Welcome 2010! I’m already off to a slow start with my goals (I’ve recently finished sugary soda #2 for the day). I did master a Martha Stewart recipe last evening. I made herb roasted chicken with shallots and baked potatoes. I have to say that with a small change to the recipe (I used 6 shallots when the recipe called for 16 – which seemed like a lot and was particularly expensive), it turned out really well. So I guess that I can actually read a recipe. It wasn’t one of Martha’s ridiculous recipes, trust me she does have some of them in there, but it was very tasty. I just sent Nate off to the grocery store so I can attempt recipe numero dos – orange-soy pork chops and sauteed green beans. Stay tuned.
Besides the obvious sugary soda slip up, I haven’t exactly worked on my other two goals. Although, I am writing a blog and I suppose I did work on a press release today so I did write more. I have to pick up my first book of the challenge to prove I’ve read more. I also haven’t weighed myself today. I think that would be a depressing thing to do on New Year’s Day. I’ll give that one a go tomorrow. Please forgive me if I don’t divulge my weight on the blog. I don’t think I’m that brave.
