February!?

What? When did this happen? How is it February!?

In some ways, January dragged. It will do that when you live in northern Indiana, and the sun is a hot commodity. Quite literally: hot, but also a rare commodity. In many other ways, refer back to paragraph #1: “What?….”

I didn’t make any goals for January specifically, because…well…I have no good reasons. I just didn’t. It was still a great month!

For February, I have 28 precious days of winter-ness to:

  • Cook 3 new dishes. Including lasagna and spaghetti carbonara, and mac and cheese. February just scream “pasta dish” to me!
  • Celebrate the birthdays of my wonderful roommates
  • Travel: Winter Carnival! Washington, DC!
  • Finish memorizing the Beethoven movement I’ve been working on. It’s high time. This goal has been in the works since Thanksgiving.
  • Send 4 thank you cards.

It’ll be a good month. I can feel it. Right now, Indiana is battening down the hatches in preparation for an epically amazing snowstorm that’s headed our way. Bring it.

Maybe not quite that intense….

    • I recommend quinoa pasta – its made of quinoa flour & corn flour. Its highly delicious, tastes great in soups, is high in protein and doesn’t get that sticky, rice-papery substance everywhere. I find mine at health food stores.

  1. I feel like winter carnival has a mythical quality to it in my head from all you’ve told me about it. While talking to the Apple tech guys, I met a guy who does ice sculptures and he goes up there to do them! πŸ™‚

    Anyways, I’m commenting to suggest a recipe, if I may. Martha Stewart has a TASTY mac n’ cheese recipe (with a history section on it to boot). But I’d suggest you sub panko for the bread crumbs…

    Can’t wait to see you in a week’s time!!!

  2. Rachel – my aunt has a famous mac & cheese recipe. Probably not as complex or sophisticated as Martha – but I could LIVE off of this stuff in the winter.

    Let me know if you’re interested =)

  3. How did I miss this adorable post? Thank-you notes rock, as do posts about goals. Winter is the time for pasta and tomato sauce in all forms. It just is.
