Sunday Night Rewind: For the love of cookbooks


{Sunday Night Rewind – on Monday morning! Technical difficulties last night! This post originally posted on 28th May 2009.} 


cooking the books

Hello hello!! It's 10pm and I'm halfway through cooking a huge bolognaise and raspberry muffins and choc chip biscuits to take with us to a family holiday house up on the Hawkesbury River, tomorrow morning. 

The house belongs to our friend Roo's family, his grandparents I think, and there's no electricity or running water as I understand. But apparently it has a fantastic kitchen. Awesome!

Our friends are doing the adult catering and I'm doing kids. 

So if this is disjointed, apologies: it's because I keep leaping up to take something out of the oven and stir a pot!

Anyway, I'm going to share with you another of my weaknesses. I know, I have so many. And this one is serious.

I love love love these gorgeous shelves, they go right to the ceiling, right up the stairs. And the kids and I spend a lot of time sitting on these stairs;
