Book Finds: Discworld Map & Nanny Ogg's Cookbook
I do love finding bargains in charity shops. These two second-hand additions to my library were an early Yule present to myself when I was supposedly out looking for new gifts for other people. Oh well, you have to treat yourself too - and they were pretty inexpensive.
I'm not quite sure that the Discworld map will have any practical use, but Nanny Ogg's Cookbook is definitely going to come in handy. A friend of mine owns a copy of this already and we had great fun at a party once making strawberry wobblers. I might serve them up for a festive feast of my own this holiday - it should give people a giggle.
Sadly, I won't be able to make Nanny Ogg's gingerbread men because the recipe was censored. [I do love the supposed "editor's comments" in this book.] Apparently it is impossible to find pastry cutters in that shape too... (I bet they would have been better than my attempt at gingerbread angels that looked like upside-down moose heads!)
If you are interested, you can view Nanny Ogg's Cookbook on Amazon.
