what i’m cooking this weekend

well, this is what i’m *hopefully* making this weekend. my brother-in-law is helping the mister install some gorgeous hardwood floors, so i get to play with my one-year-old niece (the happiest little girl in the world, seriously). not sure how much i will accomplish with her running around being happily adorable (and adorably happy) but hopefully most of it.

honey oat whole wheat bread

homemade venison broth/stock

italian wedding soup

wild rice and mushroom soup

resolutions

i took my time creating a list of resolutions this year. i had one large list of things that i want to accomplish. then crossed some things off. added a few more.

what i came up with were some great ideas for bettering my marriage, some small things to improve my finances, and a few lists of  new things to do.
