What was the worst gift you received, and who did you receive it from?
I can't even describe it..Other than it's a hat. I'd have to take a pic of it when I get home.
Can't wait to see it!
underwear, but then my parents have been giving me underwear as a joke ever since I was 11, so I'm not mad
A Cookbook is what i got. Do you think they're trying to send hints to me??? I cant cook to save my life. Guess it's time to really start trying though!
Huh! If Shattered can cook...so can you!
it wasn't me, but my husband's aunt. her sister-in-law gave her a "White Trash Cook Book"...this wouldn't have been so bad if they had a relationship where they could do stuff like that with each other, but the snobby one is an elitist liberal, and my hubby's aunt is a mid-income conservative.
i don't think i personally have ever gotten a gift i didn't like. i know i have received duplicate items, like books that i already have, and such.
Cooking is a sinch with the a recipe. Ever eat at a pizza place? That stuff is made by pimply 16 year olds who can't even balance a checkbook. Surely you can do it, too.
i suppose if you don't like to cook at all, maybe it was inappropriate, but i actually asked for cookbooks this year.
besides, you may find you like some of the recipes in there. if you can read, and follow instructions, step-by-step, you can cook easily. just pick something like quiche or an omelet. then move onto more complicated things. a good book to use is The Joy of Cooking. It's like the Bible of many chefs and bakers.
