Taking an Incomplete, Getting an Extension

Today was supposed to be the final day of the 107 Cookbooks effort. By the end of the day I had intended to cook at least one thing from each of the 107 cookbooks in my collection. I didn’t do it. With my writeup of Saturday’s whiskey experiment, I have reached 82 — still a respectable average of more than 6 cookbooks each month, and a higher recipe count since I made full meals from a number of books, but not 107.

I want to complete the list, though. So I’m extending my deadline to Labor Day. That’s still a bit of a stretch, 25 cookbooks in about 67 days, but it’s not impossible.

Once I’ve made it through the 107, I’ll continue with the blog, setting a goal of preparing at least one new recipe per week from any source — the 107 books, the few other cookbooks I have on hand that didn’t make it into the count for a variety of reasons, the year’s backlog of cooking magazines I’ve built up. But until then, I’m going to keep plugging away at the list.
