A New Home for Cookbooks

I LOVE collecting cookbooks. They are my prized possessions. I have well over 650 cookbooks and the number is always growing. And all of you are beginning to recognize how much I love cookbooks too. A lot of you have realized my house is the house where cookbooks end up when needing a new home. People are always giving me either new books or books that they no longer need or have room for. SWEET! You can NEVER have enough cookbooks.

For those of you who follow Julia at https://retirementrvdream.com/ you know she and her husband Bruce are doing some serious downsizing, getting ready for their new life on the road. The other day, Julia brought over a whole bunch of cookbooks that she will no longer have room for in the RV. I have gladly accepted them and rehomed them. They will take a place of honor on the library shelves. Anyone that finds themselves in need of “rehoming” their cookbooks, please know that I will always lovingly adopt them and take good care of them. They will become part of the family. πŸ™‚

Usually when I get new cookbooks, I just have to make something from them IMMEDIATELY. This time, however, I will have to wait a bit. Larry is out of town at the moment, so I am not cooking anything. He comes home tomorrow night. But then I am taking off for a few days on Thursday and Larry will be home, with the “kids”. I was supposed to be with Larry in Las Vegas right now, but we had a last minute conflict of time from our pet sitter, so I stayed home. I will be heading up to Idaho to visit with some friends, leaving Thursday. I promise you though, it will be pleasure mixed with “work”. There will be some fun things coming your way from my time in Idaho once I return home. You’ll just have to wait and see what I come up with and bring back. πŸ™‚

Stay safe and stay well Everyone, and stay tuned. ‘Til next time.

      1. That’s another trait we share, darling! 😻 I still have my mom’s cookbook published before Stalin died. The first chapter opens with: “If you have unexpected guests, don’t worry. Open your zinc box and take our a jar of caviar.” As you would imagine, it never fasils to elicit general hilarity when I show it to guests.
