Resolutions Anyone?

Well, it's that time of year. The time of year that you look back and evaluate how the past year went and what you want to do different in the coming year. I know some people don't like to make resolutions but, I DO! To me it's like a new beginning. Yes, I understand that I get a new beginning every day. I just like the thought of the "Big Day". I like anticipation. lol.

 Anyway, this year I have made some really good resolutions. (I want to stick this in here that I don't beat myself up if I don't keep these. So, this is more fun than anything else. :)) This year, I want to make most of my food from scratch. I want to go to the grocery store and just buy the basics. No more $200 grocery bill for only 2 people every two weeks. Especially since we have 2 freezers full of meat and veggies. That's just stupid!!!!!! I don't buying thing like frozen pizza or processed foods. No! I buy things like cheese and soups.(Ok, those are processed. lol) I would buy breads and snacks for Hubby's lunch that he takes to work. That in itself is $50 a week. So this year, I am just buying the basics so that I have to make things from scratch. I'm gonna start making the bread, the snacks, the soups, and hopefully anything in between. I can, I just haven't. Hopefully I will learn some new recipes too!

 Another resolution is for me to DO MORE! Don't waste my time in front of the t.v. I'm gonna turn the t.v. off during the day. I don't like any of the shows anyway. I just watch it because it's on. So, instead of me wasting my life, I plan on turning the t.v. off and turning on adventure! (That sounded like a cheesy slogan for a cruise ship company. lol)

 Another resolution,(I am going to be busy this year!) is just to be more pleasant to people. (Although some are just so stupid you just want to bonk them on the head with a Christmas wrapping tube.)

 And of course, I'll have the lose weight resolution. I made a bet that I would lose 75 lbs buy August. I guess I had better get busy. Hopefully with my new resolutions, It will come off pretty easy. (Ya, right. lol)

 So what are some resolutions that you have made?

 So until next time,

Good luck sticking to no 3 with me around. Lol! I have already informed you I am evil. Oh on the weight thing, been planing out my new kitchen, awesome by the bye, but it got me thinking, we will have to get together to make a months worth of home processed foods in one day. Ok ok. I will tell you about it later. But you know I love baking and the kitchen plans are the perfect bakery. :D
