Cookbooks, so full of vibrant photographs of food that sounds and looks appealing to the eyes and the appetite.
Having not been called yet to come into work for ‘light duty,’
out of sheer boredom I took a tour of one of our upscale grocery stores,
They have everything a regular grocery would carry
plus high end products I don’t find in our regular grocery store of choice,
Winco offers the best prices around,
they are owned and operated by the employees themselves.
But they carry just run of the mill, ho-hum items.
The Metropolitan Market in West Seattle
is a nice spot to kill time
and cruise the aisles looking at all the stuff
I won’t buy because of price.
But it’s fun nonetheless.

In the housewares section,
there are shelves full of baking pans,
tea pots, coffee pots,
cutting boards, measuring cups,
utensils, pepper mills,
table linens, serving dishes
I’ll hazard a guess that they carry nearly as many
and variety of cookbooks
as any local book store.
Here I spotted a line of two by two copies of cookbooks
by the Barefoot Contessa.

Yes, I do watch the cooking programs on PBS
and on the Food Network,
but she isn’t one of my favorites.

My cupboards groan with copies of cookbooks by Marcia Adams
(Cooking from Quilt Country on PBS a few years back)
and Lidia Bastianich, (Lidia’s Italy)
several copies of ‘America’s Test Kitchen,’
and numerous baking books (mostly bread, I love making artisanal breads).

Did I need another cookbook?
Did I want another cookbook?
Did I buy another cookbook?
I just liked them for their colorful dust jackets…
