time to eat!

ah, one of my favorite phrases.
my mom was organizing her cookbooks the other day (she has a lot) and gave me a few. the pressure is on (in a good way). i really like looking perusing cookbooks, marking the recipes that sound good, and then making the meal. when i have the time, it's very therapeutic and i thoroughly enjoy it. the second photo is my collection of cookbooks...i think i'm all set for the rest of my life.
the last photo is one of my favorite plants. it just hangs out on my kitchen counter and grows.
