You Know Your Old When....

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             
You walk into an all day training and the trainer is your close friend's youngest daughter oh yea!
***
Not much on the thrifting or dump picking front. Today on my way home from said training I stopped at the thrift and found these books. I thought it was about time I read Santa's autobiography.
I finished Water for Elephants it really is a must read.


As most of you know I work in a used book store. I was weeding out cookbooks and checking the
Internet to see if
the ones being weeded were some great book I didn't know about.
Bingo! This book is listed for 225.00 at the lowest on Amazon and a couple of other sites.
This book has been in our store at least 2 years. So I plan to make one recipe a weekend to see what the excitement is about. Do any of you know any thing about this cookbook?




Last night I took one of my closest friends out for her Big Birthday!
We headed for wine down Wed.
All wine by the bottle is half price! oh yeah bring on the Kendall Jackson and the Italian food.
It was such a good night we laughed and talked for hours and finished off that bottle.
On Friday it will be 8 years since her wonderful husband died unexpectedly.
We miss you Mr B but thank God we had you in our life.
****
I am going to see Miss Baby on Sat, I can't wait to see her it has been a couple of weeks.
She giggles into the phone to her gammie oh be still my heart.
Have a wonderful weekend!

Whoa! $250 used and $500 new! I thought it was a typo but it's the same on other sites as well. I hope you bought it hopefully much, much cheaper. I've never heard of the book.

Glad you're going to see Miss Baby!

Water for Elephants is awesome. I recently read Cutting for Stone...go get it if you haven't! I've given my copy to my son...we share books! But I loved that book!

Wow, I can't imagine how expensive that cookbook is. If I were you I would flip through it and then sell it.

Wow...that's an expensive cookbook. I looked around and everywhere I went it cost a small fortune. But I couldn't find out why. I did find one like yours above bundled with four other soup cookbooks for $19.99 for all 5 cookbooks. Sooooo I just had pick it up. ;) Bill's not so big on soups but I love them. :)

Have a wonderful visit with Miss Baby. I miss my grandkids so much. I haven't been able to visit for going on 2 years now. (Everyone is out of state) Your so fortunate to get to see her frequently. :)

It sounds like you will be having a wonderful weekend with Miss Baby. Happy Birthday to your friend. What a good friend you are to treat her so well.

Wow, what a pricey cookbook. It must have been a limited edition. Lucky for you that you got it. I'm looking forward to some great recipes

The spring weather is here and the sun is shining. I hope that the sun is shining on you too today. Hugs. JB

Wanted to tell you that I found the cookbook on eBay and bought it for $16.00! Every other source was $200+! I'll be anxious to get it and see what all the hype is about. Tasha Tudor was one of my favorite illustrators so it's worth the money!
