Every once in a while I manage to talk myself into getting some recipe cards made. After I finally tweak a recipe to my liking, it's like a week-long convincing to pull the typewriter out and get to it. The recipes are beginning to stack up.
I always enjoy making them, it's just getting the typing done that gets in the way. I don't know why.
I've already done most of the recipes that only have a few ingredients. Now for the recipes that require more than the 4" X 6" space of the card.
Brads seemed like a good idea to keep everything together but to be able to move sections out of the way for prep and cooking. They are working out very well.
Yes, now I have a new supply of fun brads. It's always something else we need on hand, isn't it. And it MUST be an assortment...not just any old brad will do. You know what I mean.
AND, you know me, the backs can't be boring!
Sometimes the back is where the food photo ends up too. I really like the food photo on the front with the rest of the recipe, but if I've made the dish enough, I guess I'm ok with the photo on the back.
These cards are so much better than the mess my recipes are in while they wait their turn to become artsy looking as well as delicious.
I don't like wasting my life with cooking. But I don't like eating bad food either. Any opportunity to make the chore "seem" more enjoyable, I'm all for it. And artsy recipe cards at least make the start of this chore more fun. I truly wish I enjoyed cooking because I'm actually pretty good at it.
