Most years, New Year’s Day pork and greens and black-eyed peas has been one of the only meals I cooked. Short of a Crock-Pot here and there, it’s just never been my thing.

But in February 2022, I rented a cabin in Garden Valley, Idaho for a week of working remotely because I couldn’t stand my own four walls anymore and I was hoping for a glimpse of the Milky Way. Well, it was cloudy every minute of my week – so no stars – but I mailed myself an introductory offer to Hello Fresh, so I wouldn’t starve in my cabin in the woods.

And it stuck.

I wasn’t looking for a new hobby and I didn’t declare any 2022 Resolutions to cook more. In fact, I don’t really do resolutions because the list would be too damn long. No, it just kinda happened. I needed a way to eat for a week, I tried it — and I didn’t hate it. Turns out maybe I hate shopping more than I hate cooking?

Nevertheless, 2022 was the year I cooked. 2-3 times A WEEK.

So all I’m declaring about 2023 is to continue saying YES to new things, big and small. Nothing specific, just eyes wide open for something new. (Well. Maybe a 2nd chance at the Milky Way. That’s been on ‘the list’ ever since.)

Here’s to 2023.

  1. You are so adventurous, Sarah! Renting a cabin in Idaho? I assume you went alone, and that is brave! I admire you and look forward to your next adventure! Happy New Year to you and your family!

    1. It was glorious. Except for the bad conditions for stargazing!

  2. So cool.
