The annual making of the cabbage rolls. Mine burned. Grandmom's were perfect. I learned this year as I made Grandmom retell the story (read here) again, that the grocer was Hungarian. Makes sense!

Last year, at the beginning of the year, I entered a blog giveaway to win a silver stamped necklace. To enter, I had to pick my "word" for 2010. Most people were posting words like, faith, hope, love, service. I picked "dinner." In 2010 I wanted to be better about planning and cooking dinner for my family. I wanted to improve my cooking skills, have regular family sit-down-at-the-table-together dinners, eat healthier, and spend less money eating out. While I had a lot of 2010 failures, I think I did succeed at dinner. It's kind of funny that I even remember entering that little giveaway a year ago. It was insignificant at the time, but made for a good goal in the end. Luckily I didn't win the necklace though, "dinner" would be a weird thing to wear around your neck!
