Wow! There is a recipe for everything. I mean everything. I've found so many that I loved! And I've lost so many that I loved! In 1982 I started a book. We called it the little green book and when I had a recipe I loved I wrote down where it was. Maybe a magazine, a cook book, a newspaper clipping. I have dozens of cook books! Soon I could go to this book to not only find the location of a favorite but to remind myself of what they were. This helps menu planning a great deal.
Today this is so much easier than a little green book. You have Excel and lots of software for recipe saving. If you want to set up an Excel program for tracking I can help you with that.
Maybe you'd like to scan those recipes and keep them close at hand. That's a great idea with how fast we can do things now. I remember having to type recipes I wanted to save and that rarely happened. A couple of my daughters have started notebooks of main dishes and sides and all the stuff you need for a meal. That is a handy way to do recipes. What are you using? Nothing? Well this is key to doing that meal planning for the next 30 years or what ever. Start a plan and I will add more and more to help you in the next blog. I also have an April fools surprise that's not for fools. Watch for the details in up coming blogs
