25 under 25

As a consummate list maker, I’m kind of shocked I haven’t done more of this listmaking about goals before. Of course I have the proverbial “Bucket List” all written out, but it includes more big picture things; things that would be hard to do in one year. But the idea of a smaller set of goals, some of them the same goals and some different, that I would set to achieve before a specific date, appeals to me to. So here is my list of 25 things I want to do before I turn 25- I’m a few months late starting this as my birthday is in April, but I things that’s okay 🙂

1. Live in Italy

2. Visit a state I’ve never been to before

3. Learn and memorize two new songs on the piano

  1. The above is good. I tend to put lemon slices and rosemary sprigs under the skin before roasting. The meat, not just the skin, is flavored from the top down this way, while the items in the cavity send flavor up. And we mostly don’t eat the skin anyway. If you are looking for a fried chicken dish, regular or oven fried, I highly recommend soaking the chicken overnight in salted buttermilk – OMG tender, moist and flavorful. Really makes a difference. Cheers!
