I had planned to spend a few hours looking at another suitable book. Well, I got distracted by my other two recipe files, and thought I might share those with you today before we move to the new set up next week.
They both contain A4 recipe sheets from either magazines or photocopies from books. The first one contained the printed sheets that I was given in 1984 when I was doing my cookery O level in senior school. Each page has been dated and has the grade I was given. If you look carefully you can read 15 Nov 1984 Grade B. I wonder what happened to the teacher, who incidentally was called Mrs Walker?
The second file is again oversize recipes, mainly the sort you pick up from the supermarket as complimentary recipes.
Of course having kept some of these sheets for years. There are also some smaller ones that date to 1978! Unless I am looking for something specific I have no way of knowing just what recipe I have within those files. I think I should index them into Excel and then add a sheet to each file. Another job for a rainy day and we are getting plenty of those!
