It was my mom’s birthday, so we visited her for dinner. So much food!
I gifted her a vegetarian cook book for ideas and “Salt Sugar Fat: How the Food Giants Hooked Us” by Michael Moss. I hope she liked her present.
I feel awkward about gifting books. It’s a gift that I always like to receive, but lately I have the feeling that others don’t really appreciate getting books as a gift that much, but maybe my gut feeling is lying to me? I’m usually terrible at choosing gifts, so I always worry a lot about whether people actually like my gift or not. I fear they are simply making a good face out of politeness.
