I’m sorta known in my circle for being able to take a bunch of stuff and create a meal. Over the years, I have written out over 100 recipes on request and sent them to friends/family.

This year for Christmas I collected them all, editted and reformatted them, wrote cute intros and sorted them into categories. I then saved them on cute thumb drives and sent them out as gifts.

Two people have already opened their Christmas presents and BOTH have taken the time to email me.

“Thanks, but you know I don’t eat seafood or parsnips.”

And

“Why did you send me recipes for pork, you know I hate it.”

Seriously, was I supposed to memorize everyone’s food fetishes and tailor this? Have I been insensitive or were they?
