I love looking at ideas on Pinterest. I have to be careful though as sometimes it makes me feel worthless. There are so many good ideas and creative people out there. I have to be careful to not allow it to make me feel less than creative. I know you all think that I am this super creative person, but I am not. I have been ver fortunate to find that I have a natural talent for art jewelry making, but that is about the extent of it. I have a hard time decorating my house, coming up with cute gifts or anything creative in any other realm. Even jewelry making is extremely difficult for me. I can sit at my bench for hours upon hours and have nothing but crap to show for it. But every now and then, things click and they all fall into place. I wish that would happen a bit more often. Hopefully soon.
Another area that I am really awful is cooking. I am not good at it at all. And quite frankly, I don’t enjoy cooking. I would much rather do other things, like play in the studio and wait for fabulous ideas to come. Sigh, Such is life.
One of the things that I have enjoyed doing on Pinterest is looking at all the yummy things to eat. Pinterest is actually the reason that I asked for a crockpot for Christmas. I had been given one as a wedding gift, and I am pretty sure that in 15 years of marriage, it was used maybe 4 times. But then I started to see all these great things you could do with it. So just 2 months after I had given mine away, I asked my husband for one. The look on his face was priceless. HA!
One of our favorite recipes is Teriyaki Chicken. In fact, we had it last night. I meant to snap a photo of it, but we were running a bit late for dinner and everyone snatched it up quickly. The recipe I love to use is from http://lakelurecottagekitchen.com/2011/08/30/crock-pot-teriyaki-chicken/
