I’m in the Mood for Munchies

It’s clean up day after this past weekend’s record breaking Snowpocalyps.  Being cooped up for a couple of days is nice, but right about now cabin fever is kicking in.
Big Time!
I haven’t got as bored *or as  crazy* as this girl

… oh the naiveté of youth…*side-eye*…

No.  Snowpocalyps has not put me in the mood to strip down to my skivvies, but it has brought on a decent size car of the munchies.  If you’re like me, you have you favorite ‘go to’ munchies that always hit the spot- popcorn,  chips with dip,  s’mores, some type of fruit bowl,  anything with loads of cheese. ….you know what I mean.  Today’s munch craving is a little different.  I’m wanting something that is not sooo ‘snack like’.

So I turned to one My Pinterest Board: Hello.IAmPhat Luvs {Food Glorious Food}

…. and came up with this goodness!

Fries with Lemon Salt & Rosemary



This deliciously savory side dish is from the sinfully tasteful blog – Alexandra Cooks.

This is her first recipe using lemon salt. I’d say it’s a home run!!!!


Fried Mozzarella, Basil & Nectarine Stacks Fried-Mozzarella-Basil-and-Nectarine-Stacks-with-Balsamic-Glaze-12

Homemade BBQ Chipstumblr_m12ohbasSr1qe2zgqo1_400

Alone or with your fav fun food {I’m thinking hot dog,  hamburger,  steak hoagie} chips are always a hit.  And the Purple Gypsy Home blogger makes the unforgettable.

I’m on my way to the kitchen…..

Tell me…. What munchies are you craving?

Good Morning Luv-lies

How are you surviving the big chill and deep freeze that has befallen on much of  ‘The States’?  I’ll eventually dig myself out {I guess}.  My hope is that I’ll be able to make it to the market – not that I need anything – I took care of that on Monday before all this ‘weather hell’ broke loose.

For now,  I’m enjoying trekking through the world of social media.  Usually my gallivanting takes to the many sites that I luv to hang out at, but this morning I did something a little different.   Instead, I googled myself  – have you done that?  I find it funny that, even though I know that I was going to show up somewhere on the page, I smiled with delight to find myself there…. silly me :).  I spent some time clicking the links and perusing my sites but eventually I settled in at my pinterest site.  The truth is, I luv Pinterest.  But for some reason, when I’m updating/interacting or just hanging out and spending time, I seemed to forget that I have a page.

I’m not sure why I don’t stop more often.  My lack of being there probably explains why I don’t have many followers.  That’s okay, because amassing some ‘off the chart’ amount of ‘Followers’ is not the reason that I do this.   To date I have 31 Boards, 524 Pins and 239 ‘Likes’ and, suffice it to say that I am grateful.

If you have a little time, I’d luv to share with you, a little bit of what I do when I am there.  Here are a few of the ‘Boards’ that I ‘Pin’ to::

I collect #Yumlicious recipes and meal ideas.  Like this delicious looking Quinoa Pancakes With Blueberry Maple Syrup from a board entitled ‘Food Glorious Food’.

  My goal is to, eventually, prepare every single recipe including this one

Shoe Porn to be ‘sported’ and not really for working out.  I’ve gotta have these little gems…..

I’ve thrown in a board dedicated to all those clever gadgets…. because what is life without clever gadgets? Right?

And because all of this working out has to have a payoff, there’s some awesome ‘pins’ of  what I call ‘the girly stuff’

So there you have it.  A small glimpse into my world on Pinterest.

You know, now that I’ve spent some time in this space and especially since I’ve enjoyed sharing my ‘pinnings’ with you, I really have to get there more often.

It’s a luv-lie space.  Come and join me some time.  I promise to be there more frequently.

Where in the world of social media do you spend your time…..  Do Tell…..
