If you're participating in the 52 Weeks To An Organized Home Challenge, you already know that this week is Recipe Organization Week. This is going to be a tough one for me. Not because my recipes are unorganized, but because I have a lot of recipes. My problem isn't really with all of the family favorites that I cook on a regular basis, but with all of those fabulous looking recipes torn out of magazines, my "To Try Someday" recipes.
I keep them all nice and organized in this little folder:
But check this out:
That's just the "Main Dishes" section. I'm pretty sure there's hundreds - the picture doesn't even really do it justice. And the problem is, they seem to go into the folder, but never come back out. So I've issued myself a challenge - I have to choose at least 1 recipe at random each week and either make it or toss it. Hopefully this will turn my "collection" into something functional and usable.
This week I actually pulled 3 recipes out (and tossed 2). I will be making - Sweet Potato and Gruyere Turnovers, Morrocon-Style Turkey and Chickpeas, and Turkey & Bacon Waffle Sandwiches. Yum!
