Decluttering = Cookies
Friday, July 14, 2017
So the bookcase full of cookbooks in the kitchen is collapsing. That told me my next project was to deal with that. Soooo I started with the foot long file box of recipes I have been collecting ever since I learned how to read.
I thought it would be easy to discard all the cards that had recipes from magazines glued on them that I had never made, etc. etc. But the recipes laying on the top were ones I HAD made and enjoyed. That slowed me down. I flipped through to find a category I could safely purge. I don't know how it happened, but I discarded three recipes, gave two to my husband for inspiration, and pulled out 4 cookie recipes "to use up stuff in the pantry".
Today is the coldest day we are likely to have for a while, so the batch of peanut butter cookies just came out of the oven and sweet hubby is on his way back from the store with butter for the coconut cookies. Thank goodness we have plenty of room in the freezer. It will be nice to be able to grab just one cookie from the freezer for that inevitable sweet tooth. Now I just have to learn to stop at one.
And that little bookcase in the kitchen, is still collapsing....Next time...
