Something that I’ve been doing for anniversary, birthday, or holiday gifts is to give the gift of a meal that I know they love. I purchase all of the dry ingredients, place them in a gift bag (size depends on the dry ingredients…some gifts have come in grocery-sized gift bags! LOL!) and a recipe card.
The recipient knows what they have to purchase for fresh ingredients and can shop sales;-D For the following recipe, I gift a small bag of flour, a jar of bouillon cubes, a bottle of sherry, a container of salt and pepper, celery seed, marjoram, and thyme plus a recipe card for this recipe;-D This is a most requested recipe by friends and family…they only have to purchase the pork, onion, and garlic.
Of course, you hope they invite you to dinner!!!
