But what about the professionals? I wondered if I was the only one who had made a resolution for 2013. (Among other plans, I will finally create order out of the chaos that is my freezer; I will develop a more orderly system for storing meats, sauces, ice cream, leftovers, etc. I’m taking suggestions.)
So I conducted a quick survey, and here are the responses from some Food Section regulars.
Yonan: “I resolve to try to bring as many of the lessons of my year of homesteading into my urban life as possible. So, to keep DIY’ing as much as I can. Oh, and even though I’m typing this as I scarf down green curry vegetables from Fojol Bros. truck, I resolve to not eat at my desk.”
Deputy Food Editor Bonnie S. Benwick: “I resolve not to leave pots and pans in the sink (although it is a wide and deep one), and to limit the amount of science experiments growing in the fridge. These are not inconsequential efforts, and should make my husband do a happy dance.”
Food/Travel Editorial Aide Becky Krystal: “I’d like to better stock my freezer to have more ready-made meals. I’m also going to try really hard to not acquire any more cookbooks, and I want to cook more from the ones I already have.”
The Process columnist David Hagedorn: “Avoid duos and trios of anything in restaurants.”
Wine columnist Dave McIntyre: “Drink more Riesling! (But I always say that.)”
Now, back to you: What are your food resolutions for the New Year?
