You know my theory: never make a resolution you won’t want to keep.
In years gone past I have come up with:
- no more walking or cycling uphill
- have a spa day every month
- eat food from a new country at least once a month
You get the idea.
I have no idea what my new year’s resolution was for 2008, so I decided I would record my 2009 resolution here on these pages:
- Eat more seafood.
It is an easy one to achieve – we love shellfish, and fresh seafood, but we don’t get around to going to the market often enough. For New Year’s Eve I hopped on the moped, went down to Footscray Market and bought up some rockling fillets, some fresh de-shelled prawns and a handful of scallops out of the shell. A trip to the vegetable stall for some fresh herbs and the makings of a Greek salad, and I was all set.
The prawns were marinated in chilli, garlic, coriander and some Punjabi Kitchen King masala from the local Indian supermarket, then panfried in their own juices. I served them with the Greek salad on New Year’s Eve for supper and realised I had seriously over-catered. The rest we left until this evening when we had the rockling fillets steamed in foil parcels in the oven with garlic, green shille, spring onion, coriander and Chinese five spice. The scallops I tossed in chilli and garlic and threw them on the barbie. Divine.
Happy New Year everybody! What are your resolutions?
