Food photos are so Pinteresting

I spend about a half an hour a day looking at Pinterest links. It's a great way to relax. I do think I'm a little addicted, but there are worse things I could be doing.

I knew nothing about Pinterest until I was given an assignment to find out what it was all about. I wrote this article about my first experiences on Pinterest back in March. 

I like the final paragraph; 
"Since I was a little girl, I’ve loved flipping the pages of catalogs and magazines. Pinterest is like finding little photographic dreams and pinning them to your wall."
I have 27 boards to pin on. My favorite board seems to be Crazy Food! which currently has 234 pins on it. I pin most of my food porn, with the exception of slow cooker food which goes on It's a Crock! and cheesy, delicious food which goes on Why Do I Love Cheese So Much?

I have a whole board dedicated to Beverages and there are a few food items on the Things in a Jar page.

I almost forgot my Yum!!! board, which is dedicated to my most decadent, favorite dishes even though the cover photo is of yummy Iron Man himself, Robert Downey Jr. I felt it was totally appropriate.

Based on my favorites, I must dream about food nothing but food. I also have my On the Road board where I post all my travel planning, camping and places photos. I guess there's food on that one too, camping food.

And then I have my Feeling Good! board with all my exercise, skin care and healthy snack food ideas.

I also have boards called In the Kitchen, Outside, In the Yard and Books (This is very serious stuff).
  1. I prepare food in the kitchen
  2. I BBQ outside.
  3. We picnic in the yard.
  4. I collect cook books.
Wow. I think I have an addiction and it's not Pinterest. I'm going to create a new Get Your Butt Off the Couch! board right now. Maybe I can stand and pin...
