Happy Birthday to Me

Today is my 21st birthday! It's not as exciting as if I were an American (I've been legally drinking in Canada for two years now), although I will definitely appreciate being able to have a drink with dinner when I go to the States from now on.

It's been a great birthday so far for my foodie side. My boyfriend has given me my gifts already. He bought me a kitchen scale, a bamboo cutting board, and a heavy duty stainless steel stock pot. I can now make British recipes with better accuracy, throw out my crappy, distorted Ikea cutting boards, and make recipes that call for a heavy bottomed saucepan! Talk about exciting news.


As you can see, I'm already putting the cutting board to good use.

To me, food-related gifts from him are actually quite romantic. When we lived together, he would tease me about the kitchen gadgets I was always bringing home. He insists I have way too much kitchen stuff. But he also told me that he likes to buy it for me anyway because cooking makes me so happy, and he knows that any kitchen thing he gets me is going to be well-used. So even though someday our cupboards will be bursting at the seams and he won't be able to open a drawer without a lemon zester, melon baller, or piping bag jumping out, he buys it anyway because he just likes to see me happy. Is that awesome or what?

Photos of all of the gifts after the jump, if you're interested.

Happy Birthday! I was wondering if you liked getting those kinds of items for a gift. My hubby would get hit with a cutting board if he bought me cookware for my birthday. LOL

Thanks everyone!

And Karen: I really do like those gifts. I have had a few people ask me if I was upset, but they're all things I really wanted and, like I said, it's what I find romantic. Although if he bought me a vacuum cleaner, I may have been upset!
