thrifting

it is in perfect condition, aside from a tiny bit of warping.

it is in perfect condition, aside from a tiny bit of warping.

last spring i read Julie and Julia and have wanted to get Julia Child’s Mastering the Art of French Cooking ever since. i’m certainly not going to make all of the recipes in it, but i know i’ll be dabbling in the sauces section.

yesterday we went to goodwill to see if there were any treasures there. i didn’t find anything on my list (mini tart pans, pasta maker, gardening shears), but i did find this wonderful book for $4.99! it looks like it has never been used. there aren’t any stains or splatters on it at all. if i’m cooking with a cookbook it doesn’t stay clean for very long.

  1. Great find! Many of my best cookbooks were thrifted (mostly from yard sales). I figure they were unwanted gifts. One of the sayings at our house is, “If there were no gifts, there would be no garage sales!” And you can always tell our favorite recipes, they have the most splashes on that page!

  2. Aww I wish I could get that version of the book! The new one is just horrible!
