Happy FRIDAY EVE all! I am sure you are all wondering about my title. If you are a blogger, after you read on, you will know exactly what I mean and I hope I am not the only who thinks “in blog”. If you are not, then, you all just might get a little chuckle about how my brain works all day long.
I find myself having animated conversations in my head ALL DAY long thinking about how I will tell you all about my day, what delicious thing I ate, a funny event that happened or new product I found. You see it isn’t just about food or obsessing over which placemat I used last or and if I need to “add” something to make it look “prettier”.
I can’t tell you how many random plates, cups, bowls and things like my bamboo silverware I own because I cannot WAIT to use them for a recipe or picture. I will pick things up in the store and say out loud…..”Oh, this would look so good with this recipe or how cute are these, I totally NEED to get them, you know, for the blog!”
You see, it doesn’t stop there….as I am making a recipe, my camera gets covered in what’s for dinner as I snap a bazillion pictures, the “voices” in my head are talking and telling you all the story how I made it.
It usually starts first thing when I wake up in the morning, my brain turns on and starts thinking about what would be good to eat BEFORE I even get out of bed LOL.
Crockpot Peach Steel Cut Oats with 1 Tbsp Whipped Butter & 1 Tbsp Brown Sugar (7 PP)
At times, I find myself randomly whipping out my camera to show you all the awesome sunrise I saw….
Or randomly shooting pictures while driving home from the Farmer’s Market because I can’t wait to show you the funniest bike I’ve ever seen…..
Then again, I am pretty sure only “bloggers” get so excited to see the Wiener Mobile in the grocery store parking lot, that they do a U-turn, just so they can take a picture to share LOL.
It doesn’t stop there either I actually “think about” and “focus” on how my BANANA Frozen Yogurt “pipes” into my container and I pick toppings that stand out in pictures. Then, my brain says, ok, now, for a colorful background and I totally use the yogurt shops Jelly Belly ad ( 7 PP)
I honestly think at today’s lunch, I might have “learned” my lesson. I just had boring romaine lettuce, no tomatoes, no peppers or cucumbers….nothing that adds color except Trader Joe’s Spicy Peanut Dressing. (2 PP)
So…drum roll, I added CRUSHED RED PEPPER flakes…not a little, but, enough for them to show up in the picture and you know, add color!
HOLY HOTNESS…although, it did help me get in 32 ounces of water at lunch!
When I got home, I thought, OMG, this will be such a great “blog topic” tonight.
I can tell everyone how The Husband and his friend requested “dinner” and instead of taking the easy way out and BUYING pizza. I made a “build a pizza bar” for Healthy Flat Out Amazing Mushroom & Mini Turkey Pepperoni Pizzas because you all know I have a thing for all “mini things” and I have been dying to use my mini Turkey Pepperoni’s ever since I bought them .(7 PP)
As I am making up my salad, I think of “what colors” I have it in ~ topped with my favorite dressing of the moment ~ 1 Tbsp Trader Joe’s Spicy Peanut Vinaigrette (2 pp)
Then, pretty much because I can and it would be another fun picture since I felt like I didn’t really have any today, I whipped up Yellow Cupcakes with Homemade Chocolate frosting as dessert for the boys.
I am not going to lie…I didn’t have a cupcake, but, I DID like the beaters and I RESISTED taking a picture (2 PP just in case).
Sometimes, I can’t wait to blog just so I can share some FUN THINGS with you all:
* I signed up for BlogHerFood 11 today! If you are going or live in Atlanta and want to meet up in May, let me know because I am want to meet you.
Blog or not….Do you have think “in blog” or have conversations with yourself all day long?
I think my post tonight sounded better in my head while I was doing dishes LOL….but, there you have it….I usually come up with my posts all day long as I think “in blog” and listen to the voices in my head.
P.S. I promise, I didn’t put anything in the crockpot to cook tonight
