Just a Quickie

by Cate on July 12, 2005

A tiring evening, so I’m going to make this a quick one tonight.

The Husband made dinner tonight in an attempt to avoid pot pie (he hates ’em, though I can’t figure out why!). He made a pasta with red sauce and sausage. Yummy, and I didn’t have to lift a finger.

Kitchen use is a bit limited these days ’cause we have a carpenter and his assorted tools all over … the kitchen … the dining room … the backyard. Every where I look, there’s more tools, ladders, saws, etc. Not complaining, of course, since it’s certainly benefitting me in the long run, but geesh, how many tools does one person need?

I promised a quick recap on my cookbook bargains this weekend. Between two bargain stores, I did really well, 5 cookbooks for under $25 total. I got:

Tarts with Tops on (the aforemented pot pie-hating Husband is gonna love this one!)
The Best of Gourmet 2000 ($4!!!)
Smith & Hawken’s Gardeners’ Community Cookbook (another $4 steal!)
Outdoor Food
Celebrations Italian Style by Mary Ann Esposito (she had a long running PBS cooking show, and being part Italian, I’m looking forward to trying out these recipes)

OK, all for tonight. Time to get the house back in some sort of order for tomorrow. Tomorrow night, I’m planning on making something for Nicholas to bring into school on Wednesday … and, of course, Wednesday is also my turn to bring in the office lunch. Tune in to find out what’s on tap. Until then…

I get so tempted to get more cookbooks when I read all the good stuff you get! I gotta check out my local used book store soon – have some books to trade in + a credit already, and goodness knows what treasures may be waiting for me!

And thanks for the link to my blog – although the name is 5 recipes a week, not day. Goodness knows more than 2 recipes starts to hit my limit – 5 would do me in!
