I'm not one for resolutions.
Especially those that pertain to food. I have found that outlawing anything gives me a sudden severe craving for the very food I intended to avoid. And that saying I'd like to drop a few pounds is a recipe for the face-stuffing episodes that keep my padded physique, well, padded.
However, I do have a food-related good intention for the New Year to share. (Notice I didn't say resolution?)
I hereby vow that I will stop hoarding food magazines both at work and at home in 2012.
I will not stack them up in corners, next to my bed, under my desk or in big plastic bins. I will not shuffle them around for years with the intention of looking through them again someday. I will not covet the pictures and recipes for more than a month. I will copy the recipes and stories that sound wonderful and I will recycle the remaining pages.
And I will cook those recipes.
What's your new year's food, uh, resolution?
