Wow, I’m really getting a lot of blog mileage with the pizza bagels this week. We had four bagels left to use up so I made them again. This time, I topped them with the Vegan Gourmet Monterey Jack Cheeze, soysage, onions, and fresh jalapeno slices. They were very tasty. Rob dropped his pizza bagel while eating it and got a huge pizza sauce stain on his clean shirt. Why am I telling you this? Because for once, it wasn’t me! Just wanted it noted for the record 😀
Here’s a repeat of one our favorite desserts in the spring and summer – Rachel’s Kiwi Sorbet from her Coconut Lime Blog. Caputo’s had a great deal on kiwis…a container with just over 2 lbs. for only $1.99.
Here are some of the books I picked up this past weekend at two different library book sales. I love library book sales because the prices are usually great and the proceeds benefit the Friends of the Library. Both sales I went to had the same pricing structure….softcovers were 50¢ each and hardcovers were $1 unless otherwise marked. Those are my kind of prices! 😀 I only spent $13 for 20 books!!!
Rob spotted the Zabars book. Yay! I love going to Zabars when I visit NYC. I’ve never seen the Culinary Arts Chinese Recipes for the Food Processor book before. It’s from 1978. The book without writing on the front (i.e. missing the dust jacket) is a neat cookbook called San Francisco Firehouse Favorites from 1965.
Can you believe I didn’t own Diet for a Small Planet? Neither can I! LOL. I was really excited to find two different Sourdough Cookbooks. The booklet on the far left in the bottom row has a nifty title: The Impoverished Students’ Book of Cookery, Drinkery, & House Keepery (1967).
On the bottom row, the book on the far left is from The St. Louis Art Museum. I’ve been there before and it’s a really nice museum. The Metro Chicago Almanac is from 1991 so some of the information is outdated. However, it does have a wealth of Chicago history which I enjoy learning about.
The Furniture You Can Make book is from 1971. It has a lot of cool retro furniture projects. Unfortunately, our move coupled with the lack of space in the rental have put our household projects on hold until we can buy here. Hopefully our Michigan place will sell soon. Please keep your fingers crossed for us!
I’ll post some more of my thrifty book finds from the library book sales in my next post.
Hope you have a lovely day 😀
