I'm not really one to make New Year's resolutions. Mine are usually the same-old, same-old, be healthier, less stress, etc. And usually after a week or two, dropped one by one until by the end of the year I can't even remember what it was I resolved to do.
This year I am going to set one goal for myself. (OK, well, except for that other big goal I hope we can accomplish this year). I want to find a way to wean us from canned soup. We eat canned soup regularly. It is a quick, easy, and so I thought until recently, healthy meal. The problem is that most canned soup (and usually the boxed kind too) have high levels of BPA due to the lining of the can/box that leaches into the food. Our favorite brand, Progresso, is one of the biggest perpetrators of this. We are not going cold turkey on canned soup, but I want to look into what we can do to make batches of soup on our own to store for later use. I might look into whether this can be done with canning as we have no room for a second freezer. And it might take a few tries until we can kind a few homemade soups that we like (I tried to make soup once and it was a bland failure). So that is my goal for this year. Maybe not simple, but not a pass/fail endeavor either.
