It's official, it's Christmas in June in our home. The mailman rang the bell this morning and brought me the book Larousse Gastronomique: The World's Greatest Culinary Encyclopedia. I think my first response was shock (it's so thick and heavy), then awe and respect.
Early in May the children received an Astrid Lindgren book package from the brother of my best friend (I blogged about it here) and it turns out that he had ordered this cookbook for me but something went wrong with the delivery. It has been lying in a Belgian post office for quite some time but now it's mine and oh it's gorgeous. I've never had a book like that; I feel like I'm ready to conquer the world or something!
All Mondays should start this way!
Enjoy your day everyone. Now I'm going to wash my floors after all the baking this weekend and then I'm soaking up the sun in 31°C out on the balcony all day, with my new book of course ... all my new books. I love Christmas in June, love it.
