Okay, I have this thing about cookbooks. I love the things. Not the generic microwave cooking or diet cookbooks but generally, I love them all. ( I write in them when I try a recipe in pencil what I think of the recipe and how I would improve it in the future). Here is my cookbook collection now.
Today, while making a visit to the nursery (cabbage plants, brussel sprouts, and herbs) we stopped at a thrift store (The Bearded One cannot pass a thrift store for book hunting). He pointed out several cookbooks and I took this one for 99 cents.
It looked like an interesting addition to the collection. Of course, I frequently get recipes from the internet and, frankly, one of the reasons I post recipes on this blog is so that I can access some of my favorites from wherever I am in the world. Confession. But, a good cookbook is a treasure.
We also went to Trader Joe’s and got a few regular items and a couple of new ones (tempeh and baked asian flavored tofu) to try some new recipes from another new cookbook (ordered to avoid shipping costs on Amazon)…Vegan Fire and Spice. I will let you know how they turn out.
Today was Sunday…meat day. We had Filets au Poivre again. So good. With corn on the cob frozen from last year’s garden and a spinach salad. Nice. The filets were about 3-4 oz. Just enough to be a treat.
