Successful Xmas Eve Scalloped Potatoes Update form COCO

FIRST, I WANT TO THANK EVERYONE WHO HELPED ME ON TALK. I NEVER REALIZED THERE WAS SO MUCH TO LEARN ABOUT THE ART OF MAKING GREAT SCALLOPED-
AU GRATIN POTATOES. I MADE OVER TEN DIFFERENT RECIPES, ALL SENT FROM YOU . I CAN TELL YOU THEY WERE ALL YUMMY, AND WAS HARD TO CHOOSE THE PERFECT ONE. I DECIDED TO PREPARE THE ONE THAT MOST WAS LIKE THE WIFE IN LAW'S. IT WAS THE FIRST FRENCH RECIPE THAT CHEFROBERT GAVE ME, I DID USE RUSSETS/WHOLE MILK AND HEAVY CREAM/NUTMEG/
GRYUYERE CHEESE/GARLIC RUBBED ON DISH. THESE INGREDIENTS ALL VARIED WITH ALL THE RECIPES YOU SENT IN AND EVERYONES VARIETY WAS YUMMY. I HAD A BALL MAKING AND TESTING ALL THE BEST OF THE BEST. EVERYONE LOVED THE RECIPE AND OF COURSE MY DAUGHTERS FUSSED OVER THE YUMMY TASTE, AND WE ALL LAUGHED. THE WIFE IN LAW MENTIONED THE RECIPE WAS LIKE HERS, BUT NOT QUITE AS RICH, SHE HAD TO SAY SOMETHING, WE IGNORED HER, SHE IS JUST A BITCH. I THINK HER'S WAS THE JULIA CHILDS RECIPE. TO BE NICE AND SHOW GARVEY I REALLY AM NOT A BAD W-I-L, I GAVE THE W-I-L A COPY OF THE FAMILY COOKBOOK AND I PUT A BLANK PAGE WITH HEADING BEST SCALLOPED POTATO RECIPE WITH HER NAME ON IT, AND TOLD HER WE WOULD LOVE HER RECIPE TO BE IN OUR FAMILY BOOK AND ANY OTHER SPECIAL RECIPE IS WELCOMED. I THINK SHE APPRECIATED THE INVITE AND WILL COME AROUND, ESPECIALLY NOW THAT SHE HAS FOUND OUT THAT, HEY WE CAN GET ALONG WITHOUT HER SELFISH RECIPES. SO HOPEFULLY, NOW GOD WON'T PUNISH ME FOR BEING A BRAT AND WE ALL HAD A HAPPY CHRISTMAS. THANKS AGAIN,FOR ALL THE FUN. I AM IN SUNNY YUMA AZ ABOUT TO GO FISHING. YOU ALL HAVE A HAPPY NEW YEAR AND HAPPY COOKING TO YOU ALL. COCO
