After creating my mealplanner I felt like I could up the structure some more (especially after missing my first deadline within a week of the launch!) so I decided to start working with the blogplanner I found earlier. I also found a wonderfully basic To-do planner that I am going to incorporate into this binder.
Ever since I was 16 I started having an interest in cooking so I started collecting recipes. Everything I came across I would collect and type out, add a scanned picture of the meal and sort in different courses. Now, 12 years later I have a huge collection of recipes but use hardly any. It was a remark from my brother-in-law that made me turn around on this. He wondered why I didn’t just keep the recipes I tried and liked. So in a moment of cleaning rage I went through all the recipes and made note of the successful recipes, tossing out what I would never make. I was left over with a A3 box full of potential recipes and about 40 keepers. But how could I make sure to limit those potentials?
I have always been organising things – making lists, putting things on alphabet – but somehow I tend to end up in a cluttered environment because I have so many ideas but never the time, energy or means to actually sort things out properly. But last weekend it finally hit the point of no return. I was fed up with the mess on my desk and the idea of starting this blog finally pushed me into action.
