How hard could cooking 52 recipes in 52 weeks be?

Turns out pretty hard. Those of you who have been with PUGTATO from the beginning know that I set a goal to cook 52 recipes in 52 weeks as part of a creative challenge to myself.

Here I am, a year and half later, and finally, FINALLY, I am half way through this challenge.  It would be so easy right now to just give up and be done with it all. But that defeats the purpose! 52 recipes in 52 weeks was an unrealistic timeline, but the challenge of 52 recipes itself is not unrealistic! Every time I feel like throwing the towel in, I scroll through my blog and revisit recipes I never would have tried had it not been for this challenge.

52 recipes in 52 weeks PUGTATO

It’s a marathon, not a sprint.

I’ve tried great recipes and not so great recipes.  I’ve failed miserably at a few and laughed at the final results.  (Those, by the way, never make it to press, because who wants to make a garbage can eligible recipe?)

I am encouraged by the fact that when I log on to Pinterest, my “I made this” board is growing.  My guess is that of the millions of pins that are posted each day, very few of them actually ever get made.  I am proud of the fact that I am actually making these recipes and that I’m turning these little electronic tidbits into real meals, shared across a table with friends.

So hang on, readers!  We still have another 26 or so recipes to go!  Fire up those kitchens and let’s get cooking!
