I've realized recently that I have lost my need for any & all things expensive. It abandoned me some time ago in fact. I never experience fancy restaurant envy. Nor do I desire smart, sleek fashionable clothes - my old City clothes still seem to do the job well enough.A natural progression to the downshifting process we undertook 10 years ago.
In the same vein of thought, it's not often these days that I have a burning want for a new cookery book,
save The Voluptuous Vegan, by Myra Kornfeld
Liz at Cooking the Vegan Books often gives me a nudge towards vegan items of interest and recipes that should appeal.
On her recommendation, I've just made The Voluptuous Vegan
Delicious, different, involved & keeping me engrossed in the kitchen.
A winner dish.
