I love to collect clippings of recipes from the newspaper, especially ones that have a story attached to it.
For example, I have a funny clipping of a recipe a mother-in-law gave her daughter-in-law who was tired of hearing her husband praise his mother as being a very good cook. Her kindly mother-in-law eventually gave her, the daughter-in-law, a simple but unusual recipe that she eventually became known for among her friends (and she ended having her story printed in the newspaper) because it was said to be very delicious.
Some of the recipes (usually the simple ones) I collect I do try out because I get intrigued by the story I read about it. I want to see if it really is what it claims to be. Some turned out to be a “hit”, others a “dud”–but, at least, I know. As they say, “the proof of the eating is in the pudding”…and I mean that literally.
Well…this is my hobby–quite far from what I normally do as a dentist/Nursing student. A few people were surprised to find out that this is my hobby.
I wonder if other people here also have hobbies that are far from what they really do in their regular jobs.
Anyone wants to share what his/her hobby is?
