A little problem

About once every other week I call my mom and ask her for a recipe.  She looks it up and I jot it down on a post-it or old envelope while we chat.  I take terrible notes.  Then, about 2 months later I call her again for the same recipe.  

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.

And Mom, 
From now on I promise that I'll only ask for each recipe once.

  1. I do the same thing! And sometimes I only write down parts of the recipe so then I look at it and have no idea what it is. I've started asking my Mom to email me the recipes so I always have it in my inbox.
