The one with many hats is also the one with many books – cookbooks that is! She has quite a collection as represented in the picture.
She has at least one favorite recipe in every book but mostly she uses the books for reference and for general guidance.
So, in homage to her collection, we offer a poem....
ODE TO THE COLLECTION
The cook with the book
Has many stored in a nook
And reference she does when she’s on the hook
To cook for a crowd or just for a look
She also knits hats
And has a cool little cat
Who used to be fat
She’s very old now, enough about that!
Tonight we had vegetarian chili, made with small French lentils, farrow (wheat grain) pink beans, peppers, onions, tomatoes and many other yummy things, greens, grapefruit, and avocado salad and a cinnamon cream crumb cake for dessert. We post a link to the chili recipe for your reference. VegetarianChiliRecipe
The architect (AKA procrastinator) is still working on her first hat and is having trouble with structure…we may need to excuse her from the knit part of our gathering, but perhaps we will give her a pass because she is a good cook and was working on an architectural project that was recently submitted. It's her turn to cook next week so if we want to eat on Tuesday, we have to show mercy!
