Unique Kitchen-Warming Gift: Beef Bolognese!
Our friends showed up at our front door with a large, heaping grocery bag.
Happy Kitchen Housewarming! they said.
I love surprises like this!
Inside the bag were ingredients like fresh ground beef, fresh pasta, ungrated parmesan cheese, pancetta, and red wine – along with a copy of the recipe using all of these food items to make Beef Bolognese Sauce!
Absolutley creative and thoughtful!
A few days later our family enjoyed a meal of Beef Bolognese Sauce with Pancetta and Red Wine. Utterly delicious.
Super duper yummy. (I added my frozen roasted tomatoes!)
And it created a memorable time in the kitchen for Paul and me making the meal together. (And it made me think of Julie and Julia!)
It was also a reminder for our family of good friends.
I’m not sure I’ve taken a Kitchen-Warming gift to anyone. But now that I’ve experienced the element of surprise and the fun involved, I’m going to keep this idea in mind.
Besides, I love taking surprise gifts to others.
When is the last time you thought of something creative to give to a friend?
(Thank you Stephen and Judy, for this gift!)
