100 Facts about elle in 100ish days However Long It Takes (16)

Fact #16

The best way (meaning superior to the myriad other ways) to get me off track?

Cookbooks and Recipe Cards. And not internet recipes. I need ones I can hold in my hands without printing them out first. I love them in bookstores. I love the cards that come in the mail sometimes. I love the magazines in the check out line. I love getting out the ones my mom had from the 70s and 80s. I love the ones school or church organizations put out.

And I never have time to cook anymore.

I'll go you one better. I love cookbooks and those recipe cards too. But I really don't like to cook. I have a collection of cookbooks. And I like to read them and dream up menus to parties and dinners that I will never have. The thought of actually cooking and entertaining doesn't hold much appeal to me. But I do love me some cookbooks. I even have the new Delta Sigma Theta cookbook.

there are good recipes though.
