Addicted....

......to cookbooks! My husband and I are constantly buying cookbooks. We have an entire bookcase dedicated to 'em. (OK, who am I kidding.......he actually buys most of the cookbooks!) He found these magazines by Cuisine at Home, and we are now utterly addicted to them! I.....sometimes we.......have been cooking up a storm the last 6 months or so. We have tried so many new and different types of recipes. It has definitely stretched our taste buds, and we have gotten Kyle very interested in cooking. He can chop, mince, peel, measure, and stir like a head chef! In its own way it has given us a bit of family time together, and we have a delicious meal to share in the end!

This LO was created for our latest challenge hosted by Jana at Noel Mignon. The challenge was to use food as your inspiration. Also, on your page, you must include:- Plaid or Checks (in honor of tablecloths, dishtowels, and aprons)- Metal (think pots and pans, silverware . . . represent it using eyelets, bookplates, paperclips, etc.)- Circle Element (dishes, cups)- the color brown or red (the colors of warm, yummy food)This challenge runs from today through November 20th. So be sure to add you link up in the comments section at Noel Mignon!

Isn't this little whisk the cutest?

I used Noel Mignon's Fabulous Mill Street kit! (sold out) You have to go HERE to check out the sneaks on her newest kit coming out soon!



********************************************

Kyle was fine all day yesterday. He had no fever or throwing up. I probably could have sent him to school, , but I know how they want the kids home for 24 hours after a fever. So it ended up being a nice day with him. We made some Christmas ornaments, read, watched a few recorded shows, and just relaxed all day.

Today Kyle and I are heading to the movies to see A Christmas Carol and have lunch together. It warms my heart to know that he still likes being with his mom. : )


Have a wonderful day! (And a big thank you to all of our veterans out there!!!!! )

Fabulous layout, Michele! I'm addicted to cookbook, too! I have to many of them, but always want more! I LOVE "Cuisine at Home" magazines--addicted to them, too! Just discovered them this last summer, and I can't get enough of them! I've been a baking fool lately, too--not good when you're trying to lose weight....oh, well!
