Recipe books and other random things
Are you like me and have piles of recipes that you have cut out of magazines or printed? I have been building a collection for many years and most I have never used. So over the last few weekends I went through all the magazines I had, cut out those recipes that I would make, tossed out the magazines and them sorted through the pile of recipes.
Most recipes that I had been collecting also went into the bin. What I was left with were those I would make. I bought an art book and made myself a recipe book (see below). Nothing complicated - the front is for savory recipes and the back is for sweet. I even managed to decorate the front page!! Being a spiral book, it will be easy to use in the kitchen when I am cooking.
For those recipes that I use from the net, I will print and place into my book. The number of times I find a really great recipe and then forget where I found it can be so annoying, this way I will have a copy of it.
I have been playing around with craft ideas and this is one of them. A cute way of make little messages to give to people. I would like to do bible texts but I still working out the best way to glue and vanish them onto the mini canvas.
Just a couple of photos of Ruby relaxing, not looking particularly ladylike with her legs all over the place. But she was very happy:) You wouldn't believe from these photos that she is black as coal in normal light, until I take her photo then she has red bits in her fur.
May you all have a wonderful blessed weekend.
I plan to spend mine indoors as it is very cold and windy outside.
Time for lunch so I will farewell you for the moment.
I think I will have for a toasted cheese (Eden) and mayonnaise sandwich made with homemade bread
+ a mug of Jasmine tea.
A mother's love is a blessing that blooms forever
