I'm going to set my goal to 100 this year, because last year I did 75 and went past it.

I want to join in but have no idea for a goal, I may go back to work soon and I have a crazy toddler so I don't want to make it unrealistic. I feel like it might be cheating if I count cooking and baking because I cook every day and bake at least once a week.

If that counts then I've already done a bunch of stuff

Great to see you ladies are already started!
Megan and I have some cool stuff on deck so stay tuned. (I'm horrible at executing things, bug me if you don't notice any movement in the next couple weeks)
You bet I've got something personal against
you!

I'll start with today then since I can't really remember what I did the previous 10 days:

1.Homemade burger/sandwich buns
2.No-knead bread started for tomorrow morning
3.Tub of oatmeal cookie dough in the fridge, ready to scoop for breakfast or tea
4.Hubby built me a quick shelf for my baking table using old Ikea desk brackets and a plank that was on our balcony to hold plants the previous occupant had
5. Turkey bones boiling for soup tonight
6. Buttermilk biscuits to go with the soup, 4 going in the oven the other 8 into the freezer

More to come, it's only 1pm

That's a great idea! I'm gonna copy you on that for my goal. I never made it past 10 last year :( Hopefully this year will be more productive! :mrgreen:
