I have a bit of an obsessive personality. It comes out in strange ways, at strange time, with strange things. Never has it come out in dieting and exercising (sigh), but in things like collecting cookbooks (or skeleton keys or clocks).
See this picture? That's the top of my kitchen book shelf. There are 6 shelves on it and they are all full. Most of my cookbooks are stored here, but not all of my cookbooks are.
I love having all my cookbooks at my finger tips.
I want my friends to think ---WOW!
But most of them think WTH?
I want them to think--that is so cool, she has a lovely collection of cookbooks.
But most of them think--no sane person needs that many cookbooks.
We have had two of our grandchildren for a week, (I took the train with them last weekend) and today we drove 3 hours to meet their dad, who also drove over 3 hours for the trade-off.
On the drive, I took some cookbooks with me and started to bookmark things I wanted to make.
BECAUSE, I tend to buy a cookbook, read it and put it on the shelf never to be looked at again. Well, I look at them all the time, because I love them, but I don't always use them like I should. I am thinking the colorful little page makers will call out to me each week as I'm making my menu.
I had 6 hours in a car and it just seemed like a good idea at the time. I plan on going thru every cookbook and marking things I want to make. (see? a bit obsessive, as I have over 200 cookbooks)
Rich (the Handyman) says I will die before I get them all made, OR before I read all the books I want to read-- but I am hopeful And what is life without hope?
That's what I did today. I lead an exciting life.
Weekend Cooking is open to anyone who has any kind of food-related post to share: Book (novel, nonfiction) reviews, cookbook reviews, movie reviews, recipes, random thoughts, gadgets, quotations, photographs.
She says random thoughts. See? Right there above. Random thoughts.
That's what this is: a Weekend Cooking random thought.
Oh...and PS: I found Ginger Beer here in our little town. I've been looking for Ginger Beer for a few months now.
I want to try a "Dark and Stormy" (dark rum, ginger beer and lime)
just because I can.
