It's a little late to be spouting resolutions, but I'm going to lay it on you anyway. I made two. They are big as hell, so sit down.
Number one, I'm going to start dressing sexier. You weren't expecting that I bet. In Colorado, most women dress very poorly. Sorry girls. It's true. We are utilitarian. We are sporty. Collectively we need help. I vow to wear more high heels and skinny jeans. Done and done.
Number two isn't even about me, so I don't feel too terribly convicted, but I'm going to try to encourage. I thought it would be fun if everyone in my family came up with their own signature dish. Easy, difficult, sweet, savory, no matter...it just has to be 'your own' and you have to be able to prepare it, start to finish, all by your lonesome.
Lewis jumped right in with a perfect 'ten year old boy' recipe and he wanted me to share. It's fun, simple, and quite tasty.
Check it out...Tiggy's Rollo Cookies
pre-heat oven to 200.
A bag of Rollos
A bag of small twisty pretzels
Lay pretzels on a cookie sheet and top with Rollos. Put in oven for 3-4 minutes. Take out and immediately smush a pecan into a Rollo, pushing it down flat into the pretzel. Our pecans were toasted, but this is not necessary. Let cool and eat! So easy. Lew has made them twice already...they don't last long around here.
His other goal is to make a lasagna that tastes 'just like that frozen kind, not like home-made.' I'll get back to you on that.
