I still don’t know how I feel about this new Pinterest fad.
It seems like yet another way to waste time and really, who has more time to waste?
Well truth be told, given the number of pins I see on a daily basis, I guess its safe to say plenty of us.
In any event, time wasting aside, my problem with Pinterest is that it’s just too much. Too many ideas, pins, boards, crafts, outfits, recipes, books, tutorials… see I’m already getting overwhelmed!
As if my to-do list wasn’t long enough as it is, this stupid site comes along, sucks me in and gives me a billion more ideas of things “I want” to do. But that’s the thing, they’re things I want to do but likely won’t EVER do. Because I don’t have time. Why? Because I’m wasting that extra time on that damn site (oh and Facebook, watching TV, reading books, Facebooking statusing, Web-surfing, a little bit more Facebook stalking but most importantly nestling up to Sweets).
And so thanks to this jumble of inspiration, I’ve had to add all these new things to my to-do/to-cook/to-make/to-something list but more-often than not that’s where these ideas stay… on some board I created on Pinterest… and whenever I look at this world of stuff I’ve yet to do… I get this stupid “I have so much to do!” anxiety.
It’s. Just. Too. Much.
But tonight I decided to make some progress tackling that list and can now check off not just one but TWO things that pinterested me.
To keep things real I also broke into a little treat (Strawberry Infused Tequila) you may remember from last summer that’s brewing for an upcoming party.
Mexican Lime Soup
Why is Mexican you ask? Well because the recipe is from Wiliams & Sonoma and if anyone or thing knows what makes something all Puro Mexicano it’s that place. If you don’t know me well enough to sense it… please forgive the sarcasm.
But whatever it’s called, or who named it that, this is a really good soup. It’s similar to soups I’ve made before (this and this) but takes on a delicious tang with fresh squeezed limes and feta garnish that really helps it stand out. Stand out in some seriously delicious glory. Oh it’s also super easy so there’s really no excuse not to check this one off as soon as possible.
