Cookbooks and culinary convenience

Got my copy of Grill Power in the mail from Amazon. I'd looked for it at Borders and Barnes & Noble prior to ordering it so I could flip through it and see if it was something I wanted to purchase, but neither had it for sale. I took a chance on it . . . it's okay. It focuses a little too much on burgers and not enough on more gourmet approaches, in my opinion, but that's my taste, and it was free, sort of (I had a gift certificate), so I'm not fretting. What I do like, however, is the cooking times specifically and clearly listed for each kind of indoor grill on the market. That's a real convenience, to have each recipe tested, rather than you having to do the guesswork of how to adapt something.

Also got my first Schwan's delivery, thanks to goodjoan. It was timely, too: I had no freaking clue what to do for dinner tonight, and voila, there was a bake and eat self-rising crust pizza. Very easy and convenient. I still miss Webvan, and will probably mourn it forever, but this is at least an alternative, and I have to confess that everything being frozen fits into our two-person family very well, indeed. We have to be so careful to use things up quickly and buy in proper quantities to reduce spoilage, and things being frozen removes that problem. Now all we have to do is worry about freezer space. :) Next time, I am definitely going to remember to order some darned ice cream sandwiches. I forgot to do so last time, and I'm craving them! I'm also dying for an Orange Julius, but I doubt that will happen since it's a quarter after midnight. To bed I go. :)
