"Wildcard" Wednesday: Mixing things up and Anxiously Awaiting...
Yes, I've skipped Sunday - Tuesday. I told you anything could happen on "Wildcard" Wednesday.
I haven't permanently skipped them though. "Salad or Smoothie" Sunday, "Make Something New" Monday and "Timesaver" Tuesday should be posted tonight and I will be back on track! I will beg you to cut me a little slack as I've been busy packaging prints and crocheting hats for this weekend's Mistletoe Market (at Wakefield High - Raleigh, NC).
Now on to "Wildcard" Wednesday...
I anticipate December every year. I love December. I love the weather. I love the holiday decorations. I love the Christmas parties. I love singing Christmas carols. I love Christmas movies. I love purchasing, making and wrapping gifts. I'll even admit to loving receiving gifts. Oh, yeah, I love hanging out with my family and friends too. ;)
This December, there is something else I'm looking forward to with much excitement. If you don't know this already, I love good cookbooks. I was so tempted to add this to my Christmas list hoping a family member would buy it for me. But according to Amazon it's supposed to release on December 7 and I didn't want to wait the extra couple weeks. And then what if nobody chose to purchase it? ::shudder::
Appetite For Reduction says it's full of fast, filling, low-fat vegan recipes. All of those adjectives are right up my alley. Unlike most "low-fat" cookbooks, I'm not at all hesitant to try this one. The author, Isa Chandra Moskowitz, knows good food. After all, she's the author of Vegan with A Vengeance, and co-author of Veganomicon. Really, she's not one to slap words like "low fat" on a book and just assume it will sell because people will buy anything that will help on their most recent "diet." She says she wrote this book for herself, so I can be sure that I'll be as happy with the recipes I make from it as I am from the two books mentioned above (my two most used cookbooks, by the way) If you want to be as excited as I am checking the mailbox in the upcoming month, you can do what I did: preorder on Amazon.
