we’ve been married for almost 2 weeks now and although i would prefer no gifts some have been given to us, which is nice….
so i gotta introduce what i received today… a butter curler from hubbys great aunt sofia
anyone else got a "what the" gift and then thought – its so bad, its so out there that i love it

Hehehehe that is priceless. What in the world would anyone need a butter curler for?

ah yes. Curled butter is the best butter! xD It looks kind of like pasta shells. How silly! But I guess she bought it knowing you wouldn’t already have one lol

Wow, that’s interesting! What does one do with a butter curler? I guess it would be neat to have butter curls for a fancy dinner party, but what else would you use it for?

I’ll trade you my crystal seashell bowl for your butter curler! 😉

At one of my showers, I opened a gift from my now husband’s great aunt. Once I took off the wrapping it was an Ann Taylor box and in my head I was like, ‘oh no, did this lady get me clothes?’ Then I opened it and it was the MOST random assortment of bizarre kitchen tools. I was literally holding things up like, ‘ohhh it’s a nice…ummm, utensil!’ The worst part was that no one, not even the gift giver, helped me out on what the stuff was! I wish I could describe it to you all but I got rid of it after my mom couldn’t even identify any possible use for the stuff. There were tiny little cups and things that were like, half spatula, half flat spoon. Nothing was marked or wrapped in original packaging. Maybe she grabbed stuff out of her own drawers?? One thing was in a little baggie that said, ‘The single greatest kitched tool on earth!’ and I still couldn’t figure out what it was. That one I kept though…who would throw out the greatest kitchen tool on earth!?

hehehehe MarzipanMrs, greatest tool on earth…. thats funny!
well my butter curler (after testing it out, it works) went straight to the 2nd draw in the kitchen to join the lemon zester and watermelon hole thingy that i use occasionally
of course – first i told hubby it was a twister toy for us and he went running off to his office screaming… some days im just too evil to him

I actually got two random kitchen gadgets and I have NO IDEA what they are for. One is a tiny little glass jar with a rubber brush, and one is the wee-est little cast iron pan. I’ve been thinking I could probably make a single serving of oeufs en cocotte in the little pan, but isn’t a pan that makes a single serving of food sort of a weird thing to give to a *couple* for their *marriage*?

ha! I laughed so hard when I scrolled down to the picture!! It will be one of those things you will wonder how you ever got by without it!

I used to work for a kitchen store, and we had the absolute strangest items. We sold a coffee filter separator. Does anyone see the need to use a plastic utensil to grasp a paper coffee filter out of the package?
