My fiancé's mother threw a "get to know my daughter in law to be" tea party for me yesterday. (It was kinda like a bridal shower, but only for her friends and was additional to the lovely and fabulous cosmopolitan bridal shower that my bridesmaids threw for me!) I had a wonderful time and she really did an amazing job. If you'd like, you can see some pictures of the table setting and food she served here:
My future mother in law send out two recipes card with the shower invitations and had all of her friends bring their two favorite recipes which she gathered in a lovely cookbook for me. I was such a great idea and I was really floored by the gesture and all the incredible recipes I received! She also gave me a small, really old and tattered notebook that was a cookbook her mother wrote when she was young for a school project. There is no date on it, but we know it must be at least 60 years old! I can't wait to flip through it and see all the interesting recipes it holds.
Anyway, where I'm getting at with all this is that she also had a few shower games at this tea party get-together. One of them I'd like to share with all of you. She bought a whole bunch of kitchen gadgets and passed them around and we all had to guess what they were, the one with the most right won. I didn't win and got 5 wrong myself but it was such a blast (especially the hilarious answer my clueless but loveable fiancé was making up!) that I figured I should share the fun with you. The best part... I got to keep all the gadgets!
Here are the items. I didn't think to put a ruler next to them for scale when I took the pictures but they all fit on a regular sheet of paper (except the 2nd to last one). Just consider the lack of scale as an added challenge.
See how many you can guess. (And no fair peeking ahead to other people's answers before posting!
1. (Notes: The curved end is slightly serrated)
4. (Notes: If you look closely you'll see that the straight knife end has two blades)
