...you're geeking out at your new cookbooks.
I ditched a whole box of old cookbooks I didn't use/had nasty recipes/had actually never opened before I moved. I've been eating much better since I moved (odd how not being depressed by your house and its crappy level of hard water can affect your desire to cook and eat at home) so last weekend I wanted to get a couple of new cookbooks about decently-easy-to-make healthy food.
power foods cookbook is perfect. Martha Stewart isn't a massive favorite of mine, but I know the Everyday Food magazine always has easy-to-prepare meals (and the pictures look yummy).
And then, last night, I scored a fantastic deal. There were cookbook box sets - like gift sets - at the store that got really discounted. As in "about 75% off" discounted. These are fancy cookbooks, great for reference or have AMAZING recipes (also with ingredients I'm pretty sure I never heard of). I actually had been considering buying one or the other of these sets but just couldn't justify the expense before. I'm so excited about this one:
It even comes with a facsimile copy of the opening-night French Laundry menu, signed by Keller. Wheee!
I had a gift card left to use so I only had to fork over 7 dollars cash for those two sets. Seriously geeking out and drooling all over that French Laundry cookbook. Now I just need Bouchon for yummy bistro cooking.
