Ramekins- The Perfect Mother’s Day Gift

ramekins make a lovely mother's day giftI suggested to my dear husband that ramekins would be a lovely Mother’s Day gift. If I had ramekins, I could finally make, well, whatever it is one bakes up in them. I’d get daring and whip up creme brulee or…something. I can no recall what I longed to bake because he gave them to me for Mother’s Day back in 2005. And look! After I dug them out from a box, I finally removed them from their original packaging.

And I rediscovered my candy thermometer, too. I bought that when I was pregnant with my younger son back in 2000. I recall being at Target, I might have even made a special trip to the store to buy it because I had. To. Have. It. I could no longer live without a candy thermometer.

Yep, it’s still in its original packaging.

I guess it’s time to get cooking.

      Either my ramekins are small or your portions of French onion soup are small. I’d go for that in a small crock. Uh-oh, something else to buy.

    I bought 2 ramekins at Goodwill. I use them for dog food bowls. That’s how I roll.

      Way to be thrifty Rita. Glad you clarified that your dogs are tiny. Or again, maybe my ramekins are just smaller than what people are used to. Hmmm.

    I made French onion soup a few weeks ago and wished I had ramekins. They’re now on my wish list.

    But, I have no idea what a candy thermometer is… Don’t tell me, because it also might end up on my list.

      What did you make your soups in? I guess I’ve got to get French onion on my recipe list. And make you some candy.
