Day 21 – AYGC

Wow! Three weeks in already!

I picked up some cookbooks today from a fellow freecycler. Old cookbooks… just the way I love them! A Yankee Cookbook from 1939, an Indian cookbook and a Chinese cookbook (both from the 1970s). Why do I like old cookbooks? Well, it’s usually cheaper to cook with unprocessed ingredients and there weren’t too many around back in the old days. The only drawback is when a recipe calls for something obscure and I can’t find a modern substitute, which isn’t nearly the problem is used to be before wikipedia and answers.com.

Dinner today (prepared by my hubby) was bratwurst baked in sauerkraut, served with real mashed potatoes and a mixture of corn & peas. Yum! Why does dinner always taste better when somebody else cooks it?

No shopping today, so I’m well under my budget for the week. Heading downstairs to make muffin batter for tomorrow morning.
