DH gave me lots of kitchen stuff - he loves to benefit from my having these tools A Le Creuset tagine and Moroccan cookbook, a Henckels santoku knife, and The America's Test Kitchen Family Cookbook: Featuring More Than 1,200 Kitchen-Tested Recipes. I may never need another cookbook (Not!)

A bottle of olive oil/balsamic/herb dipping oil from my sister, gift basket of candies and cookies from my uncle, gift basket of coffees and cookies and a Ladder-Ball game (?!?) from my in-laws, gift certificate from my brother-in-law. A very nice Christmas this year.

DH always prefers to buy his own Christmas gifts, so he bought himself a new tool cabinet for the shop and a food saver, which is for both of us.
He gave me a lovely pair of earrings and cash to spend however I like.
My daughter gave me some Pampered Chef goodies...a stone bar pan, Rachel Ray silicone cooking utensils with a notch in the handle so they'll hang on the cooking pot, and a cool combination mitt/towel thing for taking hot dishes out of the oven.
We're not finished yet...our other daughter and family are coming tomorrow.
