I have always loved to cook. Well, maybe less so lately with only two people to feed. Thankfully, my husband has begun to enjoy the heat of the kitchen.
Over the years, we have collected a variety of cookbooks. Even after parting with some of them before moving to our new townhouse, we still have two full bookcases: one upstairs,
and one smaller one on the first floor near the kitchen. And we have a three-ring binder stuffed with old favorites we have cut out from newspapers and magazines.
I have kept my Mom’s old hand-written recipes and some of her cookbooks, too.
In planning our family Christmas dinner, which is at our house each year, we are searching for meal plans. Of course, we can always Google recipes but how much more fun to find those with memories attached?
May your holidays be filled with good food, cherished memories, and the closeness of loved ones.
And I like that you like to cook. I benefit!
It’s fun to cook for people who appreciate the effort.
What an enjoyable blog entry. Holiday cooking and Christmas traditions seem to go hand in hand. Have a warm & lovely holiday with your family. Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas!
Thanks Betty. Merry Christmas to you and Norm.
