I’m no longer 30

by Beth on August 17, 2011

Lisa has inspired me.In recent days she has been scrambling to complete her 30-While-30 list. With less than a week to go, I think she’s going to make it! Just yesterday, I was treated to two of her lovely creations!

Now, as I mentioned last month, I am nowhere near completing my list. And I’ve been 31 for nearly a month. I really enjoyed the things that I made or at least attempted. Scones are now my go-to tea time snack and I’ve found that I far prefer homemade tomato sauce to the store-bought variety.

I truly want to complete my list, as it contains a wish-list of things I want to try out. I need to get back in the kitchen and this list will serve as a good inspiration. Even though I am no longer 30, I’m going to finish this list by the end of 2011. I was 30 during this year, and well, I keep forgetting my new age. :)

If you’re interested in what I’ve done so far, there are updates below.
