Gifts for kids:
Iwako erasers – take them to dinner with friends who have kids. They’ll love you.
Glow in the dark scorpion necklace. This isn’t a joke. Kid-tested.
Maldon salt pinch tins – my foodie aunt says it’s okay to take these to restaurants. Smoked ones too!
Various colors Expo markers at Target! $5.09 a pack.
The Wednesday Chef and her soon to be released German Baking Book.
Overnight sourdough waffles – you can buy a sourdough starter from the King Arthur site or just ask a friend who uses it for a little bit to get started. This recipe is one I make over and over. Sourdough isn’t much work and is totally worth it.
