This morning I pinnned my 1000th pin on Pinterest. Crazy. I love Pinterest and keep adding new boards. I use it for work, I use it for home and I use it for working on me. I love my little collection of quotes that I've pinned as well as the visual stimulation and inspiration of all the amazing ideas out there is web and blogland.
For example, this was my 1000th pin...Rice Krispie hearts for Valentine's Day from Family Fun. Not rocket science or mind-blowing in any way. Just a simple twist on a favourite family treat. I made a tray of regular RK squares last week and they were gone in a day. I hadn't made them in ages and I had forgotten how much we all liked them ;) Now, I have this fun little twist posted on my pinboard so when I am scanning for ideas to make for treats for family and friends, I will remember this one! It will also likely inspire other twists on RK squares. That's what using Pinterest is all about for me.
I check Pinterest a couple times a day so I don't miss anything. I am always finding new recipes to try. In honour of my 1000th post, I made three recipes today that were found on Pinterest.
Coconut Banana Bread from HERE. So so good for this coconut lover!
Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Muffins from HERE. Yum.
Lighter Chicken Enchilidas for dinner from HERE. Yummy, but I would hold back on the chipoltes for three of us next time!
So it was a Pinterest kind of day...amongst two meetings at schools, grocery shopping, one sick at home son and one son stressed out making cold calls for a school project.
I'll be enjoying some coconut banana bread with a cup of tea later this evening to celebrate my epic pinning!
