I said that I was going to write my resolutions and directions today, and I will. I'm not great on the keeping the resolution thing but I think that making them is important - keeping yourself on track and all that. Last year, my big resolution here was to make 6 recipes per month from the year 2005's issues of Everyday Food. While I didn't make it, I did make a pile of new things that were yummy. I have more years of EDF that are wildly under used. Likewise, there are a couple of things that I'd like to do for me that fall into the food vein, and one things that has a lot to do with my house, but little to do with food.
To that end, I present this year's resolutions:
- 6 Recipes per issue of Everyday Food from 2006. I've already marked the recipes from Jan/Feb. Beyond that with the blog, I'd like to post new content Monday, Wednesday and Friday plus weekend planning. I also intend to continue with Pintertest Kitchen.
- Stop drinking pop. 2 years ago, I started down this road. I lost weight. Fast. It was shocking. Then I backslid and started again. Maybe it was the bubbles, maybe it was my genuine love of gingerale, but I started drinking it again. Pop is liquid candy. I need to stop.
- Eat breakfast. I don't do this daily, usually because I stay in bed too long. But with a job that doesn't allow me to eat regularly, I need a better start to the day. I've been looking at baked oatmeal. We'll see what happens.
- Finally, I've signed up to do 365 Spring Cleaning. I'm sucky about cleaning and thankfully have a spouse who can't see the dust as well as I can. I'm hoping to at least do some of my scary clutter areas in a way that makes sense. The first project: Organizing my office by January 31.
