“365 Boxes:” Day 35

by | Feb 4, 2023 | "365 Boxes" | 0 comments

Today’s box was relatively easy for me. For my spouse, however, it was a different matter.

Box 35: Saturday, Feb. 4, 2023

CONTENTS: This box contains three-ring binders packed full of recipes that my spouse has collected from various sources stretching back almost 40 years — we were cooking some of these recipes together almost from the first moments when we began to live together. Included in the binders are recipes from newspapers, magazines — and even some from her mother. So it may look like a random collection of recipes, but there’s a lot of history wrapped up here. I didn’t count on all that, because my plan was just to remove the binders from the box and place them next to a couple of other recipe binders we have stashed away in the kitchen.

DISPOSITION: After Diane rejected my stopgap solution (which, in my defense, would have successfully removed another box from the garage), we spent an hour or so going through the recipes. A good number of them went into the recycling bin — but we saved roughly a binder’s worth for further examination — and perhaps will give some of those recipes a try. One of the now-emptied binders is in rough shape and will be headed to the garbage; the others will be donated. The box itself will be broken down and recycled.
