It is hard to believe that 2011 is here. I remember all the hub-bub surrounding Y2K. Remember how the banks were going to get everyone’s account numbers mixed up and airplanes were in danger of falling from the sky at the stroke of midnight! Crazy how this decade has gone by. Frankly, I am glad it is over. I am ready for a new start and new goals.
One of my goals is to get out of my cooking rut. I don’t know if it is just me, but I really am ready to either hire a personal chef, which is totally out of our budget, put out a large feeding bin of dry cereal and have milk on tap or try something new, which is exactly what we are going to do.
Amy and I are armed with the newest Rachael Ray cookbook, a new olive oil drizzler and the ambitious goal of making one new recipe a week. Let the sauteing and simmering begin!
Another goal I have is to encourage people to check out my new weekly blog. In honor of my cooking goal and blogging goal I am having a drawing. I will be giving away an awesome-hot off the sewing machine- apron I made. All you have to do is either post a comment or become a subscriber- it is super easy. If you do both I will enter your name twice! I will post the winner on January 31st.
Setting goals can be exciting. Even if they are not fully attained, it is better to set and strive for something that stretches you than to aim for nothing.
What is something you would love to learn or do in 2011? Write it down and start toward it!
