Hey there all,
I hope you had a great Christmas holiday. I had a nice one . Lately it has been slightly busy though. Some nice news I'd like to share is that my new years resolution of last year was done for the entire year . We (my girlfriend and I) managed to stick to it and not give up.
We made a new recipe every week. Something we never made before. Sometimes we got them from the internet. Other times from cooking books or friends. Since at the university a lot of international people are working it was fun to ask around what people were cooking and then make something similar. We cooked some Japanese dish, Indonesian, Chinese, Russian, Peruvian, Moroccan, Italian and probably some other countries I am forgetting to mention. It was a nice journey and I can certainly advice it to anyone that likes cooking or just want to gain some more cooking knowledge
Upcoming year we will still cook a lot of new dishes but we will be a bit more relaxed and also allow ourselves to cook something from the already existing list (we wrote all the dishes down fortunately).
Another new years resolution is that we will take a hike every 2 weeks from a book with nice hikes. Not that physically demanding (the Netherlands is flat....) but still nice I think. Do you have any new years resolutions?
On another note: I started a new hobby I wonder how long I will do it but so far I've been liking it. Its embroidery . My girlfriend gave me some materials to start and a pattern (made from a fractal ->
<- the biggest loonie ball cropped). I really wonder why not more people do embroidery. It's rather simple (even can do it ) and also relaxing. Its fun to see the progress and how the picture is popping up Have you ever considered doing embroidery?
btw. I will certainly upload it when done
Greetingz and ah yes also happy new year
