The Husband Cooks Wednesdays

by Cate on March 9, 2006

First things first. If you checked out the ARF/5-A-Day round-up from yesterday, go back and check it out again. I inadvertently missed two valuable contributors and have gone back and added them in … wanted to make sure you didn’t miss them. ;) And an honorable mention goes to Stephanie’s take on ARF/5-A-Day. You can check out her creativity here.

Our little munchkin had a babysitter tonight, so The Husband and I ran out for a quick bite to eat, ending up at Fatburger. I had a major craving for grilled chicken tonight, and got my fix there. I haven’t had their Grilled Chicken Sandwich before, but did tonight, and it was delicious. Slightly charred, terrifically juicy and gone within minutes. ;) Not haute cuisine by far, but it fit the bill for what we were looking for tonight.

Before heading home, The Husband dropped me off at the front of the bookstore so I could make a quick dash to check out the magazines. No Donna Hay yet (!), but there were more imports – whoo-hoo! Also picked up the new issue of Paula Deen’s magazine, and Better Homes and Garden’s “special interest publication,” Simply Perfect Italian. There are few things I splurge on, but magazines are definitely one of them; but to the opposite extreme, I’ve actually begun whittling down my cookbook collection (I know! gasp!) a bit and have been selling some on Amazon. Although I’m still collecting cookbooks, I decided to do a little purging to spend more time concentrating on my truly favorite ones.

OK folks, all for tonight. Tune in tomorrow for the next nod for New (to Me) Blogger on the Block Thursday and Rediscovering My Library. Until then… have a good one.

A year ago today … my Ode to Quiznos and House Fried Rice.

I’m a sucker for cooking magazines too. Since I have no room for more cookbooks, this is the perfect addition.

Paula Deen has her own magazine? Wow, I didn’t know that. I don’t think they sell it around here.

How is Delicious (magazine)? I had no idea there was a paula deen magazine. Is it good? She cooks with way too much fat/butter for me but I LOVE her. Wish she was my grandma!

Gourmetish – I love, love, love delicious. magazine and never fail to find a whole bunch of recipes to try out. As far as Paula Deen, yup, her recipes are not everyday food here, that’s for sure … but for that once-in-a-while indulgence… ;)

As I get most of my recipes from magazines, the internet (and lovely blogs like yours), I have been seriously thinning my cookbook collection. Have you had any luck on Amazon?

Thanks for stopping by! I’ve had great success selling my books on Amazon and MUCH prefer them to Ebay (though I do get other things on Ebay). Happy to answer any questions you may have – just drop me a line. Soon I’ll be adding a link here to everyone can see which cookbooks I’m selling. Hope this helps!
