I’ve decided to make an early New Year’s Resolution. The reasons for this are simple. The first is that I need to get it down before I forget. If I don’t commit it to paper….er, ahem, I mean screen, then it might get lost in the holiday shuffle, or even in my official New Year’s Resolutions list.
The second reason is that it is an entirely doable one, that has a big effect on my Quest for the Better Me. The second reason is that I wanted to write something for the blog, but wasn’t hearing a lot of chatter from my inner voice.
The resolution is that I am going to learn how to make pizza from scratch.
See, I told you, entirely doable. A little bit of googling, a little bit of shopping, maybe even a little help from people on WordPress, and boom, I should be able to knock this one off pretty easily.
What’s the big deal? That’s a fair question. You see, I love pizza. Let me make it clearer, I LOVE PIZZA. Have I made it clear enough for you?
Pizza is my “go to food.” When I am happy and feel like celebrating–pizza. When I am down, and need a pick me up–pizza. When there’s a hockey game on–pizza. I eat it at restaurants, at pizza places, and have pretty much tried every form of frozen pizza known in Canada. There is at least one in my freezer right now….maybe more than one.
Obviously, this doesn’t really go with my reduced carb diet. More importantly, there are probably too many preservatives and salt in it. The Quest for a Better Me also includes a healthier me. As a result, something’s got to give.
So, my idea is to make a healthier pizza for myself. If anyone would like to recommend a website for a good recipe for an easy and healthier pizza, please let me know.
While I am on the subject of food and recipes, I would also like to know how to cook plantains–I’m not sure what it is about them that fascinates me, but for some reason I want to try them, but haven’t got a clue on how to prepare them.
