A fall bucket list is easy to make because there are so many fun things to do in the fall.
I was scrounging for things to put on my bucket list for Winter to the point that I almost didn’t want to make one at all. But I thought forcing myself to do something fun this winter would be better than just tucking in and waiting for April.
Bake a Panettone (Check!)
It’s everyone’s (read: my) favourite Italian yeast cake!
Maybe I’ll try a slight variation on the usual recipe: Coconut? Chocolate? or Gingerbread, perhaps?
Go Ice Skating
I’m a terrible skater but I still like skating. I haven’t gone in years and I think I need to remedy that.
Make a Soufflé (Check!)
I’ve never made a soufflé before but I’ve always wanted to. It seems like it would make a good weekend dinner on a winter night.
Maybe I’ll try this recipe from Joe Pastry.
Or one of these recipes from NPR.org.
Or maybe Julia Child’s Cheese Soufflé
But first I need to acquire a soufflé dish.
Enjoy a Warm, Crackling Fire
Preferably outdoors, like this:
I don’t exactly know how I’m going to manage this one. But hopefully at some point this winter I come across a fire that I can warm up with. Maybe with my hands wrapped around a mug of coffee or mulled wine.
My dad has a woodburning fireplace inside. It may come down to me building a fire there.
Build a Snowman (check!)
Watch The Muppet’s Christmas Carol (check!)
It’s my favourite Christmas Movie. I try catching it on TV every year, but two Decembers ago Matt bought me the DVD so now I can watch it whenever I want!
