I have a folder that is bulging with pages of recipes that I have cut out of magazines and newspapers. Do you have one of those, too?
Rarely have I ever made any of the food in these recipes. Today I decided this would change, so I sorted through the sheets.
It was fascinating. I have collected multiple recipes for similar foods. It would appear I enjoy a limited range of dishes (or I think I would, since I've never cooked any of them). Lots of salmon or chicken dishes are in my file, as well as vegetable recipes. There are also plenty of recipes for banana cake (how many versions does one person need?)
I've decided to make a recipe from my file every week. If it turns out I don't like the taste, the recipe will be discarded. Here I go!
Today's effort was these beef and vegetable pasties. Perfect for a casual Sunday lunch; they are delicious, so that recipe stays in my file.
Cooking is a satisfying activity but it takes time and inclination. Sometimes I have one but not the other. A domestic goddess, I am not. How about you?
