Pinterest Feeds Me...

Hello All! So, I tried this blog thing before but I didn't really seem to stick. I am going to try again because lately I have thought, "I wish I had a blog to write about that..." Well, now I do! A lot of my supposed posts have to do with food, Pinterest, and the likes. Tonight, I made yet another recipe from Pinterest. Now, I am one of those girls that pins ALL sorts of things that will NEVER come to life. 1) Because I don't have that kind of time in the day 2) I don't have enough money 3) The sheer number of pins at this point is daunting. Well I have decided to start cooking dinner every night (okay, most nights :) and ALL of my recipes are coming from Pintetest. If its good or could use some tweaking to make it perfect then it stays on my cooking board. If it sucks, it gets axed! Now, I am no chef...I like cheap, easy, quick, etc. so don't be expecting some gourmet feasts!

Okay, back to tonight. I made shrimp penne with a tomato cream sauce. One of my favorite substitutions is using Greek yogurt (in New Zealand spelled yoghurt) in place of heavy cream, sour cream, etc. I can't even taste the difference and Ben allows it...that is saying a lot! I used twirly pasta instead of penne, cayenne instead of crushed red pepper (already had it in the pantry) and canned tomatoes (cheaper) but other than that stuck to the recipe. It was good! And it made enough for lunch leftovers for both Ben and I! That's my kind of meal... Some nit-picky things are: the sauce was a little thin so I may add some cornstarch, flour, whatever next time but other than that...delicious! It was quick and easy!


Now, I am going to a book club next week so I have to go actually read the book! See you again soon!

I like Pinterest too! But I mostly drool over things I don't make, haha. I'm glad you're starting a blog:) Hope you're having a blast in NZ!
