Fourth, and final, I lost my favorite cookbook today. I took it with me to the grocery store and I left it at the check-out. ARGH! This is the notebook I carried with me throughout our homeless Spring into Summer of 1994 (we were moving from Germany to Georgia). Everywhere we went, I had this notebook and into it I wrote all of the favorite recipes of all of the best meals we ate. In the years to follow, I wrote more recipes--it was full. It was my "go to" cookbook for the past 15 years and now it's gone. I'm very sad. The "White Lightnin' Chili" I prepared for dinner tonight was definitely missing something . . .
Okay, fifth, and truly final . . . this darn stove/oven is mocking me from Lowe's. It was on a discontinued clearance special. We've wanted a new one--I was supposed to save money for one. Darn kids and their teeth--mine, too. Insullation, too. Then the A/C at the shop--tires, can't forget the tires. So, no money saved for a new kitchen. But there it was . . . taunting. . . tempting. GE Profile, smooth cook-top with convection oven. I walked away, but it was difficult.
That's it (I actually thought of about three more things, but . . .).
Thanks for your indulgence.
