Welcome 2016. I don’t know about you, but it seems as though we were just welcoming 2015. I didn’t achieve all the goals I set for myself–I still don’t know how to pull noodles–but I learned a lot along the way. So at least foodwise, it wasn’t a total bust of a year.
Like last year, I’ve set some food-related.blog goals for 2016. In no particular order, they include the following.
- Learn more about Asian cooking. It’s probably my favorite cuisine, and it’s a shame I am not more adept at it. I’ve actually started this one and will be posting about it soon.
- Break out of my breadmaking box. I bake at least one loaf of bread most weeks. It’s usually the same basic recipe with some variations thrown in. I want to be a bit more adventuresome.
- Add more variety of vegetables to my diet. I eat a lot of vegetables, but usually the same ones. That’s partially caused by the lack of variety available in this area. I can combat this somewhat by planting more variety.
- Find new ways to fix vegetables. Just as I eat the same vegetables over and over, I usually cook them the same way. I need new recipes.
- Help people on limited budgets find healthy recipes. I don’t know about you, but food prices are bordering on outrageous here. I mean really–$5 for a head of cauliflower? And families on public assistance often believe mass-produced unhealthy foods their only options.
- Develop more soup recipes. Soup is good food, after all.
- Submit food-related pieces for publication. While I’d like these to be for pay, the exposure is good, too.
- Enter a recipe contest. It doesn’t have to be one with a large prize, but I’d like to be able to say I’ve entered one.
Those are my goals as of today. I’m sure they’ll change. Some will be altered, and some may be deleted while others added. I hope my list inspires you to come up with one of your own.
