The long haul
This stretch of winter (mid January through mid March) is always the toughest for me. The cold gray light and the cold are like a one/two sucker punch that leaves me feeling bluer than the normal amount of blue.
But this year, I'm better prepared. I've got my Happy Light, a mid-February pick-me-up visit with family and new recipes on the horizon. What those new recipes are, I've yet to figure out. But this, I know. I am bound and determined to try 10 new recipes in the next 2 months. I find that for every 10 recipes I try, on average, only 2 or 3 are keepers. Hence the number 10. I also find that 5 new recipes a month is a reachable goal for me. Sometimes, I can do much better than that, but if I do, then I will have exceeded my goal.
So if you find a keeper recipe in the next two months, hope you'll share here and help spread the foodie joy!
