Happy new year to you all! As I take stock on this past year, and look ahead to what this one has to offer, I decided that this year I want to dare to fight my fears and create the truly intimidating: simple foods. I have always, though more-than-not foolishly, believed that I can do just about anything I really set my mind to. I CAN learn to install a window. I CAN eat raw cookie dough and not get sick. I CAN build up an immunity to walnuts (bye bye allergies). And this year I WILL:
- Learn to make really, really great YEAST bread
- Can seasonal produce (I feel pretty good about this one after this year’s jam making marathon)
- Grow more in my back yard
- Invite more people into my home
As you might have guessed, I’m not really one for making new year’s resolutions. Nevertheless, tomorrow is another day, and as for me, I hope that day brings gratitude and joy for the simple things.
