[definitely not] news flash.

30 March 2011

are you ready for my amazing discovery* this month:

the library has cookbooks, people.

for free.

and you can check them out for 2 months (as long as they’re not uber-popular, of course).



for free.

to cook from.

[are you getting the awesomeness yet?]

here’s my loot for this week:

oh, and we’re not becoming vegan, really, but i am attempting to expand my culinary repetoire, and we’re making some changes around casa derose in the food department, but more about that later.

until then: who’s coming for dinner?

*      *      *      *     *

note: as i gushed about my incredible bounty of culinary literature, the dear boy informed me that this is no new thing, as i have this thing called the “internet machine” which contains thousands of recipes.

my reply: FREEEEEEEEE! BOOOOOOOOOOOKS FOR COOOOOOOOOOKING! and then i proceeded to run around the apartment banging bowls and pots with a spoon.  mature, right?]

note to the note: this entire exchange may have just been imagined.

final note, associated with the asterisk at the beginning: i tend to “discover” things about 7 years after they are popular, or (and this happens less often) exactly 9 months before they become ubiquitous, and then prattle on about them to others as if i’ve just found the NEXT BIG THING.  my kind friends tolerate me.

    So, if you discover something 9 months before it becomes ubiquitous, does that mean you’ve gestated a ubiquity baby?

    You know how I feel about Veganomicon, but I also think Mark Bittman is pretty awesome. Enjoy your culinary adventures!
