesssss I am so making sausage!
gift card to The Toy Store, aka Sur La Table
Habanero maple syrup, reference waffle sticks above - that will be a definite A.M. wakeup
Key Lime Marmalade - tried some with toast, so good - going to use some with a little [non habanero] maple syrup on chicken thighs next week
a Cuisinart mini processor, to replace my mom's original - it died after many years of heavy use about a month ago.
All in all, a good food oriented Christmas
The friend who gifted this buys syrups from them at a suburban Minneapolis farmers market. [She also insures them. !]
It's got a good kick, but not a wild one. I went ahead and made the sauce with this syrup and the key lime marmalade referenced in my post for chicken the other day - YUM. It also makes the waffle sticks sing.
