Dear Fickle Fanny,
What is one of the best books you've ever read that changed how you lived?
What a wonderful question. One of the books that changed my life was, "French Women Don't Get Fat."
So while I was looking on their Facebook page the other day I saw where someone had commented on the page about a cookbook called, "The Little French Kitchen." So I began to dig and what I found was a lovely treasure, a diamond in the cyber rough.
French inspired cooking from a tiny kitchen in Paris.
I am inspired.
From the cooking channel website for Rachel Khoo I copied a list of what every little french Kitchen should keep stocked in their pantry:
Canned Whole plum tomatoes
Canned & Dried Beans and Lentils
Rice (long grain white)
Dear Fickle Fanny....
Are you going to purchase these items for your pantry?
Yes, I am. I love the idea of a well stocked pantry. And since my little cottage has one this will be a wonderful list to work from. I also plan on purchasing this cookbook once the snow melts.
One more little note. My favorite thing about the book, "French Women Don't Get Fat," is that you keep a food journal, you walk everyday and once or twice a week you do Ballet or something like it. Eat well, eat a lot of many different things, eat whole foods made from scratch, eat at home, invite others to share your table and enjoy your life. It is a beautiful gift from God.
