Blaaahhh. Just that tittle makes me sad. Well, kind of. I’ve had three awesome weeks off, where I only got done one or two of the eight million things I had planned to do. It has been nice. But I like the structure of schoolwork. I’m weird. I know.
I’ve got a few photos to dump on you from my new years. I mentioned in my last post that on Christmas Eve and New Years Eve my family has a dinner full of appetizers. This year was tricky, as I’m dairy, meat, and gluten free. But, we managed to do it!!
Look at that veggie tray!!! It’s always my favorite thing because it looks so pretty. and is delicious.
Soooooo much food! We had a veggie tray, crackers and pretzels, pigs in a blanket, meatballs (both veggie and meat versions) spinach dip, bbq tofu, pasta salad, taco dip, and an amazing flatbread that I recreated from a restaurant we had it at while on vacation last summer. I didn’t get any good photos of it, but I plan on making it again soon and posting a recipe for it!
Here is a photo of my (first) plate:
Yum! That taco dip is my soul mate. I’m sure of it. I’m working on a variation of the recipe that uses a cashew based dip instead of the mayo/sour cream layer. Exciting stuff, I know.
My new years eve plans were kind of lame (to some people anyway, I had a lot of fun). I skyped with my best friend who lives in New York and we had a couple drinks via skype, haha. You can call me lame. It’s ok. I’m used to it.
I’ve also had a lot of fun reading everyone’s new years resolutions on their blogs. They’ve definitly inspired me to make a few goals myself. I never tend to stick to new years resolutions though, so I’m trying something different this year. I’m going to make three to five small goals each month. I’m hoping that this will help me stick to them, instead of making a million goals that I’ll have to try and remember all year. I’ve got my goals for January set, and some of them are kind of silly. For example, one of them is to wear a different pair of shoes to work everyday. I have soooo many different shoes, but I always end up wearing my Toms every day. And as much as I love them, they wear out rather quickly.
See what I mean? They need a break. I know that you all wanted to see a picture of my gross worn out shoes.
Another one of my January goals is to try and post to the blog at least twice a week, and to try a new recipe each week. So hopefully I’ll be blogging more often, and have some interesting recipes to share soon!!
Did you do anything exciting on New Years Eve? What are some of your New Years Resolutions?
