Culinary Bucket List

Have you seen the movie, The Bucket List starring Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman? If you haven't, make it a point to rent it. The movie is about a man (Jack Nicholson) who is terminally ill and creates a list of things he wants to do before he dies. Together, him and his friend (Morgan Freeman) set out to do everything on his list. Since release this movie has spurred many a bucket list among it's viewers. One thing you will learn about me is I am the queen of making lists! (I didn't say I always finish everything on the list!). The thing I love about making lists is being able to cross things off after I have accomplished them. It makes me feel like I am really on top of everything and so organized. Ironically, the only area I am not organized in is paper! I have mountains and mountains of papers that I am still going through after moving in our new home 8 months ago. Bills from 2001 are in there! Sad, I know! I mention that to tell you I'm not sure why I make lists. Even after the sheer excitement of crossing things off...it adds more paper to the pile! :/ I guess we all have mountains to climb. It just so happens one of mine is a made of paper. The newest list I have made is my Culinary Bucket List! This is a list of things I want to either make for the first time or finally perfect! In case the title threw you off, that's what a Culinary Bucket List is! :) I'm just a tiny bit sarcastic. Just a smidge! The good thing about this list is I love to bake/cook so I will definitely cross everything off eventually. The bad thing is once I do, then what list will I make? I won't think about that just yet. I hope you will check back on my blog from time to time and see what's cooking in my kitchen and what dishes are being crossed off! Better yet, join me! Make your bucket list and start cooking, or steal mine and cook alongside me! I will be posting the dishes I bake as well as tackling my bucket list and just chatting. Here...drum roll...is my list: (it's long so go pour a glass of sweet tea or coffee, whichever is your fix, and relax!)
