A New Year
Jan 26th, 2005

Wow, my cooking has just really fallen off dramatically these days. I keep waiting for life to calm down and me to get back into my routine, but maybe I need to stop waiting and start making it happen somehow.

I have done some cooking - much of it Indian recently. And I have been drinking wine and not logging it here as well. I really do want to start writing things down, because I tend to buy the same wines over and over knowing I've had them before but not remembering if they're any good. And too often the answer is no.

Oh, and I actually broke out the crockpot, only 8 years after receiving it as a wedding gift! I almost forgot about that, see what happens when I get slack about posting here?

Alright, I've made my resolutions. More recipes and reviews coming soon.

I spent a lot of time over the holidays cooking new recipes and, in the process, remembered how much I loved it and how $%#$%# tired I was of cooking the same damn 5 things for dinner all the time. So, I made a resolution to actually do some menu planning every week and buy groceries for specific recipes--at least one new one every week. So far, the whole thing has had delightful results. We're eating more interesting food, there are always yummy leftovers around for lunches, and I no longer have a feeling of dread when we talk about what to have for dinner.

My other triumph was finding an egg-less baking cookbook. It's written specifically for families with an egg allergy, so it doesn't come with any extra burdens (like full vegan-ness) and has everything from banana bread to a cheesecake that is both healthy and tasty. At long last, I can put my baking hat back on without running major science experiments in my kitchen. And Sadie, it turns out, is a fan of blueberry bread and cheesecake. She also likes sticking her fingers in the batter and putting the batter in her hair. For the record, she looks delightful with batter in her hair.

That's great Lisa. It really does help to buy groceries for specific recipes - having skipped that for several weeks now I'm definitely feeling that what to have for dinner dread. I've been sick the past week or so and Jim did the shopping this weekend, which was greatly appreciated, but now I'm staring at the fridge wondering what to make with two packs of bacon and some broccoli.

(Oh, and I'd love it if you ever have the time to post the recipes and descriptions from your Xmas Eve dinner.)
