The day I opened that present: I had to go pick up yet ANOTHER package at the post office (someone should really invent some sort of service that delivers packages TO YOUR HOUSE....wait...) and then the package did not contain the oil I was waiting for that I was hoping would help my arm stop hurting. To stop the downward spiral of despair, I decided I would stop for my favorite pork fried rice (conveniently, the fried rice place is right next to the post office!), but when I checked my wallet, I didn't have enough cash. Baby hadn't taken a nap that day and was GRUMPY, I received a load of the "look how perfect our family is!" Christmas cards, and it was day 29 of my cycle, which is always enough to make me quake with fright. It was the PERFECT day for Ghirardelli Dark Chocolate & Sea Salt With Caramel, is what I'm saying.

A Lovely, Lovely Person* sent this CDPackage to me and was worried that I would think less of it because of the non-froofy wrapping. She need not have worried!

I used the BBQ sauce to marinate and cook some chicken; it was delicious =)!

They IMMEDIATELY grabbed the recipe magazine and started plotting which delicious things they wanted to make.
*I will be keeping Crappy Day Present senders anonymous so that the sender doesn't have to worry that Person Q is going to see what they (the sender) sent me and possibly feel bad that their (Person Q's) package was not as fabulous as mine ;-). But if you
