You Will Never Believe What I Am Forced To Do!

My dear great niece just moved into her first apartment. Since I knew she did not have anything, I bought a practically new set of Le Creuset cookware from my aunt who is moving out of town. I thought it would be a good gift for niecy.

Believe it or not, my darling air head niece turned it down! She did not like the color! And horrors, she would have to clean the burned spots on the outside!

My niece told me she wanted the Rachel Ray cookware set with the orange handles because orange was her favorite color.

I am just too through! To add insult to injury, niecy said she wanted Rachel Ray orange knives and utensils.

I am pulling my hair out.............

Bucky, I am devastated. This child is sweet, but absolutely clueless about cookware.

Well, as we say in the country, you can buy some people books, but they're just gonna chew the covers off them.

And Rachel Ray stuff will do just fine for Hamburger Helper and Kraft Mac and Cheese. (And reheating Chinese take-out.)

You know, it takes a lot of people until later in life to get serious about cooking.

Of course, a lot of people also acquire some grace about accepting gifts real early in life, and the others tend not to ever acquire it later.

I think I whispered this over and over to keep from losing my temper.
