For me 2011 was all about settling into a new life in a new city with a new job surrounded by new people. It also included getting (geographically) closer to family and dear friends from my past. It's been a busy year full of exploring, meeting new friends, and making a home in Portland. I'm excited to spend the next year having fun! I have a mental list of little goals for 2012 and I'll probably try to write them down at some point today, but my umbrella hope for the new year is to continue to have fun doing what I do.
If you have any hopes, goals or resolutions for 2012 I'd love hear about them in the comments!
Here are some of my final eats for 2011:
Oatmeal for breakfast, pretty much every day. Sometimes with chia, but I've run out until I get to the grocery store again. I got these sweet ramekins in a variety of colors for Christmas this year. Aren't they pretty?
We've been making a lot of pizza. It's cheap, fast, and so good. Also, one of my favorite foods. The chanterelle mushrooms were picked by my parents, which made that pizza even more special. The olive bar at the grocery store makes for interesting pizza toppers. And we've discovered that the cheddar style daiya makes an incredible stuffed crust. Yes, we went there.
And we're still getting greens with giant salads, smoothies and juices. My craving for fresh greens has come back with a fury. Seeing amazing green food on blog-friends' posts has helped. So, thanks for that!
Also, thanks for visiting me here and leaving comments. I'm grateful for my blog-friends and look forward to spending time with you in 2012. Have a nice New Year's Eve!
