June – a little bit of this, a little bit of thatJune 2, 2010
I’ve had a hard time trying to decide on a theme for June. There are just so many things I want to try, I can’t seem to lock into one category (note to self: see introductory statement, that’s been the problem all along). Anyway. This evening I was straightening up the pile of cookbooks on the dining room table, and saw that several of them actually belong to a coworker of mrslovey. C loves to go to flea markets, tag sales, estate sales, and antique shops, looking for old cookbooks, especially ones put together by the community. She had scored a few recently, and sent them over for me to poke through.
Bingo!, I said as I organized the pile. A theme, but still some variation! June will feature recipes from community and/or fundraiser cookbooks. You know the ones, put together by local civic groups, churches, really anyone trying to raise money or build community or both. A common feature seems to be the black plastic spiral binding that holds them all together.
Be warned, fair readers, this may not be pretty. I haven’t pre-tested any of these. I have a feeling they’ll either be awesome or awful. I will try to avoid anything with crushed pineapple, but otherwise I’ll mostly be flipping to a page and seeing what it holds. Coworkers in both offices, I’m apologizing in advance, but if I have to suffer for this blog, then so do you.
Oh by the way, C, looks like you won’t be seeing your books until the beginning of July.
