The Mom 100 Cookbook. My favorite quote from this book:
To be a good mom, you don't have to cook every meal, or make everything from scratch, or know the provenance of every morsel of food your children eat. Give yourself a break. This cooking thing should be a little bit of fun... We need to figure out how to capture some joy in the kitchen, because guess what? We get to make dinner just about every night! And we can approach this task as though we are being asked to re-grout our bathtub nightly, or approach it with a certain amount of joie de vivre. We might as well pick that joie thing, because (as I have mentioned possibly twice already) we have to do it anyway.
I was getting the last few things together to get out the door and this is what I find. Yep, it's Monday.
Walked out the door with this: my old cell phone so I could listen to some of my favorite Xmas music and a little bit of chocolate. Gonna show these errands who's boss!
One of our first errands was a quick trip into the Library. Josiah wanted to use the elevator so we went downstairs to look at cookbooks and walked out with this armload. So far I'm really loving the Pioneer Woman cookbook but then of course that's no surprise. Any cookbook that starts with a recipe for Iced Coffee is awesome.
At the grocery store I let Josiah walk with me instead of sitting in the cart like usual. He was touching everything which was kinda driving me crazy but also giving me a chance to talk to about the things that he was seeing. He asked about this:
Josiah: Mom, what is this?
Me: It's an apple wedger.
Josiah: What does that do? Give apples wedgies?
My first book came from BookSneeze.com!
