This picture pretty much sums it up. I have packed away the rest of my cookbooks, divided into “pack away until the fall” and “do not open but leave accessible”–because after all 3-4 months is a long time, I might need that cookbook devoted entirely to potatoes!
Actually I wished I had that cookbook just last night when I was trying to decide how to use up my baby redskins before we move. And you thought I never used my cookbooks! (Or you are just like me and you know I do).
Anyway, this is what is left, the essentials–although I have a few more squirreled away, either in the kitchen being used or by the computer being typed from, that are not pictured here. Here’s to hoping I find space for them in the holdover house and that packing everything else was as easy as packing the “less used” cookbooks.
More recipes coming soon….

When we moved I packed up ALL the books and thanked the heavens for food blogs 😉
Looks like a good selection! I appreciate being able to click on the picture so I can actually read the titles!
that girl: For a regular move I would too but since this is right down the street AND since we need to move again in 3-4 months, I felt it might be worthwhile to separate out what I cannot live without. And oh yeah I DO have a problem. 🙂
Joe: I realized afterward that you could sum me up very easily: I must have some Indian, SE Asian, Mexican and baking books. Everything else got packed. 🙂

Oooh, I’d have a hard time parting with any of my cookbooks for a few months. You never know when you’re going to need one! Good job culling them!
