Journaling:
i collect cookbooks. i enjoy reading them as much as any good novel. i love looking at the photos of the delicious offerings and beautiful table settings. but i rarely make any of the recipes included in these books. instead i find myself going back to the old recipe tin my mother had for over sixty years filled with family favorites. i love that i can see both of my grandmothers’ as well as my mother’s handwriting. i love that there are recipes cut from newspapers, magazines and cake boxes scotch taped to the cards; the tape now yellowed and brittle. i love that there are recipes from friends on cards labeled, “from the kitchen of”. it reminds me of a time in life when wondering what to prepare for dinner that night meant you thumbed through your recipe tin rather than google “dinner ideas” or use speed dial to call for pizza delivery. not that i haven’t done both. which makes me wonder, what are we having for dinner tonight?
