How Pinterest is going to save my sanity (and appeitite)

How pinterest will save my sanity and appetite


Many of those who know me well know that I have never been one for cooking. In fact, i’d go so far to say I kinda of strongly dislike it (despite the fact I have a gorgeous large kitchen that is so going to waste on a shlub like me).

Anyways, back in my good old single days I would just throw together whatever the heck I felt like, whenever the heck I felt like eating. In fact, even today I would still be perfectly happy to eat an easy dinner rotation of a) cereal b) toast and eggs or c) spaghetti pretty much every single week but I have these two little boys who seem to want to eat something different every. single. night. at 5:30 (or earlier). Sigh.

So, i’ve tried, i’ve really really tried over the years to expand my kids palettes and get more creative in the kitchen but with a chronic gagger/hater of pretty much everything and another kid who loves a particular meal one week then despises it the next I have seriously given up.

Did I also mention that I am a life long hater of red meat, and don’t even get me started on chicken skin or bones. Shivers.

So, as a last ditch effort to save my sanity (and appetite) and not allow my family to die of malnutrition I have decided to start a 30 day Pinterest cooking challenge. I have been pinning a bunch of yummy looking meals on my “mains.” Pinterest board and plan to select one of these pins every night for 30 days (except for fridays – no one should have to cook on fridays amiright?)

And for some &%*$&#(*%&^ reason the Pinterest widget doesn’t want to show the lovely widget of my good eats board so here is the link again

Do you have any suggestions for super picky eaters like me and my kids? Shoot me a comment or link to your Pinterest boards with your fave recipes por favor!!

    This…intimidates me. I, too, struggle with cooking. AND…my kids are vegetarians and I AM NOT. How did that even happen?! This seems like a great goal, though…I shall watch you go through it, see how it goes, then maybe leap. HA! You do the hard work first.
