People say you shouldn’t make New Year’s Resolutions. They say that if your resolution is that important you should start it as soon as possible and not wait for an arbitrary date.
I do agree with this, but then I like having set timeframes that I can measure my progress by. Besides, these aren’t resolutions. They’re just things I want to try and do better this year. Here’s my list of food resolutions for 2013. Some are serious, some aren’t. Feel free to let me know yours below!
- I will not keep buying cookbooks. I have lots of them already (I might break this one)
- I will not keep buying food magazines when I’ve got a folder full of clipped recipes already (I’ll probably break this one, too)
- I will not keep pinning recipes on Pinterest that I never make (I’ll almost certainly break this one)
- Being serious, I’m going to get my cooking mojo back. The past two months have been a storm of frozen pizzas and chips. This needs to change, not least because I can cook things that are way nicer than an Iceland pizza.
- I will get back on Slimming World and lose the three stone (Yup — THREE STONE) I put on this year from ridiculous gluttony.
- I will figure out things that I can have for breakfast other than berries and cereal. Any help with this one would be gratefully received.
- I will go to at least one pop-up this year. Everyone else in London seems to be going to them and I’m starting to feel like the worst greedy person in the world.
- And I’ll go to a restaurant surrounded by foodie fuss, too (somewhere like Duck and Waffle)
- I will make a purée of something, like they do on Masterchef.
- I will understand why you’d want a purée of something like peas rather than a big lovely spoonful of them. Quite honestly, I don’t get it.
- Ditto, but for macaroons vs. meringues.
