After having finally determined that a) I'm not getting any younger; b) I'm not getting any RICHER; and c) I *still* want 'em after hankering for 'em for over a year at Amazon....
I just pulled the trigger on 5 new cookbooks. "Hot Sour Salty Sweet", "Thailand the Beautiful", "Into the Vietnamese Kitchen", "The Chinese Kitchen" by Eileen Yin-Fei Lo, and "Essential Pepin" by my boy Jacques. No. I don't need them. Yeah, I want them. Actually (caution, rationalization ahead) my Asian library was in desperate need of expansion. I don't think a mid-1980's paperback of Sunset's "Oriental Cooking" qualifies me as an Asian cuisine expert, although it really IS an excellent, if very broad, overview. And who can resist a new Pepin book?
I suppose I could claim the dogs got them for me.....oh, and there may have been an Ella Fitzergald boxed CD set in there as well. What can I say, the dogs like scat singers.
