    Part 1 of gift volley may have arrived today I think!

    DIRECT HIT!
    Part one arrived today.

    I don't quite know what it is, and as mentioned upthread FrauCron is very serious about the whole "no opening of gifts until the big day" but I think she'll probably aquiece when all parts have arrived.

    For now though, it's under the Christmas lamp (we don't have a tree, so the gifts are going at the base of the floor lamp in the sitting room) and waiting for its friend.

    SECOND STRIKE!

    So part two has made it! I know exactly what this is, and you must have known how competitive Fraucron is because this will be right up her alley :)
    I'll try and talk her into opening the both of them so we can have a few games before she goes home (and also, so I can post pics).

    Thanks again @Ilpala for a very classy combo of presents!

    i accidentally posted this in the G&T secret santa thread because I'm an idiot

    the other day i was leaving for work and noticed a package that had been by the door presumably for a couple days but i missed it because i thought it was all stuff for my roommates

    but it wasn't it was for me and it was from Knitdan

    Knitdan got me a knitcap and some of those classic books that I've never read and also some cool coasters and tissue paper for the cat oh and also a magnet for the flag of Cascadia long live Cascadia

    ua5no3qj5cer.jpg

    this is good and reading books helps me feel smart, thanks knitdan

    Gift get!

    The highly classy @Elldren has gifted me with mighty spirits, which I intend to enjoy liberally and in good company. Thank you!

    I think Pringles original intention was to make tennis balls... but on the day the rubber was supposed to show up a truckload of potatoes came. Pringles is a laid-back company, so they just said, "Fuck it, cut em up!".

    Also, I made chili (mostly) per the recipe in the Texas cookbook!

    Initial tomatos, onions, garlic, and beef:

    After adding stock, more seasonings, and corn flour and reducing a bit:

    It was almost done... but it needed one more thing.

    A single red bean, to (spiritually) season it with purist tears.

    @HerrCron that was a stupidly large image. I’ve resized it for you but if this wasn’t the Santa thread and a source of good cheer I’d have infracted you and felt good doing it.

    Check your image sizes, guys.

    I have received a gift!

    The tag says that it's only the first, but possibly the tastiest... and this is a definite truth. Check it out!

    u4g7Eddl.jpg

    This is one of those cookbooks that your aunt Bessie contributed to back in the 50s and it is by turns amazing and terrifying. Tons of great obscure cajun stuff to try in it, tons of stuff that reads like a technical challenge - "first, make a roux". Some stuff that sounds like Bessie was clearly phoning it in... there's a recipe in here for "A La Mode", and it is literally:

    Ingredients: brownies, vanilla icecream, whipped cream
    Directions: cut up the brownies and layer them in a glass with the icecream. Put whipped cream on top and eat.

    Next to that is an extensive & complex recipe for a crazy good sounding strawberry cake I've never even heard of!
    I flipped to the etouffee recipe (of course there is one) and no fucking okra so I know this thing is legit.

    :) :) :) :)

    Look at this recipe for Rum pie. No, not rum raisin... just fkin Rum.

    RS3u8cel.jpg


    Yes.


    Thank you!! Can't wait to see what else arrives!

    Hits away! It occurred to me I may have not added my name to certain gifts - hopefully when they all arrive (today), everything should be made clear.

    I think Pringles original intention was to make tennis balls... but on the day the rubber was supposed to show up a truckload of potatoes came. Pringles is a laid-back company, so they just said, "Fuck it, cut em up!".

    GIFT GET!

    @3lwap0 thank you so much!

    octdpzoicc43.jpg

    Now I have an entire library of produce to plant when I get the land for my compound next year, plus wildflowers to attract bees, and also add taste to my mead.

    And when I need some protein to go with the veggies I'll just break out that awesome fly fishing rig and go catch a delicious bass, or trout, or bream, or really anything that is willing to be caught.

    Thanks again! This was perfect.

    Note to my Santee: Your gift(s) will be going out this Saturday but you'll have them by the end of next week.

    Delayed hit (I think!). Had a package sitting on my deck this morning and fear it was probably there all weekend. Whoops! In my defence my deck is an icy deathtrap at the moment so I've been avoiding it as much as possible. Look at these beauts...

    w61kgjbdhigj.jpg

    I'm only skeptical of this being from my Santa because I think I've only mentioned RDJ a total of one times on these boards, in spite of being a huge fan! (Fun fact, I was listening to Lie, Cheat, Steal while opening the package??) So either that is some next-level stalking, or @Tav just decided to spread the gift of RTJ this holiday season. (Always give the gift of RTJ all seasons). Thanks a bunch!! Love it! It's a Christmas Fucking Miracle! (KoRn joke)

    OH GOSH DARN IT! I totally missed this thread this year! UGH! Can someone shoot me a reminder next year? Pretty please?! :)

    But I found my way back here because my Facebook page popped up a photo from last year. After tracking down where it came from, I ended up here. One of the many gifts my 2017 secret santa @Atomika sent me was a Star Wars robe that my daughter wears all the time. Here is the 1 year before and after shots:

    Before:
    4mjwm3g0o8jj.jpg

    After:
    7rb7xfzpgdsi.jpg

    Such a great fit! We make her wear when she wants to play in the attached sun room, since it gets pretty cold in there at night. Once she outgrows it, it'll move on to our newest little one. His name is Luke, so the gift is even more fitting.

    Thanks again @Atomika and I'll try to remember to join you all in 2019!

    Minding my own business today, and suddenly my dogs are barking and barking and then there is a doorbell. By the time I get to open the door, only a brown box remains at my doorstep. Inside there are multiple wrapped items!

    And a message on one:

    uiEG15I.jpg

    Well, I’m always one to follow directions, so here we go!

    Definitely not the worst gift ever. I love socks! Like, I really do. And these ones are nice and soft.

    More? Yes more.
    With the help of my model, who quickly claimed this one as her own:

    Very cute, going over well with the older kid so far!

    A brain game to pass the time is always a good choice:
    NjPOMH1.jpg

    And it is monstrously difficult it seems. I’ll be stuck trying to get it right in between diaper changes.

    Oh wait for it. There is most definitely more. Good god is there more.
    WHAAAAAAAT ISSSSS HAPPPPENNINGGGG?

    Okay okay
    C4YZH8q.jpg

    Too many games. That’s like 2000 hours of gameplay right there, assuming I don’t fall too far into the abyss of Minecraft. My daughter might though as she claimed that one too already. Wow. Thank you so much!

    I have a feeling I know who the culprit is based on return address name but I can’t be sure, so Santa, please reveal yourself so I can slather you with praise.

    It’s all very awesome and classy! Great job Santa!
