Are we starving or what?

No, we're not starving, but we have been eating pretty lame lately during the week.  How's about some spaghetti with marinara for dinner?

Wondering where the latest and greatest next meal will come from? [Me too most days!]  Here's a teaser... Emily tipped me off that Amazon Market sells used books for $0.50 and up! Wha-huh? The catches are the shipping is $3.99 per book and books ship at book rate which can take a week or longer.

I got four vegetarian cookbooks at a buck each. [that's $5 per book if you don't have a calculator handy]  Nice! Two have already arrived and I dove in and have many recipes I wanna try. NOW!

Ok, I know what you're thinking and yes, guilty as charged!  I totally bought two pizza cookbooks as well.  One for full-price no less (Only $13 though and free shipping so sue me).  Details to follow as I get those books.  Here are the books I bought.  Happy Birthday to me!

  1. Wow, we had spaghetti with Marinara sauce last night! :) Guilty as charged!! Didi Emmons' book is my absolute favorite!! For a penny I might have to get myself a new (used) hard copy since my paperback copy has fallen into two pieces it's been so well loved. :) Keep us posted on what you make!!

  2. Happy birthday to you. Excellent choice of presents for yourself. How did you know what you wanted?

  3. @Doodles Cookbooks are always a hit with me! (as you know)
    @Em I'm loving Vegetarian Planet! Way cool recipes. Now, if only I could find some time to go grocery shopping AND to make these yummy looking recipes...
