Bits and Pieces

Rosebud has been creating quite a list of things she would like to do. On it she had included "make every recipe in a cookbook."

She chose a cookbook that looked doable for this challenge and started with the plans to make a new recipe once a week. Seeing her enthusiasm for this challenge was contagious, so Sunbeam and I decided to get in on the fun and each choose a cookbook to work our way through as well.

With three of us doing this we get to try new food Monday-Wednesday every week. So far most of the recipes have been good. Some better than others, but still all good, except for one. A bulgur wheat and bean salad with an orange juice and olive oil dressing. It was so awful we don't even want to speak of it in our house again.


Buddy loves playing with balls. If he can find some one to play pitch and catch with him he's happy. Lately though we have been having a hard time finding any of his balls to play with. That changed on Friday when Sunbeam wanted to build a little blanket fort for Buddy and her to play in and she discovered where all his balls had vanished to.


The highlight of our weekend was when some of our friends from Missouri stopped in for a visit. You know you have good friends when you can pick up where you left off several years ago and it's as if there hadn't been all this time between seeing each other last.


If you would like to keep up with me between blog posts, you're welcome to send me a friend request and come join me on Facebook here.

My late husband was the world's pickiest eater. It took me seven years to get him to try tuna-noodle casserole! The Squire will grab a cookbook off the shelf, flip it open and point. "Fix this." Some recipes have been keepers, and other, as you said, are best not spoken of again.

The cookbook project sounds like a fun way to try new food. Are you doing each and every recipe?

A Joyful Chaos said...

Yes, we're making every single recipe in the cookbooks we chose. We started with the first recipe and are working our way though them.

Lady Anne - I'm curious, why doesn't the Squire fix his choice himself? My hubby always says if you can read you can cook.

I like this project. the young woman who worked her way through Julia Child's book blogged about it every day and ended up with a movie. Maybe you could do the same.

I love when LV chooses a recipe he wants me to cook!
