The Art of Baking Bread
I have been thinking a lot about resolutions, and wether or not I should have any this year. I'm never very good at resolutions. I cannot think of a single year where I have carried out my resolutions past January. (I am much better at using Lent to reform my bad habits. Which is a bad habit in itself.) The only resolutions I've ever managed to keep are the small ones that are hardly worth mentioning.
Mambo told me last night that she wrote down ten things she wanted to accomplish this year, and that got me thinking. What about making a short list of things I want to have done, but never have, and make it my goal in 2012 to tick some of those things off the list?
Probably #1 on the list would be to bake bread from scratch. I am completely intimidated by this, because I really know nothing. I'm glad Kinfolk and Tiger in a Jar are here to help me out.
