My husband rolls his eyes and shakes his head when I make the following statement…”I think Pinterest is one of the most ingenious internet ideas in a very long time.” Since he works in IT, he disagrees. (Of course, he is a guy who wouldn’t be pinning the sort of things that I pin anyway. Come to think of it, I wonder how many guys are on Pinterest.)
So, what is Pinterest, you ask? It is an online filing system of sorts for all kinds of things, but all “pins” must contain an image. You can find beautiful images of recipes, home decorating, wardrobe ensemble, crafting ideas, quotes, vacation destinations, helpful tips on just about any subject, and much more. It is called “Pinterest” because it’s like pinning something you’ve found interesting on a bulletin board for future use. I have found Pinterest to be so helpful in finding new recipes, posting my own allergy-friendly recipes to reach a larger community, and finding all kinds of new ideas for home and life. You can follow my Pinterest board here. Want your own Pinterest account? Simply apply for one. It doesn’t take very long for them to get back to you.

Our Food Allergy Home Meal Plan for the week of November 27, 2011
Sunday: Refrigerator Round-up (After traveling for a chunk of the day, this was the perfect dinner.)
Monday: Cubed Steak, Sauteed Zucchini, Potato Wedges
Tuesday: Chicken, Basil, & Kidney Bean Stew
Wednesday: Penne Pasta with Balsamic Sweet Potatoes & Spinach (I may use asparagus that I have already.)
Thursday: Mongolian Beef
Friday: Refrigerator Round-up (Needs to be an easy night since we’re trying to make it to a school Christmas concert a distance away.)
Saturday: PLOV (Russian Rice Pilaf) – We are going out for a date night with friends to see one of the best Christmas concerts ever.
Dessert: Almond Cake (Will try to make dairy & egg-free.)
Do you have a meal plan this week? If so, feel free to share it in the comment section.
Note: There will be no Willing Cook-A-Long new recipe challenge for the next two weeks. Instead, I’m starting a 12 Days of Christmas series, Willing Cook style. If you’ve made the Cajun Chicken Pasta, just hold on to your review for a couple of weeks. In the meantime, if you have a Christmas-y recipe that you’d like to submit to the 12 Days of Christmas series, please email me.
