Instead of panicking about my future (or lack thereof), I’d like to spend some time thinking about things I love.
Today’s love story is about two books I own:
The first book has been fantastic. I cannot tell you how many times I’ve looked up a food in it to see how to choose it, how to prepare it, what it’s like, what kind of recipes it can be used in, what kinds of other foods it can substitute for. Especially this year as I’ve been trying a new food each month, I don’t always know what to do with these new foods. And this book, at a glance, will tell you everything you need to know. It’s wonderful.
The second book I’ve only used once so far, and that was last night to figure out how to freeze spinach properly. But it tells you how to store just about any type of food with all the available methods. It tells how long things will last, what the procedures are; it’s the definitive book on food storage. Spinach, incidentally, was easy. You simply blanch it for two minutes, drain it and freeze it.
For you food lovers out there, these two books will be indispensable in your kitchen. I highly recommend both.
