Not so New Year's Resolutions

Now that we are nearing two weeks into 2009, I feel I can confidently start talking about resolutions for the year. January 1st is just such a ridiculous deadline, and resolutions set for this start date never amount to much, at least in my life they haven't. Too much pressure. 

So instead I pick the 13th this year to start writing more, to discover new recipes, to make some ethical changes to my food purchasing habits and to find a babysitter so that I can go out more.  

Writing more....more in the sense that I'd like to write more seriously, consider submitting something to a magazine possibly, throw around the idea of freelancing. We'll see. 

New recipes...I've already got a jumpstart on this one. So far since we've been back in Logan, Robin has had the pleasure of satisfying his palette with Mushroom and Cheese Phyllo Pie, Hungarian Chicken Paprikash (an old family favourite), Asparagus and Leek Strudel and Mushroom and Pecan burgers. I had some time to pour over my cookbooks last week while the kids were sick and sleeping longer during the day and was inspired to try some new recipes out. Tonight we are having Fennel quiche. 

Food purchasing changes....this one is a little more complicated to explain. I'll save it for it's own blog entry sometime soon. 

Babysitter...I thanked Joe again for helping us out this weekend when I saw him yesterday at the school. And I left another message for a girl down the street that was recommended.

Nothing is quite as exciting as trying a new recipe and it works!
