Food resolutions for 2010

I suppose that if I checked in on these midway through the year I would have realized that I was making no progress on them.

Focus on “weeknight” recipes. I get home after 730pm most nights so this has been a tough one – mostly sauteed vegetables, food that Jen brings home from work, or leftovers. Sundays have become cooking/baking day.
Eat less meat. We eat fish at least once per week, and I rarely cook red meat at home. I think we’re doing pretty well on this one.
Learn something about wine. Nope.
Teach Jen to cook. Jen’s output for the year: several batches of rice krispy treats, tacos for my birthday, pasta. She is also pretty good with the toaster oven! In other words, abysmal failure on my part.
Pay attention to dessert. Exceeded expectations on this one, went on a baking craze this summer and finally found a chocolate chip recipe that I can make well.

I also got better at making fish this year.

Will probably carry over a few from last year, but here are some new resolutions for 2010:
Keep the kitchen clean/organized as I cook. Our tiny kitchen is a disaster area, and the mess gets into the dining room as well.
Be more creative. Work with some new ingredients, go beyond the recipes.
Post more recipes. After spending hours in the kitchen, there isn’t always time to document the successes and failures.
