#the100dayproject starts tomorrow!
In case you were wondering, #the100dayproject is where you pick a theme for a project that you work on each day. For example, paint a watercolor each day, write a page a day, make a different cocktail each day. The project is put on by The Great Discontent and you can follow along with everyone’s projects on Instagram.
Last year, I had this great idea to create a recipe each day. This was an awesome idea of mine, but unrealistic since I was a new mom with an infant, was moving, selling, and buying a house all at the same time. I got through about 30 days and then had to put the project aside.
This year, I’m going to be more realistic. With my little one, I don’t quite have the time to develop a recipe each day, but I thought, HEY! I have a ton of cookbooks that are sitting there collecting dust. Let’s pull them out!
I’m going to make an untried recipe each day for 100 days.
I figure this will be a great learning experience. I’ll be able to try out new recipes, see new techniques and food flavor combos that I might otherwise not have tried. I’m working on finding recipes that are different from what I usually make or am really excited to try. The challenge is using recipes or changing them to be “real food.” I’m also planning on doing another round of Whole30, so that will also be interesting.
IT CAN BE DONE THOUGH!
I’m going to be going on vacation the last few days of the challenge so I started a bit early. Those recipes will be posted while I’m gone. So far, everything’s been pretty tasty.
I might also try to paint daily as a bonus. I’m not 100% holding myself to it; the recipes will be the main focus. It would be awesome to get some painting in again though. It’s been so long since I’ve painted and it’s really been calling me. If I can get it in, I’ll take a picture of it next to the food or post it on the blog.
I am so excited to be participating this year, and I will be blogging my progress here! You can also follow me on Instagram at ApronWarrior and also on SnapChat (also Apronwarrior) I will be showing the whole process of #the100dayproject. The hashtag I will be using for my project will be #100daysofcookbooks
