The boat cushions are well underway. Yeah!!
Pics early this afternoon if I can get that organized. Today is the first day off work in awhile. Between the pant class I'm teaching, a zipper class I taught Monday, my regular job, and making boat cushions, I've been keeping busy.
MissD, you have a package coming as soon as this pant class is finished. ;)
And today I have 4 "kids" coming for the Easter weekend. And if my thinking is right, 3 dogs. Our quiet household is going to get unquiet, quickly.
So this AM I'm organizing the menus for the weekend, and going shopping.
I have years - boxes and boxes worth of cooking magazines downstairs. As I was going through my back Spring issues of Saveur Cooks this AM, I found out they have a website. (duh moment, of course they do.)
I've known for quite some time that Bon Appetit and Gourmet recipes are to be found on Epicurious.com.
Taunton Press has just released a CD/DVD of all 15 years worth of Fine Cooking. for only $99.95.
Dh is getting it for me for Easter or Birthday or maybe just May Day.
I'm so excited (I know, doesn't take much, does it?)
And, now I can get rid of all those boxes of paper mags in the basement, without the angst that accompanies the thought of never having that info again.
Anyone want to start a letter/email writing campaign to Taunton Press to get them to issue 150 back issues of Threads on a DVD set?
Would you pay $100 to own a complete set of Threads on DVD? I would! In fact, I have, many times over, in that I've paid +/- $4 for each magazine, and have most of them, starting with issue #1.
The information in them is invaluable.
Leave a comment here if you would, and I'll pass this blog post on to Taunton, and while you're at it, dash off a quick email to PublicRelations@taunton.com
Back to writing the shopping list.
If I don't get back this afternoon with pics of the cushion progess, Have a Happy Easter.
And if you don't celebrate Easter, at least have a wonderful weekend.
Bang for my Buck
