What's in Store for January

So I was seriously considering ditching my whole What's In Store feature for the new year because frankly, I'm not that good at keeping up with it. I have all these newfangled ideas in my head at the beginning of each month and then life happens, making all my plans go awry. Like my newest installation for PGEW TV (technical issues) and my granola recipe (coming way sooner than you'd think, though). I am filled with the best of intentions that cannot always be fulfilled. Still, I rather like having a touchstone for every month, and shall therefore continue with my little monthly blurb. And so it goes for January of 2010...

~ Buñuelos are still on the way, yo. I swear. I cannot blame this on anything other than sheer fear that I will not explain it correctly, so I may need to consult my mommy for technical support on this one. But it's coming, cheese fritter lovers, I promise.

~ I am on a very serious mission to be a size 4 once more (hey, that rhymed) and I'm taking you along with me. Except for the occasional dessert and evil crepe here & there, expect to embark on a journey of many, many uber healthy things this month. I don't do resolutions, I go on missions; and I want you to join me! :)

~ I'm FINALLY working on something that a lot of you have been writing/asking/waiting for: a PGEW shopping list. This is a goal I set for myself back in November of 2009, so this will DEFINITELY be making an appearance this month. Hope this helps those of you who are PGEW die hards!

~ I have a new breadmaker (that I scored for FREE, as those of you on Facebook know) and so far, it appears to work. If you have a good, low-cost bread recipe that you'd like to share, email me! I'd love to get some suggestions. :)

~ If you're not a fan on Facebook, you should definitely become one! I'm not the best Twitter user so a lot of my updates come from FB, and as PGEW grows, that means that cool things like giveaways will be made more readily available to anyone who's a Facebook fan. Don't be shy, join today!

That's it for now! Stay tuned for new crepe recipes, another $25 Shopping Cart excursion, and all sorts of other random stuff on PGEW this month. Happy New Year!!!

    I make my favorite breads from left over cooked grains. My absolute favorite (after challah) is Anadama bread, using corn meal and oatmeal and molasses. Molasses is pricier than sugar but the bread is heavenly, hearty and wholesome.

  2. I have my recipe up for bunuelos if you would like to use it. It is the second recipe that I have posted, this is my first try at the blog thing, and I'm only in my second week! Check it out if you like. By the way, I love your stuff!

  3. I'm looking forward to the buñuelos - they sounded amazing!

  4. I totally missed the breadmaker post, but I actually came on here to tell you about a wonderful book I received as a gift recently! Healthy Bread in 5 Minutes a Day. I made a bunch of stuff from it over the holidays and just made a batch of "Whole grain garlic knots with parsley and olive oil." They are delicious! The bread is ridiculously easy (even without a breadmaker), nutritious (size 4, here you come!), and of course making your own bread is dirt cheap (but you already knew that, now that you have a breadmaker). Check it out!

  5. Oh, and also! Have you ever done anything with tilapia? I did a search on your site and didn't see anything...I'm trying to eat more fish b/c it's oh so good for you, and tilapia is pretty affordable, tasty, and really forgiving when cooking it--but I don't know what to do with it! Help?
