Books Galore

Y'all know I've been on a spending spree since I got my promotion back pay. Not only did I pay for my CSA vegetable share and my wood, gravel, and soil, I also bought a few books.

Friday night, I bought "Local Flavors: Cooking & Eating from America's Farmers' Markets," my first-ever recipe book! I bought it from Kramerbooks & Afterwords Cafe... For the suggested retail price. I should have done it at Amazon, it's $10 cheaper!

What I did buy on Amazon, however, were these books: "Preserving Summer's Bounty: A Quick & Easy Guide to Freezing, Canning, Preserving & Drying What You Grow," and "Home Cheese Making: Recipes for 75 Delicious Cheeses," by Ricki Carroll, as mentioned in "Animal, Vegetable, Miracle."

I want to learn how to do for myself, right? I love cheese: How much better would it be to make it myself? I am only growing tomatoes so that I can make my own tomato sauce and can it; similarly, that's one of the reasons I'm growing so much basil, for pesto (and drunken noodle!).

I really don't have the best kitchen for this, what with my eight inches of counter space (no lies), but food will find a way.
