One of DH’s best friends from childhood is getting married soon. The gift we’ve assembled for him and his bride is similar to the one we gave R&H this past summer.
- an enameled cast iron Dutch oven
- a box of kosher salt
- some recipes that use a Dutch oven (like this, this, and this)
- an apron for her (pictured above)
- an apron for him (shown here)
As usual, we are going off-registry with our gift, but I am hoping the couple finds this gift useful. The recipes are ones that we use often, and the Dutch oven is a very versatile and durable cooking tool. I don’t know about the cooking skills of either person in the pair, but I hope this will encourage them to cook for each other, and cook together.
I’ve had a lot of fun compiling the recipes, making the aprons, and building up the package, with the two of them in mind. I hope the personal nature of the present comes through.
