How does it feel writing 2013 on your checks these days? It takes me forever to get used to writing the new year on my stuff. I really hope this year brings only good things. I don’t make New Year’s resolutions, because a different number on the calendar does not give me more motivation to start or change things. Nevertheless there is a list of things that I need to and want to improve on all the time, regardless the year or month. The list includes spending more time with kids doing what they love; teaching my 5 year old some preschool stuff; being more organized with my paperwork; learning sign language and teach it to my 3 year old, braking the habit of procrastinating and making a schedule for the week and then sticking to it. What are some things that you want to improve on? Are there any habits that you were able to break or make in the past?
While you think of the answer, let me share a recipe of this beef tongue in white creamy sauce that will go with pretty much any side dish, be it potatoes, pasta, rice or any other grains for that matter. For those that have never tried tongue meat you’re really missing out. I like it white sauce, but that’s definitely not the only way to make it. You can cook it until fork tender and then eat it cold or hot on a sandwich, you can serve it sliced as part of your cold meat platter, or even make aspic (холодец, заливное) out of it. Any choice you go with, is a great choice!
