I rarely have time to look upstairs
I can sometimes sneak in a few minutes
to quickly browse the new non-fiction shelves.
When I saw the title, Relaxed Cooking with Curtis Stone,
I snatched it up.
no - I'm not generally relaxed while cooking.
I figured maybe I'd get some kitchen inspiration;
- and so does everyone else in the house -
that I've been severely lacking in inspiration
in the kitchen.
I'd barely looked at the pages when Josiah asked
if I had any paper he could look at.
The big boys were reading the newspaper
and he was feeling a bit left out.
I told him,
"I got a cookbook at the library today.
It has a lot of pictures; you might enjoy looking at that?"
Needless to say,
that was the end of the book for me.
I can't get it away from the kid
and when I did have a moment to look at it the other day
he caught me and said, "Quit lookin' at my book."
I told him I'd have to look at it some
if we were going to make anything from it.
The banoffee pie was a big hit
(I followed the recipe exactly - except I had light brown sugar, instead of dark)
after dinner this evening,
we'll be having Pomegranate Martinis
(If you've never heard a four year old
ask for a Pomegranate Martini - you're missing out :-)
I highly recommend a peek at the book
but if you're planning to borrow it out from theFSM library
you'll be waiting awhile;
we're definitely renewing this one!
