I am making a challenge to myself partly inspired by "Julie and Julia", which I haven't seen yet but really want to, but mostly as a goal/challenge to myself.
I am going to cook something new once a week. I want to do this partly to expand my cooking/recipe/food repertoire and partly because I have some great recipes I want to try but never seem to get around to. And also because it will be good to cook in my kitchen more.
I have some cookbooks, online recipes, and good meal ideas from friends and family that I have been wanting to try and I think that this challenge will give me the initiative I have been needing. I also recently subscribed to "Everyday Rachael Ray" and I want to try those recipes. This self imposed challenge will give me the "get up and go" I need to get cooking.
I will make dinners, deserts, drinks, appetizers, whatever sounds good that week and fits into the schedule and then I will blog the recipe, the cooking experience, the result, and the reactions.
I am pretty excited about this.
It starts next week. Probably Wednesday night, probably start with a dinner.
My apron and cooking utensils are ready and SO AM I.
