In my Family/Consumer Sciences class, I had a end of semester project that had a exam grade. Guess what it was. A recipe book. EASY-Peezy right? I thought so too! I mean, what kind of easy project is that? The teacher herself said it was an easy 10. So I embarked on my recipe hunting, and began my project.
It hasn't been going so well. I decided to make a recipe scrapbook. Kind of start a family tradition of some sort. Putting my mom's tried recipes and my new experiments and our creations together in one lovely binder. Not working. Did you know that scrapbooking is actually ridiculously expensive? So far my recipes are in a folder. (Mom's old choir folder. Quite unpractical.) So yesterday daddy took me out (he had to run some errands) and I went out with a purpose. To find a decent scrapbook to put my recipes in. I had the other option of making a recipe box, but that was not to be considered. Until... I saw the prices. Oh there were some decent scrapbooks all right. But absolutely NO decent prices! And there I stood, in the middle of a department store, with a scrapbook in one hand, cardstocks in the cart, stickers on my mind, and a box in the other hand. Blabbing on and on about the pro's and the con's of scrapbooking, the advantages and disadvantages of a recipe box, and how ridiculous Canadian prices are! In short, daddy came home, without finishing his errands (I ran around to too many different stores, and Victor was late for classes already.), and I came home, with nothing but grief over my state of affairs. What am I to do now?! I was contemplating giving my folder a makeover and seeing how I like that. (That's what the pictures above are for.)
Recipe Scrapbooking, easy right? Not.! P.S. I'm open to your creative ideas && suggestions!
