Do You Remember Andy Rooney?

He always had such great suggestions about life. He had a great sense of humor and always had some wise advice. I came across this earlier today and thought that I would share it with you. He said something like this: Isn’t it ironic that “the biggest seller is cookbooks and the second is diet books – how not to eat what you’ve just learned to cook.” It’s really true though. I often go to book stores and there are lots and lots of cook books and diet books. And they are BOTH big sellers. I had a big collection of cook books and gave them all away. My daughters-in-law took most of them. I rarely need a recipe for anything that I want to cook. But, newlyweds need some help at times, I guess. Of course, now you can get recipes for everything on the internet. It makes me wonder why women still buy cookbooks like they used to? Or do they? What do you think?

Andy Rooney signed off 60 Minutes in 2011, which is the last time I watched the show. His few words at the end of the shows were something I looked forward to each week the show aired. I don't buy many cookbooks today, as can find so many recipes online and don't look at diet books at all.

Cookbooks can be very helpful. Sometimes its FUN to try out a new recipe. I used to introduce a new recipe to my family at least once a month. IF they liked it, I would remember to prepare it again and if they didn't like it, I would cross it off the list.
