PW Challenge: 18 of 65.

Posted on by Jennie

Well folks, since it’s nearly May, and we’re 4 months in, I thought it best to give a PW Challenge update. As of today, we are 18 recipes in. That’s about 28 %. Which is more than 25%. Which is where one should be, if one was going to divide up the challenge over a year. Which, as you know, we are.

(Please hold while I go write the PW an email. I guess she should know about our plan.)

(OK you can stop holding now. I sent it.)

So 18 of 65 isn’t bad. I think our next plan of attack is to go back and assign some recipes to seasons (for example, cinnamon rolls might be November. Doesn’t November scream CINNAMON!!!!) After that, we’ll simply tackle the next 47 recipes in a civilized manner, i.e. making 3 at a time in an hour and a half because damn it we think we can fit one more in before we shower and go to that fancy party we can’t miss because it’s really important and NO I don’t think anyone will notice you didn’t wash your hair and there is butter in it.
