Now that year 41 is coming to an end, it seems ambitious to have set the goal to try 42 new recipes. Looking in the archive, I only have about 20 blog posts. As the girl says “FAIL”!
Part of my failure comes from my lack of recipe following. I often adjust depending on ingredients in the cupboard (daily trips to the market are not in my genetic pool). So I didn’t want to post my version, but rather the original recipe as intended. But without knowing exactly how good the real recipe was, I didn’t want to publicly endorse the recipe.
Another part comes from only wanting to post the very successful recipes. Only ones I wanted to eat again. And looking though the archive, almost every recipe has been made at least twice. (Accomplishment hidden in there).
Regardless of my excuses, I know I didn’t attempt 41 new recipes. That is almost one a week. And that is a lot to fit in the weekly meal planning for me. I know I did eat more than 41 new dishes…and likely enjoyed close to 41 new dishes. I also know that as I find a recipe to share, I will blog about it (I am finding that is an easy way to also keep track of recipes).
Now, what do I do for year 42?
