I knew how big it was. I'd read counts of 2000+ recipes (but that
must include the numbered lines of the hollopotrida, capiritada
recipes separately, I counted each recipe as a whole). But it was
hard to judge how far I'd gotten, each section is numbered
separately, and there are about 130 sections.
I've worked on it for 5 years, but that includes several breaks of a
year or more, where I didn't work on it at all. I'd been saying it
would take 2 more years to finish. I translated about 300 recipes
last month, so *if* I can keep up the pace of 10 recipes a day, I
could finish in 3 or 4 months. I actually find that very
Having put this much effort into it, I really want to see it finished.
