2011 Resolutions For Cooking AND Funny Food Quotes For You!

A new year - a new beginning!  I'm ready for it.  Are you? 

I've been trying to think of a few resolutions regarding my eating and cooking habits for 2011.  Here are a few that come to my mind, things that I hope to accomplish, revamp or continue:

  • I will eat and try more vegan meals.
  • I will tackle more Cajun/New Orleans dishes that I've never made before, but find ways to lighten them up.
  • I will look for more kid-friendly recipes that my three-year old can (hopefully) help me with.
  • I will continue making my own snacks and desserts instead of buying them!
  • I will continue eating and cooking in healthier, improved ways.
  • I will continue learning and laughing my way around the kitchen!

Now to start the laughter for the New Year, here are some FUNNY QUOTES I found from famous actors, comedians, writers and more!  I hope you enjoy them.

"Soup is just a way of screwing you out of a meal."  ~Jay Leno

"And, of course, the funniest food of all, kumquats."  ~George Carlin

"He that eats till he is sick must fast till he is well."  ~English Proverb

"It's so beautifully arranged on the plate - you know someone's fingers have been all over it."  ~Julia Child

"I will not eat oysters.  I want my food dead - not sick, not wounded - dead."  ~Woody Allen

"Condensed milk is wonderful.  I don't see how they can get a cow to sit down on those little cans."  ~Fred Allen

"The most remarkable thing about my mother is that for thirty years she served the family nothing but leftovers.  The original meal has never been found."  ~Calvin Trillin

"You can tell how long a couple has been married by whether they are on their first, second or third bottle of Tobasco."  ~Bruce Bye

"Avoid fruit and nuts.  You are what you eat."  ~Jim Davis

"I'll bet what motivated the British to colonize so much of the world is that they were just looking for a decent meal."  ~Martha Harrison


Do you have any resolutions for eating in 2011?  Leave your goals in the comments section. 

I will be back on Sunday to post my meal plan for the coming week.  Hopefully I'll have better luck next week than I did this week.  I barely made anything after Christmas since my family was sick.  We all had terrible colds so cooking and eating were not on our minds.  Let's hope 2011 will bring us better luck with staying mucus-free!  Cheers!


  1. I want to cook more and make more of our snackfoods and meals from scratch. I want to learn to bake bread. And I love the quotes! Especially the one about the British!

  2. Hi Mandy, I love your blog! Looking forward to seeing what you come up with in 2011, happy new year!

  3. Those are great resolutions, Mandy! I can't wait to follow your stories and try out new recipes. As for my own food resolutions, I want to get back on the diet and continue down the path of healthy eating. I also would like to try to cook some things that I have been saying I want to do and just decide they are easier to buy at the store...I have always wanted to make my own marshmallows and doughnuts (speaking of healthy...LOL!)...silly I know!
