And here is what I just requested through interlibrary loan:
The Homemade Pantry: 101 Foods You Can Stop Buying & Start Making by Alana Chernila.
The Boston Globe has a big article today about this book, and that's how I first heard of it. (How I love Wednesdays - it's Food Pages day!) I immediately looked Homemade Pantry up at Amazon, and then checked my local library's website ... and sure enough, there are a couple of copies in circulation. But since both are checked out, I added myself to the wait list ... and I can be patient ... when I must.
Well, I hope you all have a nice day. Wednesday is my "kitchen day" which means I spend some time in there cleaning and taking stock ... starting a shopping list for the weekend and a menu for next week. Oh, and did you know it's National Zucchini Bread Day? That seems like rather odd timing since zucchini is such a summer garden staple ... but it also freezes well, so chances are one might have a package of shredded squash stashed away in the deep-freeze. Two cups worth would fit my quick bread recipe quite nicely!
Have a great day, everyone ... I'll be back later to check in.
