I have been a TOTAL slacker!
Ok, maybe not. I did read 121 books and start on Harry Potter in Turkish (which I do not speak or read – yet!) I also made my first pair of gloves and created a new candy recipe.
Starting January I am getting back on track with 2 major recipe projects:
The Retro Recipe project & 52 Weeks, 52 soups Project
I have a recipe hoard from my two grandmothers that I am trying to organize. Thankfully one of them didn't actually cook so there is less then 300 recipe cards to go through (and a few seem to be duplicates.) I am thinking to combine recipes with genealogy (which my mother does) for X-mas gifts. I even have a recipe from my great-grandfather who was a well-known ENT doctor in
. His recipe starts out with take 18# grapes, stems removed (no rotten ones!) . . . Minneapolis
Of course to me the most important one is Vernie’s Rice Pudding. If I have it correct she was my great-grandmothers sister’s daughter and was born
03/08/1889 in . I always request this for the holidays and family get togethers. Center City, Minnesota
I had already started on the hoard of my other grandmother (My Grandmother's Blue Books) so I will continue with that.
52 Weeks, 52 soups
The hubby & I are planning to try one new soup recipe a week this year. They are great for lunches. We have a pressure canner so we can make a big batch and can it. He made some roasted carrot & tomato soup that was really good this month.
