I know, this blog is all about what I did in 2010 and what I'm planning to do in 2011. Sorry! Maybe I'm almost done, maybe not.
Regardless, I thought of another resolution today. Well, actually, I thought of it a few days ago but remembered to write about it NOW.
Use all of the gifts that we received from showers and the wedding.
People are SO GENEROUS. And while Pete and I cook every night, we still haven't used everything we received .
Here's what we have to use. Sooner than later!
Giant Wooden Salad Bowl
Meat Tenderizer (we've used it, but not for tenderizing meat...)
Crock Pot (we used it to try to make fondue. It was sad.)
Fruit Basket (I've used it. Since we got back from our honeymoon it's held mementos. But I want to use it for FRUIT.)
Footed Cake Platter
Bar Tools Set
Garlic Peel/Press thing (it's a tube. it's weird.)
And my Target registry got deleted so I can't actually look at it, which is what I did for Macy's and Crate & Barrel.
I'm excited! Seeing all of those things together in a list makes me want to plan meals for, like, the next seven weeks.
Does anyone have any recipe ideas for the cooking things listed above? I've been meaning to make a nice hearty stew these days, since it's so cold, in our Dutch oven. I'd love to hear suggestions!
