I had a completely different post written out. And then blogger decided that someone else was editing my blog at the same time as me (or so they said) and it went into cyberspace!!!! Let's just say I wasn't particularly happy since it was my part 2 post to my road trip with lots and lots of pictures.......................... Anyway, onto today's post! Said in my most cheerful voice!!
Do you have a cookbook collection? I should have taken a picture of all my cookbooks at the end of my island. I have a a lot. But I stacked these to show you the array of cookbooks I have. Yet, when I'm going to make something I have never made before, I always consult with Old Faithful. Which would be my old tattered copy of The Complete Family Cookbook. There are a few reasons that I do this. For starters, it never has those exotic have-to-run-to-the-store ingredients when it's 3pm and snowing 2 inches a minute out. It always has down home recipes whatever they are that everyone in my family seems to like. Tonight I made Chili con carne with homemade cornbread and a salad. Perfect meal for such a snowy day! And Old Faithful did not disappoint!!!
