Bringing out the Best Cookware

My brother's girlfriend and her family are coming over to visit us tonight. It is her parent's first visit to our home and my mother wanted to make a good impression. My mother will be making dinner for everyone and of course, she had instructed that only our best cookware is allowed in the dining room.

My husband loves good coffee. Correction, make that "addicted to good coffee"! He simply couldn't resist the smell and taste of it. And if you ask him, he will happily launch into a detail explanation about the types of coffee and how they should be brewed.

And so, that is why we got him the Delonghi espresso machine as a Father's Day's gift in advance. You should see the transformation in him in the mornings. Usually, when he wakes up in the morning to wash and prepare himself for work, he has this daze look as if he is still not awake yet.
