Mid-Year Resolution

I hereby resolve. . .

…To use cloth napkins in my home. (My apologies to the Canadians who prefer, “serviette”–though “napkin” really is easier to say if you think about it.) For one, I don’t like putting a piece of newspaper to my mouth mid-meal. Also, I believe the cloth napkin will further make a meal feel like a meal, (even if it is fish sticks or pizza).

…To wear an apron when I’m in the kitchen. There had to be a reason that all of those glorious women in the 50s wore aprons all the time. Maybe it was as much about preserving their clothes as it was enjoying their job. I’ll give it a try and let you know.

…To use fresh fruits and vegetables all summer long. “Fresh” as in–from a place under a bridge or a stand on the corner that looks like the opening scene of a horror flick–not as in “I got this from the grocery 10 minutes ago.” In reality, those carrots were probably picked last month.

(Or worse still, those carrots were probably made from apples.)

I am making resolutions all the time. Who says they have to be made on January 1?
