I'm NOT Much Of A Resolution Setter!
I'm NOT Much Of A Trend Setter!
I Am Good At Makin' Somethin' Outta Not Much Of Nothin'!
HiHoney calls that Stingy! I call it Conservative!
No matter what you call it, I've always relied on my Stingyness....especially in the Art of Kitchen Conservation!
Here it is a New Year and I'm going to put on a New Apron with Deeper Pockets and try my PotHolder Hand at
'Cooking Thru TwentyOneOne' with the 'New Joy of Cooking'.
The Joy of Cooking is definately NOT New...in fact, my 1997 Edition was a Thrift Find in a Used Book Shop for $1. I really wanted a copy of Julia's Cookbook, and searched for months after seeing the movie for a used one. Ha! Used ones on Amazon were not $1 and NEW ones...Ha! Besides, I don't think in a Cabillion Conservative Years I could make that 'Aspic Recipe'... that's French for 'Fancy CalvesFeet'.
Mmmmm Cream of Cauliflower Soup....My First Joy of Innovative Soup!!!
I have to Preface my Claim to Innovative Cooking...you see I have a Few FoodAllergies and HiHoney has Salt, Cholesterol, Fat, etc. Issues. Put those together with InateStingyness, and you have Extended Hours at the Grocery Store where I'm known as the 'Sherlock HomeGal'...have Magnifyer Can Find MSG.
Whew...Shopping Challenges and Cooking Challenges.... that's Okay...I Love a Challenge!
