Books, Books and Books!

.....from the library
This one is interesting.  


Who has eaten a peanut butter and pickle sandwich? 










....which means I need to steal some time to read these, or at least flip through some.  And before they are late.







.....another pick up day.




...I am really going to need another "day off" but that is not happening in the next few days I think.  I brought in a boat load of zucchini this morning, so the chopping begins.  I wish I had more interesting news.

Hi Kristina :)) Breakfast Comforts is the cookbook I use the most besides Comfort Food by the same author :) Rick Rodgers has some fantastic recipes I hope you enjoy that one - but you'll need to be on the treadmill more often if you start eating like us lol. The Mystery Writers cookbook looks very interesting! I'm going to look that one up too. Alex found some cookbooks written by Vincent Price, we're just waiting to see if we can find them used because they're quite expensive. Don't you love cookbooks? :)

I lived on grilled peanut butter, mayonnaise and pickle sandwiches when I was a freshman in college. I interchanged the PB with cheese to mix it up a bit. I was a vegetarian back then and they had no Vege alternatives at the dorm. I still love them to this day. You're going to have to take a week off in order to read all those!

Rain, I love borrowing cookbooks from the library. I can typically find a gem in a few of them.

Susan, I am pretty sure some will have to be checked out again, ha ha! I'm always looking for new recipes that use wine or other booze, and also recipe for gift giving ideas.

I have the 100 Days of real food and the Just in Case book which I like. The Mystery writer's Cookbook looks good and the breakfast comforts one. They all look good and I wish our library had books like that but they don't...they are old and behind the times! LOL! So, I have to buy them. Enjoy...if you get time.
