In 2008 I have been consumed by a difficult work schedule, one that got me home at 9 pm most nights. As a result I haven’t been able to cook on a regular basis. And I am beginning to have some sympathy for those who fall prey to the allure of packaged food–we’ve had a few Boboli pizzas and more than a few diner meals this year–but I’ve also become doubly determined to get cooking on a regular basis as soon as I can.
That time is finally coming. My work schedule is changing effective Monday, January 5, and I will be leaving work at 6 pm. I was doing some calculations and determined that I could spend a full hour working in the kitchen and we’d still have dinner on the table earlier than I had usually been walking in the door.
So I have set myself a challenge. In January 2009 I am going to make a concerted effort to cook good, nourishing, non-Damned food, and I will blog about it. I will share what works and what doesn’t, and will offer any guidance I can find, and any warnings to help others avoid the mistakes I will inevitably make.
I will be doing other subject posts as well. (Cooking isn’t the only thing that’s suffered from my schedule!) So stay tuned!
Also, the new blog format should allow easier commenting and participation. Now that I own the domain I will be able to do some customization, so please let me know if there are things you’d like to see added.
Happy holidays, and I’m looking forward to a wonderful new year.
