Pin All the Things 4/28/12
This week has been exhausting for me. I have never felt so tired that I didn't feel like cooking anything at all. Some how I made it through the week and while I still feel groggy, I definitely feel more energetic today. As soon as I got up I headed to the library to pick up some books I had placed a hold on. I had been wanting to look at a couple of America's Test Kitchen cookbooks. They're fun but not as fun as the fiction novels I picked up too. I've been reading a ton lately...well, when I'm not asleep that is!
I joined a site called Goodreads. It's a site that lets you keep a virtual bookshelf of books you've read and books you would like to read. It will also suggest books based on your likes and dislikes. It's a good way to keep track of your reading list and find something new to check out. You can check out my bookshelf and profile here.
Pinned this week:
Things to Be Cooked
Coleslaw. I'm embarrassed to admit that I fail at making coleslaw from scratch. I've always been partial to the stuff from KFC. This recipe looks relatively simple and in appearance reminds of the stuff from KFC.
I keep posting healthy recipes with the hope that they'll inspire me to eat better. I have decided to swear off soda, even diet soda! I'm waiting for the headache now. Anyways, I tried lentils for the first time while doing Americorp and really enjoyed them and could see my self enjoying them seasoned like taco filling.
I Scream, You Scream
No It isn't a pin-board for scary movies! It's getting hot down here in Florida and I'm craving some ice cream...
I really like the premise of this recipe. I was thinking of modifying it by using cantaloupe instead. I love me some ice cold cantaloupe at the beach. It'd like the salty air mixes in with each bite full and intensifies the flavor. Divine!
I pinned this one for shear weirdness of it. I'll probably try it bought I dunno. I think the texture may end up being the deciding factor of weather or not this one is a success.
Blogs I love
Stumbled upon this gem this week while looking for sewing tips. Found a lot of projects I want to half way complete instead. (I have a ton of half finished craft projects sadly).
