Let me preface this post by saying that I am now a Pinning Fool!
I spent most of the weekend lounging in the house, reading, and watching the season two episode of Boss from Starz. When that got another complaint from the kids, I turned the TV to my son and turned to the updated Pinterest app on my Kindle. I was only supposed to peruse for a minute, but an hour later, I was making plans to head to the store to purchase items to duplicate pins I liked.
I think part of the fascination is that I’m living vicariously through the pictures of food. I started counting calories and it’s amazing what I was scarfing down! Some glasses can be the size of a mid morning meal!
I made this concoction that fellow blogger Nancy pinned:

I snagged a $20.00 Panini Maker:
And immediately found this recipe to make:
I used the bay leaves and tomatoes from the garden.
Of course some bacon:
I found my mo-jo for the upcoming school year:
And I started a bucket list.
This is the ‘See a game in Cowboy Stadium’ pin.
