Grub; Blog your New Year's Resolution

Here is the exciting thing about learning to cook: there are opportunities every day to practice. Well, there are opportunities to practice anything you want every day, but no matter what, every day you must eat a meal to survive, so it's harder to procrastinate from cooking, than to say, skip a kickboxing class, or forget to play your trumpet.

Sure, you can take the easy route and eat a President's Choice frozen pizza. But once you've discovered how simple cooking really is if you just put an extra 20 minutes into it... suddenly there are endless recipes and meals to try!

Yep, it's exciting. It took me about 3 1/2 months of daily blogging, but I have reached the point where I am obsessed with cooking and learning new things, and I don't really want to do much else. So, if there's anything you want to do/learn/practice, but just can't seem to get into it, try keeping a daily blog about it for at least three months and see what happens.

There's my pep talk for the day; I didn't, however, cook tonight. I went to Grub, one of my favourite restaurants on Main Street. Specifically because they serve bowls of punch. Punch with Pimms, gin, ginger beer, strawberries, cucumbers, etc. I also ate a portobello mushroom stuffed with roasted vegetables, but that's besides the point.

The next stop was a birthday party for my friend Heather, where I ate the most delicious vegan birthday cake (with non-vegan icing) I've ever tasted.
