Happy New Year!

Here’s wishing you all a Happy New Year! I hope 2010 will be a very good year for all of us.

To greet 2010, my brother, sister-in-law, and I decided to cook up a traditional Filipino meal for New Year’s: pansit (noodles, for long life), lumpiang shanghai (meat spring roll), lumpiang gulay (vegetable spring roll), roast chicken, and fruit salad with buko (coconut meat). Served with bubblies.

Happy New Year!

We had our 12 round fruits for “good luck”, too.

We had another roast poultry, chicken this time, cooked using Julia Child’s method:

Here’s what I started to do for 2010…well, those that I could share in public:

1. I committed to posting a photo a day for Project 365 for Food Bloggers. This is going to be a good exercise for daily photo upload and seeing what everybody else is eating, cooking, or taking photos of.

2. I’m participating in the Ten in 10 Healthy Challenge where I made a 10-week commitment to make these healthy changes in my life: eat more balance meals (including eating breakfast, which I almost always skip), get into a regular running routine, and finish my Couch to 5K program (well, I am on the 12-week plan, but I would like to finish the bulk of it, health permitting).
