After yesterday's post, I went and zoned out for a good couple hours, but then got back online to see if anyone else had posted a new entry (I really enjoy keeping up with people's blogs); it seems people post either in the early/mid morning or the late afternoon/late evening. Being the latter portion of the day, I found a few new entries and began reading. The effects have still not worn off!
First, I find a new entry by Megan called "dance a little, eat a little, run...later." She goes through telling an adorable story about a daddy daughter dance she attended as a disney princess. I honestly love hearing about those crazy cool events for kids and their parents; you should check it out (no, really - go!). Anyways, onto eating. At the end of Meg's posts she always leaves a few questions for her readers. One of these was "What is your favorite way to eat potatoes?" I like the idea of having questions to engage your readers; it engages them. For myself, I began thinking about potatoes - maybe baked potatoes with butter and a little cheese; especially with a good steak or fish fillet. Or maybe home fries! Ooo... home fries! (*eyes begin opening wide like an excited child*) This is when I began having a craving for home fries. So I did the only thing I could - I made home fries!
Ok, so I waited 'till breakfast, but the power of suggestion manifested itself into my action of getting up and heading to the grocery store early to get potatoes, seasoning, and strawberries. I'm quite happy with my choice! Craving satisfied!! Thanks Megan!
After reading Meg's blog entry, I went to read anther new entry by A Runner's Fuel called "6 Miles is Now a Short Run." This entry wasted NO time by having a big picture of pizza right in your face! The power of suggestion strikes again - I want pizza! Unfortunately (or maybe "luckily") it was already late for me last night when I got to the blog, so I didn't have time to pop a pizza in the oven. But the craving is still there! I already had breakfast and today's lunch and dinner are already planned for a friend's birthday, so it might have to wait until Monday, but pizza will be on the menu much sooner than later. haha
A Runner's Fuel also posted a THIS RECIPE for home made granola bars a day or two ago that are on my "to make" list!
I love to cook and come up with cool new ideas for food, but it's much easier to just get cravings and/or suggestions from others (less brain power required). Therefore, I encourage you all to continue posting pictures of food!
1. What did you have for breakfast today?
I made what you see in the picture above.
2. What are you up to on this Sunday?
It's my lazy day off, so I made breakfast, gonna' go to lunch, see Shrek the Musical, and hang out with friends.
Stay fit. Stay healthy.
