My goals last month:
I kept my goals simple, and guess what? I met them! I made fermented carrots AND we made Christmas cookies! I made a recipe I like that isn’t too sweet, since the frosting is so sweet on the top. Then I had what I thought was a good idea: I made mini sugar cookies to take with me on Christmas Eve to Kent’s Mom’s to dip into the homemade chocolate fondue I was bringing (along with some other dippers)… Well, apparently I didn’t make it clear that those were only for dipping into chocolate, not to eat plain, because my nephews gave me a hard time about the sugar cookies that “didn’t have a bit of sugar in them”! And of course this always drives me crazy because I’m constantly on a perpetual mission to prove to everyone in both our families, especially the teenagers, that Real Food really DOES taste great, so I hate it when anything I make bombs, and this is not unusual for me! LOL! Not that none of them cook with Real Food, because they do, but you know what I mean. (Most of our family members don’t read my blog, and they still think that the “health food” I write about includes things like broccoli and tofu. Little do they know that I rarely even mention veggies and would NEVER suggest someone eat tofu!)
This month’s goals:
I told you last week about my new job, so my goals for this month are to get better about menu planning ahead of time at least on the nights I work. That’s it. I’m going to keep it simple again, because that’s what worked last month! Also, when I asked my sisters-in-law for their advice as I begin working outside the home a couple days a week, this is what they said:
- Have you meals planned for the days you work.
- Allow yourself some transition time, and don’t try to do too much…
- On the days you work, ONLY work, feed the family when you get home, do homework with the kids, and hang with the family until bedtime, that’s it.
I love that advice, and I’m going to try to stick to it.
Now tell us your kitchen goals for this month?!
