Louise has started a new thing: Cookbook Wednesday! I decided to try participating, although I don't have exciting cookbooks like hers. My first entry ties into a celebration we're planning hereabouts.
This is my New York Times Menu Cookbook by Craig Claiborne. Jeffrey found it at a used book sale a long time ago, easily 10 to 15 years ago, and insisted that I buy it.
As you can see from this page, good old Craig list menus for every occasion, celebrations on this page. Others include breakfasts, luncheons, holidays, parties, etc.
So what's so special about this page? Who saw the movie Meet the Fokkers? Yes, the Fokkers are coming to my house. Shannon and her longtime boyfriend are officially engaged! His parents and grandparents wanted to meet us, we are hosting first the mother's side, then the father's side, likely Friday and Saturday of Thanksgiving weekend, for an early (3 to 4PM) dinner. Now, to figure out what to cook! Doesn't Craig's engagement party menu look good? Of course, there's another menu cookbook in contention; you'll have to wait until next week to see it!
Happy Wednesday, everyone!
