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.
