(And Mom, I know you're not...for whatever reason the Pinterest gods dislike you. I'm truly so sorry!)
Pinterest is rapidly becoming the social media addiction of choice for many of my friends. So far I've managed to reign myself in by only following a handful of folks and not actually going to the Pinterest site very often. But lately I've seen lots of wonderful things in blogland and across the internet that have made their way onto my pin boards and some have even become reality.
Here are a few of my favorite new pins and if you want to, you can follow me on Pinterest HERE. :)
The caption under these is "Healthy Peanut Butter cookies"... which is completely hilarious. The recipe is 1 cup peanut butter, 1 cup sugar, 1 tsp baking soda and 1 egg - apparently they are only 36 calories per cookie. I think the pinner misunderstands the difference between low-calorie and healthy. But I shouldn't criticize, I'm on a calorie-counting quest to minimize my pooch for our upcoming beach trip and these are right up my alley! Let me know if you happen to make them.
I need some wellies for daily tasks around here on the homestead and these are perfection. Yes, my birthday is coming up! How thoughtful of you! ;)
The Squirt is in desperate need of something like this for his rapidly expanding Hot Wheels collection.
Mmmmmm. Pad Thai. I've made this (amazingly simple) version three times now and each time it gets a big thumbs up from husbands and children alike. Super easy and vegetarian-friendly or you can add chicken or shrimp (I've done both) for the meat-lovers.
And finally, 83 degree days + the threat of rain = disgusting humidity today in the ATL. Let's all go to Santorini for the rest of summer, shall we? - Sigh -
