She has not caught on to this pattern yet and she cheerfully looks up the recipe and we chat and talk about how good the food is.
I'm a little tired of that. And more importantly I'm worried that my mom will get tired of that.
The good news is that there is a simple solution. You know what I use to organize things? The internet. None of us have encyclopedias anymore. I have no idea how to look for things at my local library because I just search the internet, put in a request and my local librarian calls me when it's ready. The internet people.
So I cleaned out the kitchen junk drawer and gathered as many post-its and scraps as I could and I'm going to post them here so that I can always find them. I don't claim to be a great cook but luckily most recipes that come from my mom contain butter and cream so we should be fine.
From now on I promise that I'll only ask for each recipe once.
