What will 2012 bring? I’m looking forward to sharing some old-school Cajun recipes with you–the kind of things never seen in restaurants, rarely seen in cookbooks, and all too often overlooked by outsiders. (More on those recipes later).
In the resolutions department, I will try to waste less food and to buy foods with less packaging (good-bye, prewashed plastic clamshell lettuces; hello, salad spinner!) I made a tiny stride toward less packaging yesterday…my favorite Kashi TLC bars aren’t packaged in a box anymore. The six bars are bundled together by a nifty, recyclable adhesive label. Just peel away the label to release a bar–what a fantastic solution! Less cardboard packaging means less waste AND less weight, which reduces the energy expended to get the bar into my local store.
What are your food goals for 2012?
