Works-For-Me Wednesday: Kitchen

WFMW15One of my favorite blogs (“Rocks In My Dryer” is the title…I was hooked immediately) hosts a weekly blog carnival of sorts. This week’s topic is the Kitchen. Here’s my tip:

I’ve gone through my cookbooks and photocopied my often-used recipes and organized them in a binder. I use the slide-in plastic pages to keep them from getting goopy from food and so that I don’t have to deal with punching hold in the papers. The result is that I don’t have to flip through pages and pages of recipes I never use just to find one I need to pork chops, or whatever. It’s nice to have them all in one place. When I want to try something new, my books are still available.

Maybe this isn’t such a novel idea, but it’s a great tool for me. I once started doing this by hand onto those little index cards, but whoa, was that tedious. The copier is great. I suppose if you had to drag your library to Kinko’s or something it might be a pain, but we’ve got one here in the house, and I take full advantage of it!

    I do the recipe binder thing, too. They are tabbed by category (dessert, main dish, beverages, etc.) and there is one tab for restaurant take-out menus. đŸ™‚

    BTW – my name is Eva, too. Nice to meet you! đŸ™‚

    Hmmm. I’m still in the 3×5 card thing but I’m thinking about adding a binder. It is the recipes that I pull from magazines that I need to organize. Thanks for the tip.

    Great idea, I have all mine bookmarked on the laptop… if it ever crashes I’m lost!!! I am inspired now to print them off and put them in a binder. Thanks.
    Have a great Wednesday.

    I’ve got the empty binder just waiting for me to tackle it, but it’s tough carving out a free moment with a full time job, and a curious 17-month old!

    I love binders, I posted a binder tip too! Thanks for sharing! =)

My blog. Herein read entries related to who and what is important to me. Feel free to leave comments. I feel free to delete them if I don't like them. So there. By reading about my life, readers should expect to begin to see their own lives as increasingly more organized and sophisticated, their homes cleaner and neater.

Why This Blog?

Well, mostly this is for my family to see pictures and read anecdotes about the kids. It's also a venue for telling the story of my struggles and victories in my life as a Christian, a wife, a mother, and a teacher. Occasionally I toss in some weird or touching item that I've found.

What’s Christianity All About?

The Gospel is the news that Jesus Christ, the Righteous One, died for our sins and rose again, eternally triumphant over all his enemies, so that there is now no condemnation for those who believe, but only everlasting joy. [as said by John Piper]
