If you’re like me you peruse through Pinterest looking at awesome recipes, crafts or organizational tips to pin to your board and in a weird way you feel accomplished after you add it to your collection. “I’m totally going to paint my fingernails to look like peacock feathers but first I have to make a bow and arrow out of dental floss and a q-tip.”
I think we like Pinterest so much because it helps us visualize the type of person we want to be… stylish, fit, uber organized. I don’t know about you, but I rarely take the time to actually make the recipes or organize my tampon collection but the thought that I just MIGHT do it someday leaves me feeling satisfied.
This has been my crutch in weight loss. I don’t mean to brag but I do have a pretty amazing imagination
or I’m just extremely delusional . This means I have no problem envisioning what I would look like if I had six pack abs or wore underwear to workout in that showed off my perfectly round, shiny, sweaty butt.
But if my before pictures have taught us anything it’s that I should NEVER workout in my underwear… just kidding. It teaches us that it’s not enough to just pin things to do for a later date. In order to live a fulfilled life you have to actually DO them.
On that note, I made a recipe that I had pinned on my Pinterest board and it was divine (Yes, girls from Texas are allowed to use that word). It was so pretty I had to take a picture of it.
Yeah, yeah… so I’m not a food blogger and I don’t have a big fancy camera but the food on that plate is a masterpiece. It is called Chipotle-Glazed Roast Chicken with
Sweet Potatoes Butternut Squash. (I didn’t have sweet potatoes) I can’t tell you how yummy this was. The sweet, smoky, spicy combo blew my mind and to tell you the truth I think I’m going to have to stick to the butternut squash on this one because it tasted like candy with a slight kick… and we all know I love my candy.
Give this recipe a try or better yet make that mini bow and arrow… now that, my friends, is an accomplishment.
