What you leave... I EAT!!

Is it too early to start Christmas shopping?? Because I just think I found a perfect gift.  Steven, Adam if you are reading this (which you're probably not) stop now or.... ruin Christmas!! (you don't want do that, do you?).

One of my favourite stories about Adam (my brother in law) is the first time he had dinner with my parents.  An innocent evening out at a steakhouse and looking to impress, Adam suggested my dad order for him.  Challenge accepted.  My dad ordered the largest steak they had on the menu and Adam ate every. last. bite.  Man, this guy can eat.  Needless to say, I think my dad was impressed.  Welcome to the family, Adam - ha! 

He certainly gives my brother a run for his money.  I hope he's not threatened as the "alpha eater" in the family.  It was an interesting dynamic while we were traveling together in Europe.  You could see Michelle's mental struggle with leftovers while the two guys eyed up her plate. brother? husband? brother? husband...

So, when I came across these on desiretoinspire I knew I just might have to get my hands on one (or two).

  3. These are just perfect! How true about Michelle not knowing who to give her left overs to. I think you should get them that if for sure. It is never too early to start Christmas shopping. I like it when I can get it done early and beat the crowds. This one you don't even have to go to a store. Bonus.

  4. hahaha funny... and no, it's never too early to start Christmas shopping! Since Friday I've already bought three gifts... no word of a lie! (We have a lot of shopping to do and we're going to MA to spend the holidays with B's family, so everyone here needs to be taken care of in advance!)

    Hope you had a great weekend Christine!

  7. Love the plates! The steak story is hilarious!!

    ...reminds me of a story about my BIL...also named Adam! :) He was trying to impress my dad when we were out for Mexican food. He asked for the spiciest dish there and added extra hot sauce. He sweat through the entire meal acting like it was no big deal. Years later, he admitted he thought his mouth was going to burn off of his face. :D
