Welcome, 2011

It’s so full of promise, isn’t it? A chance to start fresh, a whole year stretched out before you, filled with possibilities and hope.

I used to make grand lists of all the things I’d like to accomplish in a year, but this year my list is far smaller, and more meaningful. As far as food and cooking resolutions go, we’ll make meat. We’ll keep canning. Once our holiday leftovers are gone, we’ll work on some version of that cleanse everyone is talking about. I want to make tortillas from scratch, and tamales, too, just like grandma used to make. I want to cook for my family, not just Mike, but the family we’ve been away from for far too long. This year will be about living more simply, and moving toward the next phase of our lives, surrounded by family and friends, sharing meals and more every chance we get. I can’t wait to get started in earnest.

I wish you all a happy, healthy, and fulfilling 2011.
