So far I have entered and catagorized 93 recipes. I already had 35 in my allrecipes "recipe box," but they were in no way organized. I have set up folders within the box and am organizing them as I go. I started with a stack of loose recipes I had put into a large envelope over the last year or so.
We used to save all the food sections from the newspaper and every so often we would go thru them together and collect the recipes we wanted to try. Then I taped them onto sheets of paper, put them in page protectors and into binders.
I am now up to page 33 of 500 pages in the binders. Considering they average three recipes per page, that 1500 recipes! Yikes! I am not adding all of the recipes on each page. Some are just no longer interesting to me.
Craig would want me to transfer every one of them, but I know many are things I will never want to try. He likes to pick out things for me to cook, and many of the recipes are ones he has clipped.
As the chief cook I reserve the right to refuse to try making something. I always called some recipes his "next wife collection."
Speaking of keeping busy:
My mother always said "If you get depressed, scrub the floor." I guess she thought doing housework would cheer a woman up.
I'm no "Suzy homemaker" and I really only clean when company is coming. I've seen homes that are a lot worse, and most that are a lot better.
But, maybe I'll scrub the kitchen floor tomorrow. It could use it. I've got a stack of ironing to do to.
I'm still waiting on my most recent customer to confirm her order, so I have no art work to do. Maybe she will place the order tomorrow.
Maybe I'll try to make homemade Kaiser rolls to go with the Salmon Burgers I have planed for tomorrow nights dinner.
Maybe I'll do both.
Just trying to keep the dreams from creeping in.
I am walking every day.
Total walked = 372.5 miles
