I was ruthless...

In preparation of holiday meal planning I went through my collection of recipes and I was ruthless...
 ...and I made a big mess.
But honestly, I had to toss about 50 or more recipes that I would never make.  I gather them from many sources - magazines, cookbooks, the internet, blogs...most of them I really want to make.  Maybe even had intentions of doing so.  But sometimes I think my eyes are bigger than my stomach - know what I mean?  And some of them were years old...
 Afterwards, the remaining cards all fit nicely into my recipe box - not jammed packed in so tight I couldn't get to them.   I cleaned up the box, too, and added a quote from a favorite cook of mine:
Which I think I will do!  
Then I purges my Holiday Planner and got it ready for Thanksgiving and Christmas.  
Inside I keep menus, gift lists, decor ideas, and calendars of holidays past.
Let the planning begin!
