It’s that time of year again. A new year has come, and like almost everyone, I’ve made a list of resolutions to change my behaviors in 2019. These are but a few of them that I’ve made in regards to food and cooking. We all come into the new year thinking to lose weight and eat healthier, but that's a goal I fail every time. These goals are those I think I can meet, applying to both eating habits and blog.
I had more than one month where I failed to cook my way through the books I chose. I don’t want to fail again. The good news is that I have more than one book on my shelf that still needs review. I want to be able to look back on a whole year not just a handful of months when December comes back around.
2. Grow my kitchen tools collection.
I have my dutch oven and my immersion blender, but I still find recipes where I need new tools and pans. Oven proof ramekins, etc, to help me expand into new and different types of baking: savory baking specifically. I’m eying a pot pie recipe hella hard, and I find myself complaining that I need new stuff to get it done.
3. Eat Out Less.
This one is resurrected every year despite consistent failure. If I can get out of a week going out to eat only once, I will consider it a win. Maybe this will be the year. This week has been a success! We only got pizza.
4. Try new things!
We still fall into a routine with food, even while rotating cookbooks every month. Going forward, I want to make sure that the reverse is true: I will only repeat one old recipe a week instead of only making one new recipe a week. We’ll see how that one goes. It may be hard to keep to once I’m actually in the grocery store again.
