It doesn't have to be a new years resolution but inevitably there are some jobs that start out as such. Like cleaning out the pile of recipe books from Coles and Woolworths. I can't take all the blame for collecting as my daughter also collects these for me as well!
This is not the first time I have cleaned out this type of magazine and after each frenzied episode I start to gather again. I say to myself that I'm not going to collect these as there are a myriad of recipes on the net and pinterest.
So with the intention of going through the mags and saving just the recipes I might cook, I set about making a new folder cover in which to store these gems! Now I could have made an easy one like the folder above, but I need to trace and stick and applique then sew before I am satisfied!
I can't take the credit for the idea as it came from Jennifer who is also making a folder cover, although her cover is for patterns and sewing. You'll just have to wait to see it over on her blog.
The apron has tiny pockets and goodness knows what will go in these!
All done and ready to fill with the cut out pages of delicious food ideas......if only I'd cook some!
Actually I'm liking the look of that chicken recipe on the Coles mag...might start with that one first!
Maybe I'll not have to do this again.
I went to Woolworths today and guess what? NO recipe books came home with me!
