Still more goals I forgot to check off...

#10 -- I had duck tongue a while back. A bit strange. Other parts of the duck are much tastier.
#67 -- And a letter off to grandma...
#83 -- Living room has been decorated for a while now...
#90 -- Tons of pictures up. We still could use more, but there's enough up to check this off.

Other Goals Completed

#21 - Finally finished that knitted sweater. It's too small (figures). I think I'll be going back to crochet.

#39 &#80 - Went ice skating with Ted. Had a lot of fun. Did lunch at the Friendly Toast first, which was very tasty.

#55 - I've been making and wearing jewelry quite a bit, so I'm counting this as done.

#64 - I only meant to go to one yoga class, but I've enjoyed it so much that I've regularly been going 3-5 times a week.

#66 - We held a Halloween party and I dressed as Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Lots of fun.

#67 Christmas card went out to grandparents on both sides.

#89 Fire extinguishers, new smoked detectors and CO detectors all in good shape.

Food Related Goals #2, 3, 4, 10

I've been very remiss about keeping this up to date. Since my last post I've:
  • Made no-kneed bread, which turned out very well. It's very easy and tasty, though I used a tablespoon or two more water than what that recipe calls for.
  • Made homemade butter for the bread. It's even easier than bread and wow, does fresh butter taste good! The buttermilk from making it went towards making buttermilk pancakes.
  • Tried several new foods, but have apparently forgotten a number of them. I do remember:
--- Red Hawaiian Sea Salt. (Okay, but I like Fleur de Sel better as far as expensive salt goes.)
--- Squid ink (as part of a tasting menu I had for my birthday)
--- Burdock root (I made kinpria goba and pickled burdock root, both okay, but not a favorite)
