Herself: Stayed quiet. Looked up cookbooks online. Smiled. Ate too much this weekend, but walked 3 hours. Took yesterday off of exercise.
Balance: Exercise. Today.
Caught my attention: The Collectors Weekly page on collecting cookbooks is delightful. Check out the Flickr Photo Pool site on cookbook covers. Left me with a smile. Pages like the The Global Gourmet or Old Cookbooks Lost and Found are fascinating but haven’t been updated lately.
I confess again……I love those fundraising cookbooks. The Greek recipe collection discovered this weekend from Saint Spiridon’s Greek Orthodox Church is one of those. As is the exceptionally nicely bound “Choice Recipes” from the Phoenix Eighth Ward Relief Society that I won’t keep because it isn’t local. I couldn’t leave it sit there on the floor though, could I?
The purple binder bound “Food For The Journey,” is a fiftieth year compilation of goodies from the Clairemont Lutheran Church and was shelved without a look. It sat there for weeks being very purple until I pulled it down yesterday. I wanted something different for dinner, and I opened the book to discover treasured dishes from Norway.
“I want something simple this week,” G said when asked what he would like to eat for dinner this week. “Baked potatoes. A squash. Salad. Small portions.” Those don’t sound very Norwegian to me. Perhaps we didn’t lose enough weight?
Once I get warm and dry after my water workout, I’m sure I’ll find something small, low calorie, and Weight Watcher approved in some slim volume on my shelves.
