It is decided. This will be the summer that I learn to cook. I mean, I can sort of cook now, in that I can read directions and execute them with some success. But I want to really learn how to cook. I think that Pioneer Woman looks like a real jumping off point. Her recipes are fairly easy to understand and they aren't super difficult. I also think that I am going to get some of the family recipes together too, because I like that kind of tradition. I feel like maybe I should learn to can something too, because that's a dying art and my grandma is really good at it. I may even start a sister blog to record my successes (and possibly, my failures too).
I want this summer to be really enjoyed and not wasted away doing nothing. I want to do some family history stuff with my dad, and more photography in general. I just feel like I never really get anything accomplished during the summer other than stuff for work and while that's great and necessary, it's not everything. My goal is for this to be a summer worth remembering, worth celebrating, and sharing. I'm inching closer to my 30s every day and I just feel like if I don't do it now, when will I?
So, brave friends, I'm calling you and your stomaches to my test kitchen and to my summer in general. Let's make this one for the record books!
