So I guess 52 actually means ~21 (which is how many we've done that I remember; I still need to update with gumbo, oreo balls, etc)...so we'll extend this into 2011 too...and not extend the number required past 52. Just FYI to the general reader, Andrew and I do not live together, and next school year we will hopefully be apart (grad school and all that jazz for him, completing my degree for me), so it makes cooking together difficult at best. I think the most realistic goal for us is to complete 52 special recipes between 2010-2011...and then we can go from there!
Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and have a Great New Year everybody!
(and no, we won't be making a fruitcake!)
