Kitchen goals

vanessa7 | Aug 20, 201703:20 PM     9

I recently read Alice Water's "My Pantry" and it got me thinking about my goals in the kitchen. I'm not sure if I'll ever make my own vinegar or cheese, but I would like to start with making my own chicken stock and stop buying it. Other goals:

1) Grow my own herbs and eventually other vegetables.

2) Eat dinner at the table and not at our counter.

3) Bake bread.

4) Organize my pantry!

5) Figure out how to get my 2-year-old to eat more vegetables and less pasta.

6) Make pasta.

7) Use my wok more.

8) Make kombucha.

9) Make macarons.

10) Try one intimidating recipe a month.

I always wonder whether certain things are worth making (bread, vinegar, yogurt, cheese), but I can always try it and see. Curious to hear from others and what you're working towards!
