It may seem and little late to start taking about New Year resolutions, but I’ve finally figured them out. Operation 2012 is a go.
The idea behind Operation 2012 (thank you Carla Hall) is that resolutions usually fall by the wayside once January or even February is over. Thinking of your “resolutions” as a full year “operation” keeps you motivated all year instead of just after the new year. Can you dig it?
My Operation 2012 goals are:
- To start using all those cookbooks that I have hanging out in the cupboard. There are 15 cookbooks. I’m currently using two of them. The two binders that I put together and house all our family favorite recipes. It’s about time I break into the Italian and Chinese cookbooks. I haven’t touched AB’s cookbook I got two years ago, sacrilege! The Dessert Lover’s Cookbook, come on. And my step-mom got me an amazing Taste of Home Christmas cookbook this year that I’m already drooling over.
- I’m going to take on five foodie things I’ve always want to try, but have been a bit intimidated to make.
- Homemade Pasta
- Baked Alaska
- Take better pictures of my food. I found an amazing book to help you learn how to style and photograph your food. Maria from Two Peas & Their Pod recommended Plate to Pixel. Maria’s pictures are insane, so I knew this had to be the book to get. I always eat with my eyes first, and I want my pictures to entice you all as much as possible.
That’s it. Operation 2012. Nothing crazy or unreachable, just things I want really want to make happen.
