I’ve been dreaming up all sorts of fun goals for 2012, and I thought I’d share some of the food-related ones I’m particularly excited about right now.
My Sissy gave me a giant stone crock for Christmas, of the sort one makes sauerkraut in. I’ve made kimchi before, but somehow it had never occurred to me to make my own sauerkraut. Thanks to Sissy’s prescience, that is an oversight that will be corrected immediately. More on this topic coming soon!
I also have a spaetzle maker and a gnocchi board practically hopping out of the pantry and begging to be tried out.
We’ve renewed our periodic hunt for the best hamburgers in Seattle, with a lineup of several new places to try. I’m looking forward to reporting on the results of our diligent research.
We are also on the quest for really good ramen again, trying some local Seattle joints in hopes of finding a ramen-ya that measures up to our experiences in Vancouver.
We’ve signed up for a cooking class called Night Markets of Bangkok. With a name like that, how could it not be good?
And I’m eagerly looking forward to attending Blogher Food conference, here in Seattle this June. There’s nothing quite as energizing as getting together with a bunch of fellow food bloggers to learn, eat, drink, and get to know each other.
I’m sure a few more food goals will make it onto the list before long. A new year is like a beautiful package that will be gradually unwrapped to reveal the gifts nestled within. I’m enjoying the anticipation right now—and looking forward to sharing the journey with all of you as 2012 unfolds.
Do you have any goals for 2012 you are really excited about? I’d love to hear from you!
