Finally, the tree is down and the decorations are put away. Well, all but the last three that were way stuck in the branches and the Christmas bear in one of the kids' rooms. It's time to get organized for the new year, make some resolutions, and start some projects. I love projects and this year is going to be awesome. In fact, I'm so inspired by my latest project that I find it difficult to sleep or think about anything else. I'm making plans in the shower, doing dishes, folding laundry, driving carpool.
So, yesterday, I cleaned out my binder, planned my calender for the next 4 months, and organized my bills and put 2011 away. Today, I did a menu plan for the next 5 weeks and worked on the next Fork & Pint newsletter. I'll post and update weeknight dinners menus this evening.
And now, since I have that stuff under control, I can talk about my new, super exciting, bucket list project... hatchpress. Go to the site and take a peek. We're still under construction but you'll get an idea of what we're working on. It's one of those things that you talk about forever and never get around to the doing. Well, this year... we're doing it. Why not? What are we waiting for anyway? We're writing a cookbook and kitchen guide. We realize that it's a lofty goal, getting published and all. But, other people do it so why can't we?
My best friend Brooke and I, you may remember her from our Summer Mother/Son campout shenanigans, are both foodies and we're in love with our families. We spend our days make making food and organizing kitchens for other people, and even make a bit of money doing so. We have over 30 years of home, family, and food know how between us. And now we're writing it all down to share. So, for now my foodie posts will be mostly written over at hatchpress.
