I Tried Not To Get Sucked In

I tried, I really really did. But the holiday season got me again. The overall busy-ness, the overeating, the trying to cram way too much work into the last few weeks of the month, the all of it. And here I am on January 3rd, noticing that I hadn’t posted since the middle of December. Gah!

Well, resolution time is upon us. And here are mine. I think I will finally take that damn cooking class I resolved to take last year. There’s one coming up next week, and I want to cross it off my list.

The next is to plan and cook dinner 2 nights per week. I am not talking about throwing a frozen pizza in the oven, I am talking about planning an actual balanced meal 2 nights per week.

My last resolution is to connect with family more than I have. I was looking at all the Christmas cards we got this year, and thought about how nice it is to get handwritten cards in the mail instead of bills and junk. Then one of Todd’s cousins put together a calendar for the year and put every single family birthday and anniversary on there. My goal is to send a card to each family member on their birthday or anniversary this year.

I say bring it on 2011!

Those are great goals. I think you'll like the cooking class. It reminds me that the next time I go see Beth, I have to bring some recipes and my teaching hat. I promised her I would show her a few things around the kitchen that would make meals easy and more likely to be cooked than calling in an order for take-out.

Zion, I am taking a cooking class on Monday the 10th with my friend Heidi and with Todd. Though I question what Todd will learn b/c he's already a great cook.

Oh, and on Tuesday night? I totally made a salad for Todd, some flounder that would have been bad had Todd not rescued them from the oven. We have some leftover parbaked dinner rolls in the freezer from Thanksgiving so I heated those up and nuked up some frozen veggies for me. See? Not so hard. It just takes a little planning.
