Chicken Dynasty (WW International Cookbook, 1977)
For this week, since I have been struggling a little with getting over my 30 pound mental hurdle, I have been trying to make more recipes than just one a week. It gives me a project - a couple, actually, since there's the meal planning, the grocery finding, then the actual cooking and eating, followed by blog writing. It's not only healthy for cooking, but for my brain I think - it's a good task to keep myself busy and keep my mind on something that pushes me in a positive direction with my goals.
I have a lot of old cookbooks but I'm always looking for more, especially when I find a good deal on them. I'm part of a Midcentury cooking and food group on Facebook also so when people share some of their Internet, thrift store, or estate sale finds, I like to try and find some of them for myself . Recently I went on eBay just browsing for some of my favorite categories (vintage WW and BH&G hardcover cookbooks), and found a few exciting new additions for my shelf. Most have arrived, I am only waiting on a bit of a crown jewel for my collection: a set of WW recipe cards.Not gonna lie, I was very excited to dive into this WW cookbook from the late 70s. "International cookbooks" tend to promise big but fall short in their diversity - they rarely stray from Italian, Mexican, and various cuisines they lump together in a vague Asian category. But this one has a lot of different categories, with salads, soups, entrées, desserts, and drinks from each.
