Expiration dates kinda haunt me sometimes. Especially on gift cards or prizes, or things I think I’ll use later to buy something for someone else. Oops. I MEANT to buy a thank you/housewarming gift for my friends Katie and Peter, after they hosted and drove me all the way up to Davis when I was in California for the Hazon Conference, but the prize money I was going to use to buy their gift with had expired! Seriously, who reads the rules on those things when you have to click away from the “You’ve won, here’s your prize code” page? Ugh.
OK. End rant.
I think every married couple needs this randomly useful beautiful thing:
I know, it’s very Stepford Wife of me to say so, but it is awesome. Its a cake dome AND A punch bowl! We’ve only used it as a cake dome so far, but it’s amazing how some heavy, tempered glass can keep baked goods so happy. Who knew? My mom was more into tupperware than heavy glass, but this can live out on the counter and look like you’ve just won the blue ribbon, not like you’re trying to hide mystery baked goods in the corner under milky plastic.
PS- can someone re-coach me on it’s vs its? I’m getting confused. I guess I should go dig up my favorite grammar book: Eats, Shoots & Leaves
