I don’t really do resolutions. Because like the cliche they are, I usually abandon them quickly like bad boyfriends. Rather I make deals with myself. This year’s are as broad as they are ridiculous: Eat breakfast everyday Read more widely Learn one new recipe per week Finally learn Arabic Be open to love (Oprah made me say that) Say yes more often (except to margaritas) And of course…eat more cheese. Who can ask for more than that?
