Well hello again. I didn’t mean for nearly a week to pass since my last post, (By the way, you’ll be happy to know the fruit flies have been defeated) but I’ve been a busy little bee. My brother’s wedding is fast approaching (less than 40 days!) and the wedding shower is this weekend. I’ve been working on finalizing my responsibilities for that. I’ve also had to step it up with the bachlorette party planning and wedding gifting. Before I know it the day has came and went! I’ve also been rocking a wicked busy social calendar.
I’m sure things will continue to be crazy busy for the next month so if I randomly disappear just know I’m busy running around like a chicken with its head caught off.
About two weeks ago, I mentioned that I was working on a Culinary Bucket List. I really love to cook and try new recipes, but I tend to talk myself out of making new things out of fear that I’ll “screw them up” or “they’ll flop.” The Culinary Bucket List is just like it sounds – as bucket list of culinary adventures I want to undertake. My plan is to document these and post them as I do them. I’m sure I’ll add more items to the list as I think of things I’d like to make. I’ve added a Culinary Bucket List page as a reference point for my list as well as my recap posts.
On to the list…
The Culinary Bucket List
- Make a risotto that doesn’t suck. (I actually did this shortly after I started writing the list.)
- Make a pumpkin pie from a pumpkin
- Get over my fear of making yeast dough
- Bake Whole Wheat Everything bagels
- Can something (& don’t give anyone botulism!)
- Made homemade apple butter
- Decorate a cake using fondant
- Make my own sushi rolls.
- Create a dish of my own – no recipes!
That’s the list for now – short and sweet – but it will be constantly changing and evolving I’m sure!
