I'm in hopes that there are only few of us out here who are obsessed with clipping recipes from the newspaper, magazines - or any other source. I must have had a total lapse in common sense this afternoon... I decided to "organize" about a gazillion recipes...
some multiple per page, others clippings no more than 1 1/2" by a few! WHAT WAS I THINKING?
After a trip for supplies, and $40 later, I dove in with all of the best intentions... 8 hours later, I'm tempted to toss the lot into the recycle bin, saying "good riddance!" You must realize that I've NEVER prepared any of these saved treasures (dating
back a few years, I'd best add!) Granted, as I've sifted through these today, some sound rather tantalizing. Others include very obscure ingredients, or in retrospect do not sound appealing at all! I'm tempted to say that I could work on this "project"
for a few hours/day, and still have more to do after a month or two!
A few, I've copied/printed... until I got tired of messing with that! I pulled out some previously used file folders, and began sorting some of the individual clippings... I still have a stack to sort, but more importantly, a stack of pages paperclipped together,
as they have multiples on the pages, which often run over onto the next page... hence, I cannot toss any of the pages! Now, which stack does this "bunch" go on? Oops.. not the salad pile! Where's the breakfast pile....?
So, my mission may well be classified as a failure, or it may simply take a different turn than I'd anticipated earlier today. Should that become the case, I'd best REALLY practice my "touch typing" skills... and hope the ol' laptop has plenty of empty memory!
OR, I could keep the file folders as they are, and simply place recipes in the appropriate folder... presto, job done...? Guess I've been "crazy" much longer than I'd realized!
Thanks to those of you who commented on yesterday's post... I did leave a short msg...
Be well, be happy, be crazy (and toss all of those clippings!)
