Lewis and I are nothing like that.
We celebrated Valentine's Day yesterday. Sure, I love me some chocolates and flowers are always a welcome thing to get for me. But Lewis got me a couple of much more personal gifts; two items that I have been wanting and he showed his undying adoration of me by getting them.
He got me a kettle and a tortilla steamer.
Ooh baby, yeah.
I on the other hand was a lot more stereotypical with one of my gifts. I got him some chocolate turtles. But that is mostly because I have gotten him chocolate turtles for every Valentine's Day we have spent together.
His real gift was a new kitchen scale. Something he almost bought for me.
I'm having a difficult time coming up with a holiday since we have been married where I have not gotten something new for my kitchen. Lewis has hooked me up with a waffle iron, a mixer, two rolling pins (marble and French), a pastry blender, a pastry knife, a bundt pan, and springform pans, among other things. He has recently rekindled his own love of baking and cooking so gift-giving holidays will be including more kitchen accoutrements for him too.
Next up on our list of things to buy include a tortilla press (available only online as far as we can find, or else I would have gotten that for Valentine's Day), new whisks and spatulas (Mothers and Fathers Days?). I also want a proper set of sauce and frying pans.
We may not have much, but we have a pretty darn awesome kitchen.
|Someday our kitchen will look as awesome as the food that comes out of it tastes.|
Now if we could just avoid getting fat off of all this deliciousness...
