So my resolution to swear more is not going well in real life. But! It is going well in my blog life. I've decided to settle for that since the children still are too young to go around sounding like sailors.
In other resolution news...
I've added one other resolution. Yes, I know I said I wouldn't do the resolution thing but it is FUN and ENTERTAINING for me. So, leave me alone about the whole 'no resolutions' thing.
Drum roll please...
My new resolution is frying our food.
Yes, it is. At a time where most people are resolving to eat healthier, I've decided to try frying our food.
Now to be honest I've never fried anything before.
Until last night.
And I know you are wondering why I should try such a thing - well, Rachael Ray told me to.
I got her new cookbook for Hanukkah and I've been trying recipes with wild abandon.
And the truth? Although not the best for losing weight, the kids are eating them. To be fair, I'm picking and choosing dishes I think have a decent chance of being eaten.
And so far? We are 4 for 4. At least 2 of the children like each one. The other 2 at least pick at it. And that my friends makes a winner.
And as for frying? I hate it. It is messy and gross and not better enough for me to forgo baking the chicken. I really don't know how the people in the south have done this for so long. All the oil! And grease! And splatters! And have I mentioned the oil?
And the cleanup? Made me not want to eat anything fried ever again. The oiliness. Eww! (Although... as a weight loss component, hmmm... maybe it works after all.)
So maybe not so much a new resolution. More of a vow to cut that shit out and just say 'NO' to frying.
