Old Man Winter is rearing his head this year in Nova Scotia. Compared to our very mild winter last year, we are having an old fashion cold blustery winter this year. Over night tonight we are expecting our second blizzard in three weeks. Some of us are happier about this, than others… 😉
About 10 years ago, I began putting together a cookbook for each of our children. When I took note of a recipe that seemed popular, or one they requested, I made copies of it and put it in the books. I included a picture with any I could, because I love cookbooks with pictures. I knew these cookbooks would be special to them when the time came that they left to establish their own homes. But I had many, many, years yet to work on these books…loads and loads of time.
You will never believe this… Because I certainly don’t… The first cookbook leaves the nest THIS WEEK!
How. Did. That. Happen.
I bought 3 5×7 binders
and some 5×7 page sleeves.
I print all the recipes off
and slip them into the sleeves.
If they are blessed with children
they will be able to use the same play dough recipe
that I always made them, and show their children
a picture of their own play dough toys!
Here is the first cookbook
packed in a basket ready to be used
in it’s new home.
Of course it leaves with much love
and my willingness to help
create any recipes…anytime!
