November in Review

The Recipes
Favorites are noted with an asterisk!
Side Dishes
There was one cookbook feature this month: Taste of Home: Best Loved Recipes.
I participated in Secret Recipe Club this month and posted Asparagus Gruyere Tart from Fried Ice & Donut Holes.

I want to revisit my resolutions again and update on how well/awful I'm doing on them:
  • Get on a schedule - I have been really awesome with this one in November. Mostly because I basically had to force myself to do it with all kinds of appointments and things I had to do.
  • Catch up on adding the printable feature to old recipes. - Added a few.
  • Work on emptying bookmarked recipes. - All the way up to the O's
  • Use breadmaker, cake pop maker, and KitchenAid pasta attachment. - I still want to do this.
  • Add tried recipes to my Master List. - I still need to do this. Still.
  • Figure out which recipes have been posted that aren't in a binder or on my Master List. - I need to find the time to do it.
  • Plan December & January's themed weeks - including recipes and the banners. - done!
  • Don't forget the food bucket list! Make stuff off of it. - I have been working on this. I may have been too ambitious with my desserts portion of it.
  • Make November menu plan and grocery lists for Oct/Nov ahead of time. - I finally did this - I didn't make grocery lists ahead of time, but I did get the menu plan for the whole month done. It was a time saver for sure.
  • Organize and use what is in my freezer.  - I didn't necessarily organize, but I did use most of what's in there.
  • **NEW** Update to-try and favorites lists.
  • **NEW** Make a list of what is in my freezer and in my pantry.
  • **NEW** Work on organizing more themed weeks.
  • **NEW** Prepare new blog stuff for the new year!
  • **NEW** Get more organized on the sponsorship stuff.
