Recipe # 3…

I’ve just found another Recipe Page that I had in Draft ready to go, but never did schedule.

We are slowly getting the hang of creating pages for our Recipe Book & I will be the first to admit, I am really enjoying this.  It is great to see my little folder coming to life & I love flipping through the pages to check out the layout of each page – all 4 pages haha.  No, no cooking by me yet!

For one of today’s pages, we again used the same DSP we did last month, I am now out of it.  Great that it could be used in such a way.

Again, the page was left blank for the ladies to place their own recipe.  They really like the idea of the pages being completed this way. 

At each class I have the recipes that the ladies have given me & they are quiet welcome to take a copy of each recipe for their book.  This way, they are getting a copy of other recipes that in some cases have been handed down 2 generations.  Wouldn’t it be a shame for those recipes to be forgotten & lost?

I thought the DSP was very appropriate for the Curry Chicken or is that my sick sense of humour?
