There were a series of years, (more than I care to admit), where my love of things equine resulted in all Christmas, birthday, and “just because” presents being oriented around the horse theme. There were horse books, horse figurines, horse journals, Waterford Crystal horse head wine bottle stoppers, horse belts, horse sticker books, and of course, the horse calendar.
An equestrian to this day, I somehow seemed to evolve past what we will only refer to as “the horsey years”.
However, as my interest in cooking has grown, cook books seem to have become the replacement. Let me be clear. I adore cook books. But I have now ended up with a bookshelf of them, and therefore thousands of recipes I’ve never even tried. The other day a wave of panic crossed my mind as I thought about all the recipes out there in the world and how I would never be able to make them all.
While I certainly won’t be able to make them all, I am determined to at least start cooking a representative cross-section of them.
So, here’s the challenge:
The Meal Plan will be back in full force. But each week will be based off solely ONE cookbook. My goal is to get through all of them (although we’ll see how it goes when I get to the really boutique and/or outlandish ones.)
Wish me luck…I’m going in!
