June – a little bit of this, a little bit of that

June 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.
