Since I did not want today to be a total loss, I decided to work on one of my christmas challenge goals.
Two years ago I decided to make a cookbook for our children, filled with a lot of their favorite recipes. Most are recipes that had been handed down from my mom and grandmothers.
The first year, I was busy typing up enough recipes to fill a small 1 1/2 inch binder. I even added pictures of the animals on the farm to make it a little more memorable for us. Last christmas, I decided to make it a tradition to hand down more recipes, and gave them a folder filled with 25 to 30 recipes that they enjoyed over the years.
This has been a good project for me as it forces me to sit down and write down a lot of the recipes I just do by memory. I want something that my kids can use and even hand down to their children.
My challenge this year is to add at least 5 or more recipes a month to their binders. So far I have 10 typed out with at least that many more in my notebook, ready for typing. Do any of you have a project like this going for your children?
Now I need to get busy on trying out a new recipe. Wendell is complaining he is hungry so I am planning to do chicken with mushroom sauce. Mmmmmmmm..... I will be sure to share the recipe if it turns out good.
Take care and stay warm,Debbie
