Sabrina and I did something today that was so remarkable, so refreshing and (quite frankly) so rare, I felt compelled to come straight home and write about it.
Ready for this?
After I picked her up from work, we stopped at the local Barnes and Noble Bookstore.
Like real, made-from-paper books.
Not electronic stuff.
Watching her happily prance through the aisles while carrying a stack that was almost as tall as she is, made me realize that going to the bookstore shouldn’t be such an unusual occurrence. So we devised a plan to go more often….. like at least once a month. Or, when she’s read all the books she purchased.
Which could very well mean we go back next week.
Anyway, while I was in the store, pursuing the cookbook section (and for the record, I restrained from purchasing Lisa Fain’s new cookbook, The Homesick Texan’s Family Table). Why I exercised restraint, I couldn’t tell you…….
But I digress. While looking through the cookbook, I realized something interesting…… not at of the recipes have photos attached.
Which made me think…… as much as I try to post a (reasonably) good photo with the recipes on my blog, sometimes you just want to record something that you (and/or the family) enjoyed so much……and you stop yourself from posting because you don’t have a photo – good, bad, or otherwise.
And at that moment, I realized that line of thought was silly. Unnecessary.
Short story? Expect more recipes, which may/may not have photos attached.
And that’s the end of my short story.
