This is my recipe file. Does it look anything like yours? As I find recipes I want to try, I print them off and set them on top of the printer where they stack up for a few days or weeks, whatever, until I file them properly.
Let's see what's in the file...I have four this week.
1. Cheddar, Gruyère and Chive Bread~Savoring Time in the Kitchen
2. Grilled Chicken Salad with Feta, Fresh Corn, and Blueberries~Pioneer Woman
3. Chocolate Biscuit Cake for Prince William~Mennonite Girls Can Cook
4. Sopapillas~Sweet Nothings
One has made it to my refrigerator so far — Sopapillas! (BJ's recipe)
As I was exclaiming to BJ last night, I haven't had those in years...not since my Oklahoma days. It was a lovely trip back in time. I'm sure that I can do better with more practice. For one thing, you can tell that I didn't fret much over shapes. ;>
Just tossing in a little progress report on dishes and finding homes for them. One thing always leads to another and if I make room here, then something must go there. Lots of somethings have been packed and are now labeled "Yard Sale or Goodwill." It depends on my energy levels.
Now this is temporary because very soon I'm going to be painting the kitchen wall. I've had quite enough with the "wood look" and this way it'll get us prepared for painting the rest. I'm coming in for a landing on a linen color, I think...about the shade of the putty John used in the cracks before I went, "Accccckkkkk!" (That was before I married him when he was just the carpenter. I might not feel so free to say that these days. ☺)
I used Nan's cracked dishes in my plate and platter arrangement. I have yet to find the entire two sets and am not sure that I wish to go looking after a week of boxes all over the place.
Now do tell me, how do you store your recipes? And where, pray tell, do you put extra dishes?
