Sometimes after a really busy month (I think I now look at my life in terms of blog months) I wonder how I can manage my time better. There is still so much I want to do each month and I never achieve everything I want to achieve. Then I remember why it’s all so manic……..3 young children!
I would like to think/hope there are a few of you out there who feel the same way. Life is full on and I can’t remember the last time I actually sat and vegged in front of the TV. Yes, I can. It happened all the time pre-blog!
So, every now and then I breathe a welcome sigh of relief. Which is exactly what I did when I read Dom at Belleau Kitchen’s latest RANDOM RECIPE CHALLENGE. An inspired idea and one that does not involve cooking but snapping our varying collections of cook books. I can do this and it won’t take me a whole evening!
I love blogging, don’t get me wrong. It’s just that the last week of the month comes around and I suddenly realise there are lots of recipes I have simply run out of time to make. With this “something a little different” theme, I can write and snap and post within an hour. So, maybe now I will just go off and rustle up an amazing meal and not photograph it…….just eat and enjoy!
Thanks Dom, as a challenge, I can’t think of anything I would rather do than to rifle through other blogger’s cook books. My collection has been building ever since my first teen purchase of May Berry’s “Ultimate Cake Book “. But, I have a particular love of retro cookbooks at the moment. Food styling in past decades fascinates me.
I have made a gallery of photos, due to my cook books being in 4 parts of my kitchen. Plus, I had to add in my latest purchase. Today, I found 4 books (all good,2 retro) for a fiver. I should not be allowed into charity shops. If I had my way, I could easily buy 4 a day!
