awhile back, i caught the keynote speech from a blogger conference from one of the pinterest* founders, ben silverman. one of the things he said really stuck with me.
i realize that i spend too much time viewing blogs and not enough time doing the things those blogs inspire me to do.
one of the biggest things is cooking! unless you consider grilled cheese cooking, i’ve never really cooked. my eating habits closely resemble those of my 4-year old niece. bread. cheese. bread. i’m the vegetarian who doesn’t eat vegetables. but the times, they are a changin’…
the internet makes cooking easier for novices like me, you can youtube videos on how to cook a butternut squash, how to zest a lemon, how to prepare asparagus. it’s endless, and i’m loving it.
even if it’s one small thing a week, i think it’s a great goal to STEP. AWAY. FROM. THE. IPHONE. IPAD. IMAC. and do something that inspires you.
“talk is cheap. it takes money to buy whiskey.”
one of my all-time favorites from my dad. i think i learned that one around age 4. can you imagine a mini-me in pink ballet tights telling my babysitter, “talk is cheap…”
the point is…i made these raspberry oat bars yesterday and i’m bringing them to the shop to share them today (lest i eat the entire tray solo.)
happy friday, come visit! xox
*have you guys starting “pinning” yet? i know, i know, one more interweb thing….room6 is on pinterest and i gotta say, even though i’m a complete newbie, it’s pretty neat. in a nutshell, pinterest is a virtual pin board to keep track of things you stumble across (and like) on the internet. for example, if you’re planning a retirement party, you could “pin” images of cakes, food, venues, invites, etc. that you like. you can “pin” images of houses that inspire you, recipes you’d like to make, d.i.y.s you’d like to d.i.y (or have your husband diy for you)…you name it.
