Gifts in Our Kitchen

Posted by JMom | Friday, June 17, 2005 | 5 comments »

The past week has been a busy week, but it has also been a blessed week in our kitchen. Last Friday, I received the Donna Hay cookbook from the Baby Rambutan who generously raffled it off during her Hen Party. Thanks, Stel, I can't wait to try out some of the georgeous recipes!

That same day, my mom arrived, also bearing gifts. Since she knows us so well, all our gifts were of course edible in nature. My ever so thoughtful Sister O read that I am tapped out of saffron, so she generously sent me a pot of gold:

    Hi Ajay! yes, I have been very lucky lately and feel really loved. I feel loved just being visited :-)

    Hi Obachan! I just love the pot too! Can you believe there is only 4 small packets of saffron inside?

    Hi Stel! yeah, even in CA Sister O paid an arm and a leg for that pretty pot. I feel truly blessed :-) I can't wait to make something now...

    Hey mama, I'm glad we now have saffron in our kitchen. I've never used it before. But the other day befpre I made a marinade for some steaks, Grandma and I went out and bought some things. We found a big bag of saffron for a dollar! But it wasn't powdered, no nice jar either. But it tastes good with my steak marinade!! :)
