the new year.

I am really not the kind of person that does New Year resolutions. Really. I think it's just setting one up to fail, and if it's important enough to be called a resolution, perhaps you should have thought about doing it back in October or July or whenever you decided you'd make it a New Year's resolution.

That being said, I want to be a better mom, a better wife, a better person, and a better cook.

Who doesn't? But as far as cooking, I've been checking out The Tasty Kitchen, run by the fabulous Pioneer Woman. It's a community where you can post recipes, read them, etc etc etc. I've been getting involved in a few forums lately. The interwebs can be fun. Anyways, so yeah. Cooking.

These look good and easy and GOOD so I might try them tonight. Anyone else try cooking Chinese style food at home? I realize these are appetizers but I honestly could eat an entire meal of just these (and gain a thousand pounds in the process, I know). So, why not start with something I already love?

Crab Rangoons. The only problem I see is finding the wonton wrappers, I assume they'll be in the ethnic food aisle at the ol' Walmart, but we'll see. I also want to get some soy sauce (low sodium), wasabi, and minced roasted garlic to mix for a dipping sauce. Wish me luck!

that first paragraph? EXACTLY. i don't make resolutions, also, because there is a zero chance of me doing something i have TOLD myself to do. i am stubborn like that.

we do stir fry at home, but that's so stupidly easy. i'm kind of scared of good chinese food at home. i just know i'll fuck it up. :(

Just so you (and everyone else) knows, I didn't get my happy ass to the store today, so I am sans crab rangoons. SADFACE.
