I love cookbooks and food magazines.
I have dozens of them. I subscribe to a number of food magazines and I buy cookbooks when they catch my fancy.
The trouble is, I don't always have time to cook from them because there's always a steady stream of magazines and books coming in! New Year's Resolution? To cook from every cookbook I have, and to make at least one thing each month from each food magazine I subscribe to. Yikes. It sounds daunting already and none of my food subscriptions have even come in yet!
On the cookbook front, I am stoked, though! While I was home in the great state of Oklahoma, I bought myself a new cookbook...
I read it the second I got back home and promptly ordered her second cookbook. Lots of what she makes is familiar to me, and lots is what I imagine my life would have been like living with a more steady church goin' family in the 1950's instead of the rock awesome family that I actually lived with. Regardless though, it's absolutely fabulous! Cream of something in lots of the recipes and things that sound amazingly comforting. So yeah for having this resolution BEFORE I bought this cookbook, because I am going to be kicking it southern style. (While lightening what I can for the Weight Watchers part of me, of course!)
We are also in the process of preparing to move and it's been quite daunting. Trying to find a mover that is reasonably priced (I mean, sheesh, we're moving across town not across the country!), reliable, and that will help us do this thing stress-free! I'll keep you updated!
In the meantime, I hope you are enjoying the New Year as much as I am. Happy Days!
