2013 Christmas Baskets!


Another Christmas, and another edition of the gift all adults wish for (They do. Trust me on this.) — every year, my parents assemble and throw a blanket over large [laundry baskets / plastic storage bins] full of groceries and household goods. There are, as usual, too many for me to sit and draw a list of — but please enjoy the wide variety of items both gourmet and hilarious, including:

  • 15 cans of broth
  • snacks
  • smoked salmon
  • nutritional yeast
  • bag of sugar
  • sprats in tomato sauce
  • 2 cans of vienna sausages
  • tea bags
  • coffee
  • dried bonito flakes (cat treat)
  • 9 gravy packets
  • tooth flossers
  • light bulbs
  • dishwasher tablets
  • bag of razors

Tabling each item and photographing the lot was only the first step of this multi-prong process. There will be no recipe again today, since I’ll be spending the morning figuring out where to put everything. And probably still eating leftovers.

Happy New Year!
