I am now slightly obsessed with food...flavours..healthy options.."food sensitivity options" and of course cookbooks. My collection has grown and grown...and my list of "books I want" has also grown.
I have an ever growing stack of hardcover books... e-books... and favourite websites I visit over and over.
Its become confusing and over-whelming and I feel like I never utilise any of them enough. I know there are fabulous recipes within those pages that I just never got around to trying... and what is the point of adding yet another book to my pile when I have barely used any of the ones I've got?
So....I have given myself a challenge..
Each week I want to take one book off the shelf....and plan my week from its pages...
I want to try some of these recipes ..
and record my thoughts...
build myself a useful index of recipes I love....and heaven forbid...cull the books that just don't work for me. Now this is a challenge on top of a challenge...because as always I will need to modify and adapt to suit my crummy sensitivities... but that's life...and I will choose wisely and switch ingredients as I go.
I started this week...
we are mid-way through a week out of one of these books...and its been brilliant so far (other than a unwise food choice which gave me a migraine and GIT upset.. but at least I re-tested a food on my ?sensitive list and got a positive result...always an upside) I have my fridge stocked with lots of yummy leftovers and some more delicious meals planned for the remainder of the week. I feel really good using the recipes...and getting some value for the money I spent on this book. I will share my thoughts..success and failures after the end of the week... but I am warning you in advance... food photography is a skill that I don't possess...well not yet anyway.
