My Recipe Tin
I have kept my recipes in this tin since I was married back in 1988. Not the ones I used out of a book of course, but the ones you copy from friends, our cut out of magazines. This tin from Nestle came with 2 bags of chocolate chips. Remember all the collectible tins that they put out? I think I may have them all.
It worked well, for many years. But lately, I am repeatedly frustrated at not being able to put my hands right on a recipe that I KNOW is in there!
I have been intending to make recipe books for my girls. To copy the recipes by retyping them or photocopying them and putting them into a 3 ring binder in page protectors.
Of course, this would have been the perfect summer project, but the summer has flown by with other things...
Soon though, very soon, this will get done. If it doesn't I may go crazy, my hair will turn gray, I will start to forget things...oh wait. That is happening already! Oh, no! Sigh...
I guess that is the result of getting older, gaining all that amazing wisdom, having a granddaughter, and being a busy Momma at home! Well, at least it isn't because my recipes are a mess!
