Make 10 Things | New Cookbook | @keener1111 is a rockstar

On Saturday, when I was picking up my kids… my Son brought out a wrapped gift with my name on it.  He told me that his friend from school gave it to him for me.  I was confused.  I stood there and wondered how his friend would do this for me.  Also… what was it?  I opened it right away and could see it was a book.  Again… I’m thinking… why would his friend give me a book?

I then noticed it was a cookbook and I could see the blue sticky that said #59/101 and it hit me.  It was from Christine.  Her Son is my Son’s mate at school and I had the opportunity to hang out with her last fall at the Pumpkin Patch.  She noticed my list of 101 things to do in 1001 days and number #59 was to get a cookbook and make 10 things from it.

Challenge accepted.  I have 10 things to make from this book.

1-Corn ChowderThis was pretty yummy.  I found it better on the 2nd day and I would make it again.  It’s a Winter thing for sure!1-20140312-DSC_0002

Update:  This task was never completed and I feel bad.  I still have the cookbook but one day when I get a kitchen of my own… and I pull this cookbook out of the box… I know I will finish this off.  🙂
