on new years resolutions

so this year, taking into account that i'm 4 1/2 months pregnant and due to give birth in the summer, i decided to take it easy on myself and make only one resolution. one that's do-able. i resolved to try at least one new recipe a week.

theoretically, i can knock off 2 weeks in one weekend because my week starts on sunday and ends on saturday. last weekend, i did a new breakfast dish (canadian bacon and potato hash) on saturday morning and a new dinner recipe (lamb shoulder roast stuffed with ham and mushrooms) on sunday night. it was great. now i only have to do one recipe this weekend. (because, really, weekends are the only time i have to try new stuff)

brian loves all the new food, mostly because i have reached the stage in pregnancy where i have become a raging carnivore and thus, most new recipes under consideration contain red meat.

i've been burned before making new years resolutions that i didn't keep. let me tell you, becoming a working mother really brings reality into EVERYTHING you do when you realize you just don't have to time to do everything you used to, so i tend to be more realistic now when setting goals.

so, this all started because i read this great piece on the morning news about new years resolutions about dieting and it got me thinking.
