I can hear the carpenter tap… tap… tapping away in the kitchen, which can only be a good thing right..? The Viking and I have surmised that we should be able to move back into the kitchen on Saturday which, as you can imagine, is very exciting!… it won’t be finished completely, as the floor tiles still need to go down… but good enough to get back in and having Belleau Kitchen back and up and running again… marvellous!
This month’s Random Recipes challenge has been inspired by Gary from Exploits of a Food Nut who, last month used his pile of saved food magazines to choose his recipe from instead of his cook books… how brilliant eh? and it got me thinking about the very large pile of not only magazines but recipes I’ve cut from newspapers, free pull-outs that come with Sunday supplements, clippings that mum has saved and posted to me (yes, I know…) and how most of them just get folded into my clippings folder or slid into the pages of another un-read cookbook… well it’s time to get them out and get randomly selecting…
… usual rules apply:
1. place all your magazines, clippings and pull-outs in a pile
2. close your eyes, or find a willing partner to close their eyes
3. randomly select an item from the pile and either flick through to select a recipe or if it’s a clipping, cook that chosen recipe
4. write a lovely post about it, with a link back to this post, take a lovely picture and then send me a link to your post by emailing me at email@example.com… please try and remember to send me an email as some of you have forgotten recently and I just happen to stumble across them!
… and come ON now folks… no cheating this time… you’re the one who cut out this recipe to keep in the first place, so it should be something you thought you’d like to cook at the very least!
… now where’s that pile of Good Housekeeping Magazine’s… I think there’s a recipe for Butter Bean Whip i’d been meaning to avoid…
