I am packing up my apartment, since I am moving soon. And today I decided to pack my cookbooks. I am the first to admit that I am lousy at using cookbooks.
Primarly because I don’t really have space for them in my kitchen, so they are in the bookshelf in the main room, and… I forget to look in them when I cook and bake things.
The kitchen in my new apartment has bookshelves in the kitchen, so the cookbooks is going there. Hopefully I’ll be better at using them. 🙂
Anyway. I decided to leaf through one of the cookbooks that mum gave me years ago, since I like the author’s recipes.
And… I happened to stumble on a recipe where I had all the ingredients in the fridge.
So I had tasty mushroom pasta for lunch. (I did replace the cream with creme fraiche, since I had an opened beaker in the fridge and added some soy and white wine.)
Standing there, cooking and deciding to add a splash of this and splash of that and sprinkle of herbs and some salt, filled me with joy. Which.. was a good reminder for me to have this week.
Anyway. Now I am going to write, and then I am going to do laundry and then I am going to figure out what to make for dinner.
