My new year's resolutions for 2006

It is time again for us to sit down and make our new year's resolution lists. It is so special this year for me at My Dhaba to have a blog to post the resolutions and share it with all of you honestly hoping not to break any of these. :-) So here it goes...

I hereby resolve to do the following things in this New Year 2006.

1. Avoid eating all possible additives, chemicals, food colors, ajno motto (monosodium glutamate), junk or toxic foods, or ready-to-eat packaged foods.
2. Buy and read a new book each fortnight.
3. Concoct at least five traditional Indian dishes in a week and post the recipe details at My Dhaba.
4. Do not miss breakfast - the most important meal of the day.
5. Enjoy all the quiet kitchen pleasures.
6. Find time for self reflection every day.
7. Guzzle more tea than coffee this year.
8. Hoard lots of fruits at home and eat at least one fruit a day.
9. Identify with others; share ideas, views, values, and thoughts.
10. Jack up and eat more healthier and nutritious foods.
11. Keep after the meals and snacks timing.
12. Learn and cook at least one new recipe a week chosen from the favorites of neighborhood food bloggers.
13. Monitor the cashflow more closely; try to save a little more money every month.
14. Network and revitalize the entire supportive dear and near ones.
15. Organize My Dhaba contents in a better possible way.
16. Play with kids at least one hour a day everyday.
17. Quench plenty of water at least 1.5 liters in a day.
18. Read at least 3 goodnight stories to kids in a week.
19. Sleep at least 8 hours every day.
20. Try to include all those colorful veggies (broccoli, spinach and all other greens, carrots, sweet potatoes, peppers, and tomatoes) in every day meals.
21. Use the time, talents, and resources wisely to help others.
22. Visualize and strive relentlessly in making My Dhaba truly a rendezvous to relish the flavor of traditional Indian home cooking.
23. Every morning, write a list of the things that need to be done that day. Do them.
24. Xerox and drink HOBIY at least 3 times a week.
25. Yield the floor to and be more patient at work/with others.
26. Zing every traditional Chinese dishes; try to cook and master them properly.

So here is a challenge to you. What resolutions would you like to see made by me?

It's going to be a great year, and we wish all of you who visit us here, health, happiness, and the pure joy in relishing the flavor of traditional Indian home cooking dishes.

Say ‘yes’ to yourself and to the life you lead and accept your unique personhood with an inner recognition of your rightness in the universe and declare your individuality and confirm your vitality and importance.

Embrace the life that is yours and flows through you. Do not say ‘yes’ to people, issues, or events with which you are deeply disturbed.

Affirmation does not mean a blanket wishy-washy acceptance of anything that comes your way in life, regardless of your feelings about it. Bring it out and share your thoughts.
