This is my cookbook cabinet.
If you click on this one, you may be able to read the book titles better (if you care to). On the middle shelf, the healthy books are on the left and regular books on the right.
I have a few favorites that I would keep if I absolutely had to get rid of some…
But this, my friends, is my treasure. I’m serious! I picked this up on a whim back in about 1990, and it has become my absolute favorite. There are so many good recipes in here, and it’s cute and funny. It has also become well-worn and I’ve made handwritten notes in it. That’s what will make it a true treasure some day for my sons or their wives or maybe some stranger who finds it in a junk shop. I love finding cookbooks with handwritten notes in them where you can tell they’ve been used over and over again. I don’t even know if it’s available anymore, but if you see it, I’d buy it up if you cook. Well, let me just go do the work for you…
Oh my gosh…HERE it is used starting at 9 cents! Shipping is $3.99. Well worth it, people! There are nine used ones for sale. I should get a cut for that plug. What would that be? 2 cents? LOL.
This is a magazine I bought back in the fall of 2009. I will be using the 3-week diet plan as a jump-start when I get my ass in gear and begin. I just read it a couple of weeks ago. It’s been sitting at my bedside just waiting for me to get the guts to pick it up. I just haven’t been able to face another “diet” and/or exercise plan for a very long time.
There’s a 2-year story behind that which I mentioned minimally on my blog probably starting in 2007 somewhere. I don’t remember exactly. Successful Lap Band surgery, followed by complications (caused by carelessness and errors of the medical staff responsible for filling the band), followed by removal and another weight-loss surgery. Ugh. It sucked. I hate talking about it. I should have sued. It would have been an easy win that would probably have been settled out-of-court, but I didn’t have the energy to pursue it.
I just noticed this morning that this is the bookmark I’m using in that magazine. It made me laugh.
The trip to IKEA yesterday turned into a trip to The Container Store instead. No dish drainer was purchased, but we did leave there with a giant bag of cool crap. That’s a fun store if you don’t go too often.
So it’s 1:10 PM and I’ve been putting off work all day. I just don’t wanna so I’m not gonna. My boss is really cool and lets me be off pretty much whenever I want. Hee-hee. I’m still in my pajamas. I guess I should go and at least brush my hair and teeth. Hygiene is a pain in the ass. LOL.
