CAMISOLE AND COOKBOOKS
After seeing Carolyn Aiken's feature on an old vintage camisole - I experienced a little memory reflection........I remembered I had received a vintage camisole many years ago in a secret sister swap. At the time I hung it on the wall in my laundry room but after a while it got "dryer" dusty so I washed it and and then I lost track of it. After a little search yesterday...I found it down in the basement in a box with some lacy doilies.
I also found 3 great cookbooks at Barnes and Noble last night. Yes, I left home during the Superbowl to go look at cookbooks. Isn't that terrible. Shame on me!
I purchased all three cookbooks for less than $20.00 with my membership: The Afternoon Tea Collection $7.98 (also I had a coupon), The French Kitchen Cookbook $6.98 and Grandma's Recipes $6.98 (An English cookbook)
This is not a book review because I haven't had time to read them yet - the point is a girl can NEVER have too many cookbooks and during the winter we have the time for research and reading! I did notice a Blueberry Clafoutis in The French Kitchen Cookbook that looked lovely. The Afternoon Tea Collection has an entire chapter on "Friands" which are little cakes made with egg whites and ground nuts. I see I have more to learn here. There were numerous types too. Grandma's Recipes has a recipe for Welsh Rarebit which I am interested to studying. Lastly, Julia Child would have been pleased to see a recipe for Boeuf Bourguignon.
I will be linking this post to: A Delightsome Life and Tea Time Tuesday and Mod Mix Monday
