I’m such a dodgy blogger! I’ve looked at the blog for aaaaaaages and keep thinking “yea, I must write another post” then promptly forgot.
Anyhow I’m sat in front of the laptop, typing this out so, it’s a start, no?
I’ve gotten back into my kitchen vibe again and have found some gorgeous books for my cook book collection, most of these happened to be bargain reductions from a local discount store.
Here’s what I’ve picked up lately so you can have a look for yourself
The Commonsense Kitchen (one of the best books I’ve found, more of a lifestyle than a cook book)
The Backyard Homestead
Grandma’s Ways for Modern Days
The Encyclopedia of Country Living (40th Anniversary Edition) (technically not mine yet, but I do have it on pre-order)
Favoured books in my collection are
The Puddin Hill Cookbook
Forgotten Skills Of Cooking
The Everything Meals for a month Cookbook
So that’s the cook book addiction done, next I’ve whizzed through blogs snipping my favourite recipes to try at a later date, oh and eyeballing projects I really really want to have a go at myself, like Making Home Made Vanilla Extract! or how about some furniture rehab?
I’ve even gone and organised my pantry cupboard!
Much to my hubby’s relief the collection of jam jars in the
shed detatched utility room, are no longer redundant, I did tell him I was saving them for a purpose!
I’ve also instigated house rules
so now when one of the sprogs or the hubby “forgets” I just point to the rules that hang in my dining room
So lest I be accused of rambling too long, I will leave the blog as is for now. I will make more of an effort to update things as I go along, can’t make any promises tho!
