Today's prompt is Books
I am so close to the finishing post with this gratitude project and yet nearly came a cropper today - I thought I had a post drafted and schedule to go live this morning and guess what? I didn't! I can't fail this close to the end!
So let me introduce you to a selection of my cookery books, I do love a new cookery book and have to restrain myself when I realise that I already have probably far too many. Having said that, I do use them a lot and if you were to see the other side to the book you would see many post it notes and sticky tabs on the edges of the pages, marking tried and tested recipes that I return to time and time again. You will note there seems to be favourites in there, you can never go wrong with a Mary Berry recipe, nor a Jamie Oliver! The Gino Di Campo books are actually Paul's, and have been the ones which have inspired him to learn to cook since retiring. He loves all things Italian and Gino's recipes are easy to follow and delicious to eat - they have been a very worthwhile purchase!
PS Daily Update - Have spent most of today helping with keeping Rosie occupied while Rachel continues to pack. Fortunately her husband seems to be feeling a bit better and was working in London today so fingers continue to be crossed on that front. Paul has helped by taking a bootful of 'stuff' to the local tip and as we went home this afternoon, I felt that with one day to go, they are now organised and the amount of packing is definitely doable. If you had asked me how I felt when I was there on Saturday afternoon, it would have been a very different answer!
Time to go downstairs and find out what Boris has said about the next stage once we leave lockdown. Rachel had always said that if they were in their new home by Christmas she wanted to host the day and it seems like we will be allowed to do that so woo hoo! What a treat to be a Christmas guest and not a Christmas chef!
