We all want our loved ones to know how special they are to us.
My mother-in-law is nice at times, but is hardly the warm and fuzzy type. The holidays are approaching and I wish I could soften her up so she doesn’t feel like ice queen at the dinner table. Any ideas?
Yes! I recommend, in preparation for the holidays, you call your mother-in-law and ask her for a holiday recipe that was your husband’s favorite when he was a child or teenager. You have a choice. You can ask her for the recipe for you to make or you can take the extra step (take a deep breath) and ask her to show you how to make it.
This will be a win-win for everyone. Your mother-in-law will be flattered you asked her for the recipe or to make it with you, you will feel good about making the kind gesture, and your husband will be thrilled to eat one of his favorites.
