Today I'm making something really easy for dinner... that tastes like way more work than it is. Slow-cooked lamb shanks. I'll post an update with the recipe later this week.
Less is more when it comes to making resolutions, so I only have three this year. Two are somehow related to food and I thought I'd share,
- Save Money. Always a good goal. I want to be less wasteful when I buy food. How will I accomplish this? Meal planning before I go shopping, which means that I'll be buying only the food that I need, and also hopefully eliminate last minute, post-work trips to more expensive grocery stores. I want to keep meat purchases to 1 or 2 times per week, buy more frozen veggies (which are equally, if not more, nutritious compared to fresh), more dried beans rather than canned, and less eating out.
- Run a Marathon. Specifically, the Marine Corps Marathon on October 28th, 2012. And, more specifically, I want to run it in under four hours. Training starts now! I have some mini-resultions to help accomplish this one, like running 5-6 days a week, strength training, and continuing to focus on reducing my intake of refined grains and processed sugars.
Happy New Year!
