My food blog might seem like a strange place to post New Year’s resolutions. But it just so happens that a few of my resolutions are food related! Apparently when you think about food as much as I do, you can’t help but set goals So just in case these are of any interest to anybody, here they are! (and in case they’re not, I promise a new (easy! healthy!) recipe is coming soon)
1. Have company for dinner once a month.
I would like to get better at hosting people in my home. Cooking for anybody other than Mike tends to stress me out, but I’m trying to get better at it. It is a Biblical command to be hospitable, and it’s something I’m trying to improve at. I’d love to be able to share my journey with all of you. I’m thinking of posting my menu plans, how it worked out, what the prep work was like, and how well I was able to make our guests feel welcome, as opposed to simply worrying about the food! Would anybody be interested in that?
2. Eat at least 5 servings of fruit and vegetables a day.
I set the same goal for myself last year, but with 4 servings. I did pretty well, and I think I can add in an extra fruit or vegetable each day. Hopefully you’ll see some more healthy recipes on here as a result.
3. Get better at cookie decorating.
I made the above cookies for my future sister-in-law while I was home in Pennsylvania for Christmas. I don’t think I mentioned it on here yet, but my brother is engaged and they’re getting married in July! I’m so excited, and of course I took the opportunity to try out some new cookie decorations. I think they turned out pretty well. I still have a ways to go before they look professional, but I’m pretty happy with my progress. Between Mike’s sister getting married soon, and my brother after that, I’ll have plenty of opportunity to practice decorating wedding cookies.
I’ll let you know if I come up with any more, but these were the ones I’ve been thinking about over the past few weeks.
Feel free to share your New Year’s resolutions (food-related or not) in the comments!
