I hope everyone had a great Christmas! I know I did! I’m always amazed whenever I receive presents now because I assume that the older I get, the more I’m going to give than receive. Don’t get me wrong. I love giving presents and seeing my family’s reactions when they get something unexpected. However, it’s always an awesome surprise when you get something.
I received a ton of presents, but several of them were food related because of this blog! For instance, I got the cookbook that started it all:
And I got a bunch of stuff to help make cooking and baking easier!
My co-worker (Codename: Tasha) also bought me a digital food scale! Yes, I actually received this a couple of weeks ago at my firm’s office party, but my sister offered to re-wrap it so I could open it again on Christmas!
It’s also a running gag in my family to make me look as crazy as possible because, according to my sisters, I have the most boring profession ever and describe me as a “serious, scary attorney”. This is not the case, but it’s no use trying to change the minds of a psychology graduate student, a nursing student, and a biomedical and mechanical engineering student. Yeah, they’re bigger nerds than I am.
However, I don’t know how in the world the next two cookie cutters fit into the holidays:
The “best” present I received this year was probably the flu bug my baby nieces gave me! Yay! Since they had no money for presents, they had to give me something that they already had and could share with me, like fever, chills, body aches, and fun trips to the bathroom! Isn’t that thoughtful of them? The flu kept me out of commission and out of the kitchen for most of the holiday, which explains my lack of posting. Thankfully, my mother, aunt and Chunklet’s mom were all in town for Christmas, so kitchen duty was shared by all of us. However, I’ve almost completely shaken the bug and should be back to my normal self soon. Cheers!
