Happy New Year

Happy New Year, everyone!

Here are some resolutions for you for the new year. Make them because I told you to.

1. I will not serve frozen chicken nuggets without prior approval from June.

2. I will try at least one new recipe a week.

3. I will not attempt to bake anything in my microwave, because it is stupid. And also because it heats unevenly, denatures proteins, and turns baked goods into sponges.

4. I will serve dinner made from simple, fresh foods at least three times a week.

5. I will listen to all cooking advice June dispenses and not argue with her, because I wouldn't want to risk pissing her off. Or being uninvited to any of her dinner parties.

My family is going to a New Year's Eve party tonight like many of you are as well. I made this simple salmon spread earlier today. It will be fabulous by tonight and everyone will think I am a genius. Really, I'm not. I just know how to search out good recipes. Happy New Year!

How about some stir fry recipe, sauces? Has Meg picked a date yet? I've been asked to cater a couple of weddings. Also do you have any salmon glazes, I need some variety thats already been tested. Thanks

Hi June -

I've been following your blog since New Year's, but just now hooked up so I could comment. I love this list, and I agree with most of it although I admit to having nuggets (and hotdogs) in the freezer for those nights Wilson just won't touch anything else. I could let him go hungry I suppose -- but it makes me happy to feed people, so I can't really. Looking forward to more WWJD advise!
