Recipe Tragedy

A Tragedy

Okay, so maybe tragedy is too strong a word, but you'll know what I mean once you read this! As you know we just moved. While we were unloading the truck here at the new house, we put out an ice chest full of sodas, juice and water for all of the hard workers. Just so happens, the box that was so nicely serving as the table for the ice chest had THIS in it.........

What is THIS? THIS is my recipe book! (Taking a deep breath, trying not to cry, lip is quivering as I write....) Somehow the naughty ice chest leaked and dripped water into the kind, serving box and saturated my entire recipe book. By the time we knew it, the damage had already been done! Years and years of precious recipes, now mold laden, has morphed into but a scary science project.

So the work begins to rebuild years of cherished meals and desserts one page at a time. I went to the store and bought a new binder along with PAGE PROTECTORS!!!!!! Live and learn, right? The girls and I will sit down and write, type, and print off as many recipes as possible whenever possible, although I'm sure it will take some time. Hopefully, we can remember the recipes that we can no longer read. And if you know me and have given me a recipe, you may get a call soon..........
This was our beloved Cinnamon Rolls with Cream Cheese Icing recipe........

A tragedy indeed, RIGHT???

  1. It is sooo sad!!! The thing I can't get over is that the cinnamon roll recipe, the one we need FOR CHUCH TOMORROW, is the one completely illegible! We have a long road ahead of us.

  6. Bummer!

    Glad to hear you are getting settled, and can't wait to see the pictures!

    No more morning sickness but allergies have set in, so I'm still feeling kind of miserable. I'll get over it ;) My energy seems to be up some, so that's refreshing!

    Tomorrow I have my second visit with the midwife. Can't wait to hear that sweet heartbeat again!!

  7. I'm having heart palpitations on your behalf! Ugh! It's a good thing you'd been so generous in sharing your recipes before, because hopefully people will now be able to give them back to you. I'm so sorry, Candac!
