Yes, my husband wants to write you an actual hand-written thank-you note and put it in the actual mail. The kind with envelopes and stamps.
My husband who has let me handle all the thank-you note writing ever since we got married 19 years ago and received 247 candlesticks, 319 Christmas platters, 462 picture frames, and one really large statue of Santa kneeling before the baby Jesus in his manger.
Yep, that guy.
My mother gave me your cookbook for Christmas and since then, I've made a huge batch of cinnamon rolls (that's when he first asked if he could write you a thank-you note), baked a pan full of comfort meatballs and mashed potatoes ("Now this is COMFORT food!"), and last night my daughter and I made the potato leek pizza ("This is the best pizza I ever had. Ever.")
Now I'm no kitchen lightweight--in fact I like to cook and cook good food often. But your cookbook is clearly speaking his food language. So thanks from me too--you're making me look like a rock star. And I'll go ahead and be honest and say I pretty much like that.
So as soon as I get your address, keep an eye out in your mailbox. There's a thank-you note coming your way. It'll be the envelope covered with splotches of meatball sauce or finger prints in bacon grease or perhaps a smear maple frosting.
