I'm sure by now everyone has heard of Pinterest.
It's the place where you can find everything from humor,
to DIY, (wine bottle decor),
A common theme on Pinterest is that members (membership is free) sit at their computers all day and create pins about things they're never actually going to do in real life.
Well I decided I needed to get off that procrastination wagon and use some of those ideas I'd been saving as pins. ("Pins" are easy, see something you like on Pinterest, click on it and save it to your personal pin board).
And I'd been pinning a lot of recipes so I thought that was a good place to start. Since we have our children over every other week for family dinner they were to be my guinea pigs.
We started dinner with Cucumber Feta Rolls.
Everyone loved them.
Next up, Feta and Ricotta Spinach Rolls.
Great tasting and super easy.
I forgot to take a photo of the Roasted Cabbage with Lemon. Yum.
Here's a pic from the recipe site:
The meat course was Super Simple Slow Cooker Steak Pizzaiola.
My photo didn't turn out well but here's the photo from the web site:
Everyone loved it as well.
Down to dessert. I usually make a couple attempts at dessert for these dinners for two reasons. One, Chris is not a chocolate fanatic but Vanessa and I are. Two, Kim likes leftovers for his work week.
This Zebra Cake appealed to me. It was interesting to make and tasted great.
Second dessert course, Upside Down Apple Pie.
Even chocolate free this one was a winner.
If you're not on Pinterest yet I recommend it. Just be sure to put some of it to use. (Or not).
