Scooping Perfection…Next Week

…H, I, J, K, L – woohoo! The L’s are over here!

Lawson… Lee… – Good GAAAAWD who thinks they’ll sell this many Sandra Lee books – Lee Brothers, Li – wait. Where the heck is Lebovitz?!

More than entire shelf of Aunt Sandy’s books (in just that section – there were other sections, too) and not a single copy of The Perfect Scoop. They don’t make bookstores any bigger than this in a state better than this one… what is this world coming to? Grrrr!

I’m an instant-grat kind of girl so I hate waiting for anything. Everything. The second I swipe my AmEx, I expect to sit in the passenger seat of my car giddy with excitement as I flip through page after page of inspiration while Jason turns on the radio to drown out all the OOoohs and AAaahs.

But I will wait. I have an excitement for homemade ice cream like never before but I’ll wait. I’ll put on my big girl panties and quit whining – then I’ll buy the book online and I’ll wait. I wanted to find a ridiculously rich chocolate ice cream from the book to post the homemade “Napoleon” ice cream trifecta this week but I’ll have to wait. But I ain’t gonna do it patiently like an adult should :P

David shared with me that Williams Sonoma is doing a huge promotion. Sure enough, that is where I snagged my copy after traipsing all over town with no luck. I’m OBSESSED with it now!

Are you taking one of his classes at Central Market in early June? You should!

Unfortunately, “Aunt Sandy’s” books are flying off the shelves all over the country. (I personally just call her “Slop”.) In many cases her books, along with the Ray-Ray bombardment have taken over where other authors should have taken center stage.

Hopefully this “phase” in cooking will pass, and soon.
