Notebook Twelve - The End!

Thanks for sticking with me as a meandered down memory lane with my notebooks. It's been fun for me. And here we are at the last completed book, Book 12. And this will be short and sweet cause it's Saturday morning and there's farmers markets to go to and coffee for Scott to drink.

It's funny that this book is labeled 12, because it's out of order. From the recipes in here, this one was actually made after book 5 I believe. No matter though.

This one's got a lot of sauces, jams and marinades. Lots of appetizers. And lots of desserts I will most likely never make.

These are the BEST bread and butter pickles ever. I used to make a ton of these every summer for everyone I knew. Fast, easy and delicious.

I will probably never make these, but damn these Lemon Thin Tarts look good. I have such a weakness for lemon desserts.

I chose to try a recipe for Pineapple Chutney to go with our Easter ham. I think this is a Nigella recipe. I really wanted to make the baked pineapple with brown sugar and kahlua recipe I have, but that just seemed too decadent. So chutney it was.

Chutney, meet ham. Next, vanilla ice cream. Ooooooohhhhhhhh.

Ice cream and that chutney would be really good I think. What fun this was seeing the kinds of recipes you keep!!

How have your choices of recipes from these notebooks?
I'll be happy to come for vanilla ice cream and chutney ;o)

Mags, I will definitely be making this again to have with ice cream.

Tanna - I'll let you know when dessert is ready! ;)

I just think it's great that you kept all those notebooks and now you've put them all in order - job done. You've cooked things from them and you know exactly what you've got. That is organisation supreme!

I only wish I was that organized.
The ham and chutney looks so yummy!
