When I think about all the things I haven’t achieved in 2015, I kind of feel low. You know, of course I’m not perfect. I do realise that I’ve done a ton of things but I feel like I’ve achieved nothing. Have you ever felt that way? So as to not end the year with a negative note, and put myself into a positive mindset to begin 2016 – where I do intend to put myself forward into achieving as much as possible – I thought I’d look back through 2015 and see what I have done.
This summer we went on a road trip through Spain, all the way from Barcelona to Andalucía, the southernmost tip of Spain. It’s something I’ve wanted to do for years. And yay, we did it this year.
With regards to food, last year I made a food bucket list. Here are the things I’ve ticked off from it now:
Make a New York style cheesecake
Only a few weeks ago I made my first cheesecake. It was so good that I made another one the following week. According to the cheesy ingredients it can be debated whether it is a proper New York Style cheese cake or not. But it does taste like one.
Visit a winery
This summer I visited more than one winery, but only brought my Nikon to one. It was beautiful, I learnt a lot, and you can see it here.
Be comfortable making my own pastry
OK, this point is semi ticked off. I don’t have proper photographic evidence, but lately I’ve been making my own pastry with regards to some desserts. When it comes to savouries, I still need to learn how to do that.
Visit a honey farm
Even though I didn’t bring my camera into the actual bee farm section – because of the astronaut type suit – I did do a small easy peasy course on candle making here.
I have done it. No I didn’t photograph it…
Make vegetarian burgers
These were vegetarian. And they are incredible tasty too.
Make tarte tatin
I only photographed the first flop looking but not flop tasting one. I did make more tarte tatin after that and they’re great. Guess what, they are so easy to make too. As long as you have an adequate baking tray to make it in.
What are some of the things you’ve ticked off your bucket list this year?
