With winter still lingering on,
and most days looking like this
I am trying to find things around the house that need my attention.
Because lets face it once it gets nice outside things inside tend to get a bit neglected.
One such spot is the cabinet above my fridge.
I open it up quite frequently to grab a cookbook out.
You know, the one or two books that holds that recipe we tend to use quite frequently.
Lately though I have become quite disgusted with myself for not grabbing more recipes out of that cupboard to try.
After all I have binders and notebooks full of recipes I had copied to try out at a later date.
Oh I am sure some did get prepared for the dinner table at one time or another.
But really how many unmade recipes sit in that spot just waiting to be rediscovered?
These little recipe card boxes are full too!
A couple of boxes were purchased at auctions
already full of recipes from seasoned cooks!
The others have been filled up with recipes shared by friends, family members or from somewhere I had been.
You know, that recipe you just had to have!
Then there are all of my church cookbooks.
These are just a few!
How many tried a true recipes from church potlucks fill these treasured books?
This must have been a good recipe!
I am still hanging onto it since 1999!
(It is actually a recipe I use at about every holiday dinner)
I posted this back in 2012 about the recipe scraps I had inherited from my grandmothers recipe files
The ones she just scribbled down on any handy pieces of paper or napkins!
Sadly since the invention of pinterest most of these recipes have just sat up in the cupboard tucked away.
It is so easy just to sit down at your computer and scroll through picture upon picture of scrumptious looking dishes.
Pin them onto your pinterest board and bam you have your own
virtual on-line cookbook!
Don't get me wrong I love my pinterest recipes.
They have saved me on many of those whats for supper nights.
But what to do with my cabinet FULL of delicious recipes waiting to be made?
I have decided to start the process of going through all of my loose paper recipes.
(It will probably take me until summer!)
I already have a meal plan for the rest of the week!
And the next week!
and the next
and the next......!
What did I get myself into!
