Happy New Year!

New Year's resolution #1: Post to the blog more often...

Other resolutions I'm currently considering formalizing:
  • Sell the condo and buy a house!!!
  • Corollary #1 to previous resolution: Save more money
  • Corollary #2 to previous corollary: Shop less...
  • Make dinner at home more often
  • Corollary to previous resolution: find more things Eric will eat :)
  • Attend services more often
  • Find a place to volunteer regularly
  • See siblings and parents more
  • See family more -- not just our parents and siblings
  • Compete in Finish a triathlon
  • And of course, the obvious ones -- eat healthily, get to the gym frequently, make sure Eric doesn't eat too much junk food, etc.
  • Oh yeah -- and find a job!
Here's a delicious, extra healthy and super colorful recipe we made tonight:

Pineapple Salsa
a la Not Your Average Joe's
8oz can pineapple (crushed or diced is fine)
1 red chili pepper, or other brightly-colored pepper of desired hotness, minced
half an onion, give or take, diced (I like red onions for this, but tonight I only had a white onion)
1 orange bell pepper, diced
small handful of fresh cilantro, minced (probably 2-4 Tbsp minced)
kosher salt to taste

  1. Prepare all ingredients.
  2. Mix.
  3. Enjoy with tortillas, or my favorite good-for-you carby snack, All-Bran Crackers! NYAJ's served this with grilled salmon and asparagus, and it was *stellar*. It probably makes anything taste yummy.
  4. Feel happier and healthier -- who doesn't love some good, bright food in this season of sunlight-less tundra?
  5. I also recommend throwing in a margarita or a bottle of fizzy pilsner (yes, yes, I know this doesn't fit the "healthy" idea -- it's for the "happy" part!) and two or three commisserators.
To making today better than yesterday!
Sara (and Eric)
