New Cookbooks

20 Jul

Last week someone made about $8000 of fraudulent charges on my credit card (and the Citibank guy was able to confirm that it was indeed my card, and not James’) so both of us have to have new credit cards issued.

In the week before our replacement cards arrived I, rather perversely, spent a large chunk of time browsing online for stuff I want.

When we received the cards, my pent up shopping lust overflowed and I bought:

Thai Food (£15.89)

I have Thai Street Food which is also by David Thompson (a Christmas gift from Scott!) and it’s so good that I also forked out for his other Thai cookbook. But that was was mainly an impulse purchase to get free super saver shipping from Amazon UK by spending over £25, and what I mainly wanted was Ottolenghi: The Cookbook (£13.74).

There are a few more things that I want to buy, like a replacement fountain pen, some make-up brushes, a pearl necklace (I don’t know why I thought googling “Asian wearing black pearl necklace” was a good idea), and some new clothes, but this will do me for now. Expect some new recipes when these two arrive! =)

    Ottolenghi was our favourite breakfast place in London. The food looks and taste beautiful.

      Oh awesome! Hopefully there are some recipes in it that you recognise then. =)
