Food Goals

Do you ever make food goals? I realize I'm a food-obsessed gal, but I can't be the only one who thinks about food constantly, peruses cookbooks for fun, constantly tries new recipes (or at least plans to), etc. Right?
I'm also a list maker, especially around my birthday. It's coming up in a few weeks, and I've been compiling a list in my head of "food things" I want to accomplish.

Probably. But here they are-

Eat French Onion Soup. I've never had it, and I find that odd, considering that it's smothered with cheese and topped with bread.
Make and eat French Toast. I've eaten it once. I've never made it. Crazy, no? And I'm somewhat obsessed with the idea of it. I probably have 10 recipes that I've ripped out of magazines over the past few years.
Make and eat a Croque Monsieur. I think this is the last french food goal. Again, how have I never eaten this sandwich?
Make a new dessert every month. I have a huge binder filled mostly with dessert recipes, most of which I've never tried (I tend to make the same things over and over again). I want to remedy that, because there's something satisfying about trying something new and not just continuing to wonder about it. Even if it ends up not being that great and I get rid of the recipe, it's still satisfying.
Make a 7-layer cake. This is on my list of things to do before I'm 30. I'm turning 29 this year, so...the clock's ticking.


  1. I love Croque Monsieur. There's a little french cafe in town that makes the best one ever with the most amazing side salad. I want to steal their vinaigrette.

  2. I like your food goals! If you are shooting for a large-layered cake, why not go all out?!

  3. Oh, Keely. OH OH Keely. French Onion Soup. You will fall hard in love with french onion soup, my friend.

    My family makes it every Christmas Eve. Get it somewhere good, that really broils it with lots of good gruyere. Or make your own. Don't go to Panera or somewhere lame like that where they sprinkle shredded swiss and croutons on top. Blasphemy, I tell you, to call that french onion soup!
