Whether it's profound self-knowledge or just plain cynicism, some attitude has taken hold and stifled my impulse toward New Year's resolutions. I'm going to spare myself a slew of self-recriminations by not promising to keep a clean house, a balanced checkbook and a benign disposition. I'm going to obviate the need to berate myself for impulse buying, procrastinating and smoking on occasion, by not forswearing them to begin with.

Chalupas are a traditional Mexican snack. Normally, they're boat-shaped masa shells stuffed with something savory. Sometimes, though, they're made with regular corn tortillas. The convenience more than makes up for the small sacrifice in authenticity. Combine those tortillas with leftover baked or boiled potatoes and chorizo and you've got a dinner that's filling and fast.

There's nothing quite like a cookout to confound my friends. For almost every barbecue invitation that arrives in my mail, I get a last-minute phone call from the host, who, while preparing the hamburgers, frankfurters or chicken, has suddenly remembered how I feel about such things. The point of the call is to ask me if I wouldn't mind: (1) making a meal of potato salad and green beans; (2) bringing my own entree; (3) coming for brunch next week instead.

Our family had few traditions, but there was one that held true to the day. Every Friday evening, our family would gather for the traditional Sabbath meal. My oldest brother, who always seemed to be working and on the go, actually came to dinner every week until he married and his wife lit their own Sabbath candles. Mom's menu that night was always the same--and always tasty. Roasted chicken, with potatoes, began cooking hours earlier in the day.

When the weather gets warmer and ideas for simple but nutritious dinners get scarce, follow the suggestion of one popular food manufacturer: "Do what chefs, cooking contest entrants and other creative cooks do: Pick one of your favorite foods and create a new way to serve it."

As a small child I dreamed of starring in the movies. Somehow I ended up stirring at the stove instead. But I must say that that is without a moment's pang, because cooks always eat well, whereas actors often do not eat at all. The following recipes come from my book "Greene On Greens" and still star at the dinner table naturally. My use of these favored stove-top ingredients is classically simple: It is borrowed from old biblical tales.

Although stir-frying originated in the Far East, recipes cooked by this method needn't be limited to those from that part of the world. Mexican Beef Stir-Fry cooks thin slices of lean flank steak in oil seasoned with cumin, garlic salt and oregano. Add sweet red pepper and onions and serve over lettuce rafts, or use for tacos and tostadas. Favorite toppings such as shredded cheese, chopped tomato, guacamole and salsa will add the finishing touches.

Creamy Mushroom Soup may be light and delicate or robust and earthy. The flavor depends on the mushrooms used in preparation. Select young mushrooms with closed veils under the caps for a more delicate-flavored soup. Those with wide-open veils have less moisture and will give a fuller, more emphatic mushroom flavor. It takes only minutes to prepare this recipe for Creamy Mushroom Soup. It makes an excellent first course or light meal with salad and rolls.
