I ventured into town last week to do some chores and banking. I had not been into town for about five weeks! So I was very conscious it had to be a race around town even though it was Wednesday market day. So I got all my lovely veg etc from the market and did my shopping and banking. I went back to the car to put my heavy bags away and had about twenty minutes left on my parking ticket. So I decided I would pop into the Oxfam bookshop. I'm so very glad I did!
This is what I bought!
Ruth Watson - Something for the weekend with eight around the table! Well I did not save it for the weekend, I made the pearl barley and pea risotto which was great. Some of you may know Ruth Watson from the popular channel 4 TV programme the Hotel Inspector. Its a great book and I quite admire her loathing of vegetarians (even though I have been one for over 35 years!), she has a certain style that is endearing.! I have since found it cheaper on EBay, but Oxfam wins hands down. RRP was £25 it cost me £3.49!
My second great buy was this:
Which is the 50th Anniversary edition of Good Housekeeping the cooks companion. Its great, very technical in places but easy to follow. Once again its cheaper on Ebay, but I love the Oxfam bookshop and I even got to tick the gift aid box on both purchases. This was also £3.49.
So pop into your local Oxfam bookshop to either donate books, or buy them, its a win win situation!
