My mom kept asking me for a Christmas list, and I’ll be honest, it was pretty hard at first! I honestly was at a loss. Laundry quarters could be nice. Yeah, give me a 3 month supply of laundry quarters! Or some socks! (Joking aside, Aaron always asks for socks for every holiday. True story.)
And then it hit me. The things I always want, have so much of, but always seem to “need” more of: cooking supplies. I mean, how else am I going to make cute mini loaves of bread for my neighbors or achieve the perfect crispy crust on my homemade pizza?
My mom awoke the cooking beast inside me. It had been pushed aside while I was being more practical and paying off silly things like credit cards and student loans, but now I remember my Achilles’ heel. Oh cooking, you beautiful, talented, brilliant, powerful Musk Ox. (Parks and Rec, anyone? I know Theresa got that one.) Happy holidays, and cheers to the time when you buy fun cooking supplies for yourself that you don’t really need, but secretly, you really do.
