New year equals a pineapple theme I guess.
In 2014, I challenged myself to something new: I would be sure to read at least 3 new books a month and I documented that here for all to see. I read 52 books this past year, consciously always trying to have at least one or two going. I haven't done that in a long time. Accomplishment is my favorite feeling. I'm going to keep reading as much as I can in 2015 and you can follow me on Goodreads here. However, I thrive under accountability and so I’m going to challenge myself again, but in a new way.
For 2015, I will post one new recipe each week. Let’s back up….do you know how many recipes I’ve posted since we’ve moved to Colorado? Not many. I went through them the other day. It’s less than a dozen. We’ve been here 7 months. Not acceptable.
The truth is that I’ve been lacking in creativity for about a year. Missouri happened. Then Colorado/remodeling. The two are synonymous to me: Colorado and remodeling. Truthfully, I need some kind of inspiration. And inspiration in my case usually comes through cooking or baking. I should preface this with the fact that if I did not have a full time job, I would gladly attempt a new recipe every day. I would welcome that challenge. I think it would be fun and creative, but I do have a job. And it takes up a lot of time. So I’m going to settle for one new recipe a week for 2015. I had my reading goal in 2014 and that equaled out to a book a week…I can post a recipe a week in that case, right?
If you’ve been following along for a few years, you’ll remember 2011. I posted a recipe almost everyday. It made me happy. Some of them were adapted recipes and most were original. Then deployment hit and I stopped doing the food thing so much. However, it brings me real joy so I feel the need to push myself this coming year. Persevere and all that.
I’m a goal-oriented person. I like checking things off of lists and following through on commitments. My book thing makes me really happy because it was a resolution I actually stuck to….(December books will be posted next week, by the way!)
A new recipe. Every week. For a year. Recipes will be posted on Mondays.
