I'm so excited. I got my cookbook in the mail. I can't wait to try some new recipes. I don't cook hardly at all anymore because I never feel like spending that much time in the kitchen, but reading it sure gets me in the mood. My dad got me an engineer's desk chair for the kitchen. The seat is 27" high, so I sit right up there at the right heighth to work on things on counter level, and I can push off and roll from stove to sink, to refrigerator. It is a big help in the mornings when my legs ache so bad it hurts to stand long enough to make a pot of coffee. Now I can't wait to get in there and try out some of all of my new FM friends recipes. I'm fairly new to the board, so maybe I can get some of my recipes in volume 2. If you haven't ordered one, you need to get one. Good tried and true recipes, with lots of helpful hints. Happy Holidays to you all.
