I am a complete book worm - I love to read and have been known to get through three or four books a week. But as well as loving the reading of books I also just love books. The feel of them, the smell of them, the look of them...you name it and I love it about a book. I don't know how many books I own - it would be a mission and a half to count them all. Suffice to say - I have a garzillion of them. So it's quite sad really that my cook book collection is so small and severely lacking in tomes. Over the years I have lent them out to "friends" only never to see them grace me with their presence again - the friends OR the books. I have owned some corkers in my time and one I still have in my possession has so much sentimental value that it shouldn't be allowed. It is the very first cook book I ever bought. It cost me a total of one pound from a Sue Ryder Charity Shop and has seen a lot of action in it's time. Now it's not vegan - in fact it is the epitome of anti vegan.
But that's OK, I love it even more for that. It has seen me through many a pudding, cake and casserole and I have vegetarianised (heh - I made a word) and veganised this little treasure so much that the only reason it's not vegan is because it's stubborn and the ink doesn't rub out. Here she is in all her blazing glory.
Look at the stains and it's even burnt where I left it too close to the stove!! The front cover came off completely so I gaffer taped it up - jeez that's some strong tape. It is full of little snippets and notes and there's even pressed Flowers in there! To show this over worked, tired, well loved book the appreciation she so deserves - I gave her a make-over. Don't all girls like a pampering. Doesn't she look gorgeous! *wolf whistles*I couldn't decide to go for The Power Puff Girls or Sponge Bob, I mean a person shouldn't have to make choices like that! So I went for both. And then I realised just how good I am at finding things to distract me from actually doing some work round here. And because I know there would be a riot if I didn't show some porn - here is my lunch Today's song is Manu Chao - Welcome to Tijuana Turn it up loud and slam down some Tequilla!!! Arrrribaaaa!!!
