Instead, Dom at Belleau Kitchen, the mastermind between then Random Recipes challenges has asked us to give the world a sneak peak into our culinary lives by photographing and posting some in-situ shots of our cook book libraries.
So here's mine! But be warned - I got a little bit snap happy!
|2/3 cookbooks, 1/3 board books!|
Let's start with the highest concentration of cook books - the hall book case. I get 2 shelves, Mini-M gets one. Although recently she's started asking to read "Mummy books" too, and is particularly a fan of River Cottage Veg Everyday, where she likes ordering me to turn the pages and pointing out all the veg that she knows. It's a shame her willingness to eat them wasn't as extensive as her vocabulary!

The bookcase sits in our hallway, with Luigi for company.
|Spot the cookbooks...|
|Living room cook books|
|A few more obscuring a picture (poor picture!)|
|The cooker (and it's surrounding chaos)|
|Oh look - the cook books!|
|What's behind the curtain?|
This curtain is as old as I am - I remember it at home as a child, and then when we moved into our house, it re-emerged from a box of old curtains. I love it's brown flowers 1970s feel. But what lurks behind it?
|Finally, the paltry kitchen cookbook offering...|
|Just chaos - no organisation this time!|
