Happy 2010

Happy New Year everyone! One of the things I really enjoyed about 2009 was writing this blog . . . 103 entries to be exact! I'm hoping to keep up with it regularly in 2010 and I'm even planning a little give-away soon so be on the look out for that!

What are your food / diet / eating resolutions for 2010? Here are mine:
1) to keep cooking a healthy dinner at home at least 5 nights a week
2) to avoid any food product with ingredients that I don't recognize or can't pronounce (harder than it sounds . . . read those labels!)
3) to begin changing our meat consumption to organic free range poultry and grass-fed beef
4) to support local agriculture where I can (farmer's market and CSA).

I've been wondering why I have no new recipes to share with you all and it's mainly because after the holidays, I've been making old favorites that I've already posted here. This past week, I made corn chowder, BBQ Beef sandwiches, Chili Verde, and tonight I'm making the green soup. I promise to be more creative and have something new soon! I hope you have a happy and healthy 2010.


  1. I have the same food goals. I've already had these goals, but let them slip big time over the last few months. I'm getting back on track and have been making my own old favorites lately. Another of my goals, not consumption-related, but food/cooking-related, is to keep the kitchen CLEAN. As you know I'm not the tidiest person--it's easy for me to just say to myself I'll do it later. But this year I hope to tackle that lazy streak and clean up the kitchen every day. As Fly Lady would say, "Go shine your sink!"

  2. Fine. But, wasn't that last Friday?
    We'll 4give you if your food makes us happy!
