The Thrifty Kitchen

I love cook books. I read them less than I once did. But I always love discovering something extra special and practical. This one has really inspired me. I initially flicked through the pages and went oh, yeah. Nice. But on a closer reading this book, The Thrifty Kitchen is complete with so many practical recipes and tips for using food well and wisely. How to shop, prepare, cook and not waste food. Any book that celebrates leftovers in our culture of waste is inspiring. And Kate Gibbs, granddaughter of Margaret Fulton has a lovely blog if you like following a few fun things.

Today I made these old fashioned Jam Finger Hole biscuits.

And I have taken a lot of ideas away for extra special lunchbox treats.
Where do you get your inspiration for food from?
