It’s been a very long time, my friends. I now am the mother of a 4-year-old and a 14 month old. Life has been very busy and full of frenetic energy. All those mothers of several boys know exactly what I am talking about. One of my biggest time consumers is that my boys EAT ALL DAY LONG. Now most of you are probably thinking that this means I let them snack too often and they are not eating their meals. Wrong! They eat their meals and snack all day long. So it’s a constant dance of chop, cut, prepare, clean.
Do you ever just have one of those days? Days where nothing goes right, where you burn things that aren’t supposed to be burnt? Where you don’t cook a custard long enough for it to set? Then the custard flows out of the bottom of the tart pan and onto every shelf in your refrigerator? Hmmm…No? Well, yesterday was certainly one of those days for me.
I’m very into all things vintage so I was beyond excited to get this book in the mail from my mother.
It’s chock full of sound advice like this…”Planning, preparing and serving meals is an art which develops through inspiration and thought. And meal planning is really fun! It may look difficult to the beginner, but like driving a car, swimming, or anything we learn to do without thought or conscious effort, it is a skill which grows easier with doing.”
