did you mention the fact that you gave her that platter?  i wouldn’t have been able to resist saying something along the lines of:

“oh wow!  this is just like the one i gave you for christmas!  you must have enjoyed it so much you wanted me to have one too.”

ok maybe not the last part but i would have definitely let her know i knew.

@Sparklydelitebride:  If it was me that she was treating so horrible I would have called her out on the regift. Sorry you are having such a rough time with FMIL. I hope it gets better.

It sounds like you handled the situation very well! 

I can relate a bit. Sometimes my MIL can drive me crazy with all of her opinions and suggestions. To keep peace I keep quiet and then vent to DH. For us it’s the cultural difference that prevents me from speaking up, so DH always has to put in my two cents. If I would to do so, it would be horribly disrecpectful. I found that one out the hard way.

“I would be embarassed to have paid money for the dessert you served.” 

Hmmm

“Really? I would be embarrassed to complain to my hostess about her hospitality.”

I know you couldn’t have said that, but WOW that lady has some nerve.

Whoa–FI needs to tell her to stop verbally abusing you. It isn’t okay for her to treat you that way! It sounds like you were a lovely host and way more gracious than most people (including me) would be!
