Well, it’s the 24th day of January, which seems a bit late to be posting New Year’s Resolutions, but that’s ok. It’s still January. :)
My biggest goal for 2010 is a fun one: I’d like to try making a new recipe every week, for a total of 52 new recipes this year. I love to cook and bake, and despite all the wonderful cookbooks I’ve collected and food magazines I subscribe to, I tend to make old favorites and standbys over and over. I’d like to get more adventurous and try recipes I’ve never made before.
So far I’ve made:
1. Buttermilk Biscuits
2. My Dad’s Pot Roast
3. Chocolate Mousse
On deck for today: Shortbread Cookies.
I will probably blog about many of these recipes, but not all of them. It would be fun to start a blog devoted to chronicling my adventures with trying out a new recipe every week, similar to Julie & Julia. However, with all my other goals (see below), I decided I didn’t need the extra pressure.
Other goals for the year:
1. Keep the apartment very tidy and organized.
2. Learn embroidery.
3. Teach myself Calligraphy.
4. Post more book reviews.
5. Pay off my credit card.
6. Watch more movies.
As you can see, most of my 2010 goals are pretty fun. That’s going to be the theme of the year. I want to waste less time and have more fun, while being more creative. Numbers 1 and 5 will help lower stress so I can focus on having more fun. :) I’ll keep you posted on the results throughout the year.
