Boy, is time getting away from me these days. I blame the piano. I'm supposed to be holiday shopping and planning the school bake sale on Friday, but instead I'm trying to learn Vince Guaraldi's Christmas repertoire on the piano. Needless to say, things are not going well in any of these departments. *Cue wistful Charlie Brown music played by someone who's not me
So instead, I thought I'd share with you a list of Christmas ideas for the food-lover, the food-lover in question being me, mostly. But perhaps there might be some overlap with you. Could happen. Here are a few awesome gifts one might like to find under (or on) the tree this year:
1. Morel Mushroom Ornaments: I want you all to focus on the sheer awesomeness of finding one or more morel mushrooms hanging on your Christmas tree quite by surprise. Huzzah! It's not even mushroom season! Let's put aside the hefty $16 price tag for a minute and take a look at the detail. They look like actual morels. See? These ornaments are totally blowing my mind right now. What's that, Internet, you don't want any fungus hanging from your Christmas tree? Well, I don't even know what to say to you anymore.
2. Whisk Necklace: I'm not really into jewelry, but the simplicity of this silver whisk on a chain really spoke to me. It also strikes me as handy to always have a tiny whisk on your person because you never know when you might need to whip up a tiny batch of vinaigrette.
3. Pig Shirt: Somebody needs to be wearing this T-shirt right now. Is it you?
4. Pie Box: This is just a good practical gift. I recently got one for my birthday and it enables me to not smash every pie dish I own while transporting my desserts all over creation. Everything is good and protected and stackable. I do wish the box was maybe an inch taller for the deep-dish pies with the domed tops, but that's a modification for Pie Box 2.0.
One last reminder: my book is still awaiting a place on some of your kitchen counters. Don't let another holiday season pass you by without checking it off your list. You can purchase it at Amazon - B&N - and many indie bookstores. Thanks again for your support.
