December 2010 Baking

HEY! - you missed some days. Getting a little lax don't you think :)

Wow! That's quite a bit.

It was December so more than a normal month but I still will probably be surprised each month with how much I do bake. I thought the librarians might be less than enthusiastic after all the holiday eating but I was welcomed with open arms yesterday when I went to pick up books before my holds expired. Two Saturdays being closed has gotten me off schedule on book returns and pickups.

I agree, Carol, that I missed a few days. Guess I need to be more diligent in 2011 to bake each day of the month--though where I'd put all the food I have no idea. LOL

Just realized it is 2011. Wow.

You know I'm just kidding. That was quite a feat. You are amazing. I know I couldn't bake that much. I've gotten to where I don't even like to cook that much. What am I going to do with the hundreds of cookbooks I have?????

Library would probably take the donation. Tell them you are retired from cooking. :)

I can't -- just not ready to part with them yet. There seems to be this level of comfort when I look at them -- like maybe the urge to cook will hit me someday and I will need a cookbook -- or a hundred of them.

Cookbooks don't go out of style they just get more interesting with age. The library will always be there if you change your mind. I have a few and I rarely use them--I use the computer and internet more for baking but they are old friends and I like them being here. :)

I just love reading cookbooks and really get a kick out ones that are written by church and school communities. Sometimes I just pull a few and sit and plan imanginery dinner parties. Sometimes I get inspired to do something new. They can tell a lot about culture and people.

No. 28 is our favorite - but then I imagine we would have other favorites if we lived close enough to sample them. Maybe it's a good thing we don't since we might be as big as a house if we were able to sample all your great treats.
