Earlier this month I talked about a few organizational projects I had going. One of those was culling the vast amount of books I have hoarded over the years.
That’s fiction, non-fiction, biographies and yes….cookbooks. I collect them and have an unhealthy obsession about bringing more cookbooks home. Well, I have a good start on going through the packed bookshelves which spill over in chaotic piles. I pull one book off the shelf and prepare something – then I decide if the book stays or goes to live elsewhere.
The Culinary Journey to the Mediterranean is book #3 in my Cookbook Countdown. This one won’t be put out of the house as it’s chock full of delicious and healthy fare. We’ve had several meals from this one and have enjoyed them all. The Espana Chicken is highly recommended.
This time we prepared the shrimp and pasta. It’s a summery type meal and one we enjoy when the weather is steaming hot. Fall may be around the corner for some parts of the US but not here. Today our heat index topped at 111 F (44 C ) – not fun. It’s certainly not patio weather so our meals have been taken inside.
This is my third book in the Cookbook Countdown hosted at Kitchen Flavours.
I am also sharing this with Beth Fish's Weekend Cooking Series.
