    New Years Resolutions are no big deal 🙂 You don’t have to keep them! Thanks for hosting the linkup!

  2. I don’t believe in New Years resolutions, makes life a lot easier! 😉
    Thank you SO much for choosing my roasted persimmons, I’m amazed that the post inspired so many people, I thought I was doing what everyone does! It’s lovely to share something people like the look of 😀😀😀 and in such good company with the other picks 👍🏻 Xx

      I’m going to stop making them! The resolutions, that is. The roasted persimmons, though, are a keeper. Persimmons are best eaten fully ripe and slightly soft, IMO. They’re really sweet that way. Roasting them would intensify their flavor, I would think. Wonderful idea!

    I think New years resolutions are made to be broken, I see it more as time to reflect!
    One year I made a resolution to stop snacking and had 3 snacks allowed, one was 6 raisins. Apparently this is supposed to be enough, satisfy the sweet cravings and in general be a perk. I bought a big tub and before I even registered I must have eaten about 300 raisins! The tub that was supposed to last me pretty much all year was gone in a week and it was the first week of Jan! The other two was a stick of celery and half an apple, neither ever even happened!
    I know I don’t even make it every week but it isn’t Friday without Fiesta Friday! 🙂 x

    • Angie says:

      Lol, Petra! You and that big tub of raisins, how funny 😁 Oh I’m the same way, my biggest weakness is probably gummy candy, which is much worse than raisins! If I start, I can’t stop! 😄 I’m so glad the Fiesta makes your Fridays better. That’s all I can ever ask for! 😘😘

    I’m right there with you! I’m trying but not really succeeding!

    Hi Angie, thank you so much for featuring my fish cakes and thank you to Shinta and Diann for their kind words! I’ve been battling the flu and almost forgot it was Friday, but my temperature has gone down for the time being and I can think a little clearer, so that’s how I finally remembered it’s Fiesta time! I can co-host in 2 weeks time:)

  6. Thanks so much for the feature ladies, and in such good company. I have a resolution this weekend to find persimmons and try Elaine’s dish 🙂

    • Angie says:

      And I bought eggplants to try yours! 😄😄 I don’t think it’s hard to know why I haven’t bought a cookbook since starting Fiesta Friday 😄

  7. Nope! Not me. No problem keeping it up – only because I didn’t make any resolutions. I’m getting pretty good at it after 2 decades of practice!😜😜😜

    Quinoa seems to be the rage these days! Looks really good!

    • Angie says:

      It’s taken you only 2 decades?! Well you’re a fast learner! 😂😂 Hey, I have an idea…if I replace other grains with quinoa, I will satisfy my “eat healthier” resolution, plus I’ll be considered hip for embracing quinoa!

  8. Lol, you’re not alone. I fell off the resolution bandwagon before I even jumped on, ha! One year my husband’s resolution was to not make any resolutions. Now, I can stick with that one 😉 Have a great weekend!

    • Angie says:

      Haha…that’s a smart man! I’ve decided to take baby steps towards my goals – My resolution for the day is to forget about my resolution 😄😄

  9. Hi guys!! Thanks for the feature! All the features are so gorgeous looking and sounding! And maybe one day I’ll get to eat a persimmon!! I’ve never had one or even seen one. 🙂

  10. Nooo Angie… you need resolutions! 😀 Not necessarily at New Years though 😛 but something as a goal or a target to aspire to! However, they do need to be specific and realistic and something which can be achieved, yours could be turning up to Fiesta Friday each week! 😛 You know I said one of mine was to visit (& co-host) more often! So here I am! It’s in my head now on a Friday that I need to at least pop over here and see what’s going on, even if I don’t share anything. Without my resolution I might just think ‘oh, I’ll check next week… or next… or next…’ then it would be Christmas again! 😛

    It’s not to late to re-evaluate your resolutions if you so wish, so instead of eat healthier, you could say have at least one piece of fruit a day, or always serve dinner with at least one vegetable (peppers on pizza count)! Cucumbers and cauliflower are both healthy, so if you’ve not taken cucumbers to work before, or switched potatoes for cauliflower (I’ll take the potatoes!) then that is already being healthier! 😀 😀 😀

    Blog more frequently? Well, my resolution a few years back was to blog at least once a week – that means at least once every seven days so at the minute my blog day is Wednesday, but I sometimes post an extra one if I know on Wednesday I’ll be busy! More frequently is very generic – maybe you already posted more frequently than last January but just didn’t realise, or maybe this year you’ve already posted more frequently than December just gone! 😛 So, that one is working too!

    Be more organised! This is my favourite one! More organised than what? Sorting things out ready to donate or discard doesn’t make it half broken? It makes it halfway there! 😀 Hooray! What else needs to be organised? You’re already sorting co-hosts for the year ahead so that’s very organised! 😀

    Maybe one of my resolutions should be to write less! 😛 Lol! Oh, and a fun fact for you… Wednesday 17th January 2018 was Official ‘Ditch your New Years Resolutions Day 2018’ so anybody who has got this far is a star! 😀 xxx

    • Angie says:

      Wow, you can be my motivational coach! I feel all positive and optimistic after your speech. And may I say how well-said and eloquent that was! I completely agree that I wasn’t specific enough in my goals, and in the future I’ll go with baby steps, i.e., finish organizing 1 closet instead of the vague and general “get organized”. You’re so smart!! You should have a TV show! 😄👍

      • Lol😂That did make me giggle about the tv show! 🤔Motivational coach… That’ll be from my day job- life coach😋 Love the ‘baby steps’ idea! 👍🏼 Oh and email me about dates for co-hosting☺😘

  11. Jhuls says:

    For 3 years now, I stopped making new year’s resolutions. They are like promises made that are meant to be broken.😂 I love all the features this week and I feeling hungry.😫 Thanks a lot for hosting FF, Angie! Have a lovely weekend!😘

    • Angie says:

      Good to know I’m not the only one breaking my resolutions, lol, but yet you’ve successfully done whole-30, that’s more than many people can do! So, bravo to you! Have a great weekend, Jhuls! 😘

  12. I have goals for this year, as ill be starting up my farmstead, but they aren’t exactly resolutions.

    Meanwhile, my computer has died, so I am simply hoping I can link properly from my one-finger kindle. Fortunately, I pre-scheduled two blog posts, including the current one, so I don’t have to write or figure those out.

    • Can’t get it to link. Will try later. No idea why the world wants to abandon laptops.

      • Angie says:

        Sorry to hear, I wonder why… I frequently use my iPad and iPhone for blogging purposes. I guess, yes, try again later. If you’re still unsuccessful, let me know. I can link it for you.

        Btw, so exciting to be starting a farm. Will you be raising goats and greens? 😄 I think that’d be an excellent project and again, exciting!!

        • Finally got the post to link. Yes, there will be goats AND greens. Hoping for goats and Shetland sheep in 2019, this year chickens and greens… (Can’t wait to fix laptop, I type one fingered on th Kindle, and cannot figure out hyperlinks on it.
