i can relate to a lot of inlaw horror stories and i'm sorry to hear this one! a couple christmases ago i baked a bundt cake and brought it up to our inlaws, i should have been so brave as to cut into it while we were there but it's also a coffee cake that i told her they could eat it in the morning, too. when we said our goodbyes the next day she still didn't cut into it and it wasn't until we got home taht she called to tell me that she finally cut into it and how good it was, i was just glad she liked it, Lol. she's a hard one to please, we're celebrating easter with them this time and i doubt i'll do anything but stop at her local grocery store for something ahead of time!

I never know what to do when people bring food to my house when we have a dinner party.

i never attend a dinner party empty handed. last christmas, DH's boss hosted a dinner party at his house, it was not potluck and there was no expectation that we had to bring something but we did buy wine and i bought flowers. this years party is at the country club.

And seriously, if the letter was legitimate, show of hands for who would bring the damn potatoes in the blue dish?

My in-laws aren't the misspelling type. :)

I am glad that she ultimately liked it. Bundt cake sounds awesome!

You used one of the magic words that trigger a Big, Fat, Greek Wedding moment ;)
