Okay, I lie. I can't stop. One of my New Year's resolutions was not to buy any new cookbooks. I stuck to my resolution for a few months and then I fell off the wagon. I don't even know how many cookbooks I've purchased so far this year. Today I bought four of them. I found some in the cupboard the other day that I barely remember purchasing.
I've tried to feed my habit with library books but it's just not the same. It's like trying on clothes and then not buying them. No satisfaction. Except cookbook never make your ass look fat. Well. Perhaps that's not exactly true.
I'm still in control. We aren't going hungry while I spend all our money on cookbooks. Luckily bargain books usually satisfy my urges. However I have noticed I'm beginning to get a taste for the finer cookbooks. How long will it be before I pay full-price for a cookbook?
What bothers me most about my habit is that I rarely use a recipe. So to justify my habit I'm going to start trying some new recipes and sharing the results here. If I can just spread some cookbook joy to just one other person, it will be worth it!
