I'm always a sucker for a used bookstore!!

Thankfully, I'm also a bargain magnet. Today we stopped into our local Books for America store and I found two new cookbooks.

The Tasssajara Bread Book by Edward Espe Brown, 1970, is one I have had on hold for months and months at my local library. SUCH FRUSTRATION. I go to pick it up, and they can't find the book they have told me they are holding. For one dollar, this baby is mine! The other book was, at two dollars, a bit of a splurge.

Vegetarian Express boasts easy, tasty and healthy menus in 28 minutes or less. I figured it was worth a look-see. Recipes such as "deviled tomatoes', 'apples with taffy cream', and 'curried pasta' caught my eye. And the 'seitan stroganoff' also sounds good. It was co-written by Nava Atlas and Lillain Kayte. I have a few other Atlas books on my shelf... still it was the 28 minutes or less that hooked me. I'll have to see if it lives up to that tagline.

lunch... it just keeps getting better!

  • Bento TV

  • I have to say, I'm looking forward to this little online "tv" show. It's bentos bentos and more bentos... (a bento is a little lunch box.... japanese style... similar to the laptop lunchbox that I mentioned earlier.) Bento TV is a daily video blog featuring bento recipes, bento packing tips, and demos of bento making tools.

    bring on the bentos. ;)
